Archdiocese of Prague


In 973 AC, the first Prague bishop, Dětmar (Ditmars), was instated. His successor Vojtěch (St. Adalbert) is the patron of the Archdiocese of Prague. Thanks to the initiative of Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV, the Diocese of Prague was upgraded to Archdiocese. The first Archbishop of Prague was Arnošt z Pardubic (Ernest from Pardubice), who also initiated the building of St. Vitus Cathedral. The Archbishop of Prague obtained the right to crown the Czech kings and queens. Since 1348, when Charles University was established, the Archbishop has also served as the Great Chancellor of the University. Since 2007, the Archdiocese of Prague has consisted of 247 parishes with 889 churches situated in the center of Bohemia.

AMU

Academy of Performing Arts in Prague

 


AVU

The Academy of Fine Arts in Prague was established in 1799 by a decree passed by Emperor Franz I. The impetus for the creation of the Academy came from the “Society of Patriotic Art Lovers”, a philanthropic fellowship of enlightened aristocrats who had previously founded the Picture Gallery (today’s National Gallery) and thus laid the foundation for the preservation of individual artworks and collections, as well as for education in the arts. In 1925 the school became the first art school in Bohemia to acquire the status of a university. It gradually expanded its fields of study (in 1945, for example, the Art Conservation Department was opened), and in 1990 internal reforms led to multimedia disciplines becoming part of its program.


BBLA - Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association
