This is how simple we have it today. But how did our ancestors measure and mark the Earth’s surface in past centuries? What did maps and measuring instruments look like when satellites did not fly around the planet to verify the accuracy of what was measured? You will find the answers in the Moravian Cartographic Centre, in a beautiful and award-winning interior.
The main exhibit has an area of one hundred square metres! Is that more than the area of your whole flat even with balcony? This is more than just an ordinary museum. There was no other place where a giant plastic map of Moravia and Silesia created at the beginning of the 20th century could be displayed, due to its vast dimensions. Only here was it possible to let it stand out with all its beauty.
All in all, you can find there everything related to cartography and geodesy, the way in which maps are created today and much more. After all, it is the largest exhibition of maps and surveying in the entire Czech Republic.
