Do you find events of long ago boring? A visit to Pavlov will turn you into a real fan of prehistory! Your kids will remember this spectacular exhibition for a long time to come.
Here strange white cubes are jutting out from the inside of a hill. Is this what a museum of prehistory looks like? It rather resembles a backdrop from a sci-fi film... The Archeopark has won prestigious awards for its unusual architectural design.
Step inside and you will understand why – the airy space and soft light make ancient history come to life. Archaeological sites within the local hills hide entire settlements which were created by modern Homo sapiens in Europe 30,000 years ago. You are just a few steps away from one such site! All you have to do is step behind a glass wall with a special climate and let the projection illuminate the archaeological treasures directly on the surface of the excavated soil. It was a very lively and happening place here in the Paleolithic.
On an area of five hundred square meters you can see original stone tools, objects made from bone and used for hunting and for everyday life, art and rituals, burial and magic. This is where the oldest known evidence of textile production in the world comes from. Technology and multimedia exhibits have been enthusiastically employed here, so the era of our ancestors comes to life in many forms before your eyes.
The vast collection of discovered skeletal remains of human beings of the current type and their entire environment places the site just below Pálava among the leading archaeological sites on a global scale. Let the Archeopark fascinate you with its unique character!
