DescriptionThe National Library of the Czech Republic accommodates in its vaults the world-famous as well as less known rare works of the written and documentary heritage of the mankind. The App PoNaK - Treasures of the National Library of the Czech Republic presents an exquisite selection of these holdings.
Thirty precious manuscripts, Baroque graphic works, travell books, and historical maps from the Central European region, all represent treasures whose originals can be seen only very rarely at exhibitions. The brilliant, comprehensive digital copies of the originals - formatted for presentation on Android devices - provide a fascinating insight into the treasures kept in the National Library of the Czech Republic. Definitely worth viewing is the pictorial manuscript Codex Pictoricus Mexicanus by Czech Jesuit Ignatz Tirsch, or the travel book Relatio cuiusdam missionarii Austriaci catholici de itinere Asoviam et Taganrog and of course many others. The manuscripts and other documents can be browsed only in the selection of pages.
