Some of the backdrops here are as entertaining as the wax figures themselves: Franz Kafka stands beside convincing reconstructions of a shop and inn of his time; Emperor Rudolf II and his court alchemist - the Englishman Edward Kelley - stand watching an experiment in Kelley's dim laboratory. There are many figures from Czech history here, from Austrian emperors to the first Czech Communist President Klement Gottwald as well as cultural figures such as Antonin Dvorak, movie director Milos Forman and playwright-turned-president Vaclav Havel. The only thing that seems to be lacking is information which puts the characters in the context of their time. A short multimedia projection entitled "Love through Seven Centuries" explores the romantic nature of Prague.
