Oldřich Kulhánek's World of Banknotes

You are warmly invited to a new temporary exhibition entitled Oldřich Kulhánek's World of Banknotes. The exhibition, with its many symbols and intricate details, will guide visitors through the banknote design work of the Czech painter, graphic designer and illustrator Oldřich Kulhánek. The initial designs he created for Czechoslovak paper money in the early 1970s will be on show. Other exhibits will include his satirical Funny Money lithographs and the banknotes we use to this day.

The exhibition is located in the Visitor Centre in Prague. It will be on display throughout 2024 during Visitor Centre opening hours.

To accompany the exhibition, we have created a new cycle of educational videos called Explore Oldřich Kulhánek's World of Banknotes (available in Czech only). The videos give a detailed insight into the various motifs Kulhánek incorporated into his designs for each banknote denomination. They can be found on the CNB Visitor Centre website under Objevte svět bankovek Oldřicha Kulhánka – cyklus videí here.
