Tickets for the 'Kings of the Sun' exhibition in Prague have sold out until June 6, shortly after it was reopened following the lifting of COVID-19 lockdown in the Czech capital.
Ibrahim Mostafa, the Inspector escorting the exhibition, said the exhibition was visited by almost 10,000 people since its reopening in early May. The visitors are divided into six groups per day, each consisting between 65 to 66 people.
The exhibition was officially inaugurated in August 2020, which coincided with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the start of Czech archaeological work in Egypt.
It was inaugurated by the minister of tourism and antiquities along with the Czech prime minister. On display, there are 90 artefacts unearthed during excavations conducted by the Czech mission in Abusir.
Among the most valuable items on display is a basalt statue of King Raneferef, carved around the year 2460 BC, alongside other objects and statues from the Old Kingdom.
