The 13th of May marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Maria Theresa, a queen who was the only female ruler of the Czech monarchy. Aside from various reforms which she brought to the country, she also introduced the labeling of houses with numbers and made education compulsory. Furthermore, the Prague Castle was rebuilt to its current form under her reign which is why this day will mark the beginning of its summer season this year.
