In the 1990s, Piatnik extended their range of packs featuring historical characters from different European countries and regions – Scotland, Bavaria, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, etc. This one features historical figures from Bohemia and Moravia (roughly equivalent in area to the modern-day Czech Republic) on the double-ended court cards, including Jan Hus, the religious reformer. The back design includes the arms of both Bohemia and Moravia set against either a red or a blue background. Piatnik No. 2554. See the box►
