The inconspicuous Museum of Special Education
can be found in the city's central square, hailing the tradition of a schooling system for these fellow citizens. The museum allows visitors to feel what it is like to be in the shoes of a person who neither sees nor hears.
The invention of the Braille writing system is immense. There is probably no country where the system is not used. Figures such as Braille and Hrebenda allowed visually-impaired people to gain knowledge, education and culture. It is the duty of our society to help with their integration and to make equal opportunities available for them.
