In April 1911 famous scientist Albert Einstein was nominated Full Professor of Theoretical Physics at Charles University of Prague. At that time Einstein was already renowned for his first studies on the famous Theory of Relativity and for many other important studies on thermodynamics and molecular physics as well as statistical mechanics and quantum theory.


Einstein moved from Zurich to Prague along with his first wife, Mileva, and their two children, Hans Albert and Eduard. The Einstein’s family lived in an apartment in the Smichov neighbourhood (now Lesnicka Street No. 7). Einstein loved to remember his long strolls at the Instute of Physics in Viničná Street, along the Moldava river. Einstein defined that Institute as “excellent and with a great library”.


Einstein admired the historic and romantic city of Prague where he had met other intellectuals such as Berta Fanta, Hugo Bergmann, Max Brod e Franz Kafka. During his staying in Prague, Einstein was invited to the legendary first Solvay Conference where he met for the first time Planck, Lorentz, Madame Curie and Poincaré. Many scientists used to go to Prague to meet Einstein, perhaps the most important one was Paul Ehrenfest.

As a Full Professor, Einstein held regular lessons on mechanics, molecular physics and thermodynamics. During his years in Prague, Einstein’s interest in quantum theory decreased as he started to work on the Theory of Relativity. 


While in Prague, he published 11 studies, 6 of which concerning the Theory of Relativity. His publications during the Prague period and immediately after are particularly meaningful as they paved the road to his Theory of Relativity.
