Welcome to the Golden Memories Gallery

Great that you found your way to our Online Gallery! We’ve prepared 11 sections for you, each exploring a different theme about the 1964 Olympic Games. In doing so, we’ve dug around a lot of photos from dusty sports archives all over Europe and picked out the most extraordinary and beautiful shots to facilitate a great retrospective. We have even found unpublished photographs from private hands. Now sit back, light up your screen, turn your phone to wide-view mode and let yourself be whisked away into the past!

About this Project

This Online Gallery is intended to offer a look behind the scenes of the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo by recreating its atmosphere and reliving the memories of a few participating Olympians. The project has been created and coordinated by the Czech Olympic Academy in cooperation with members of the European Olympic Academies (EOA) and is promoted by various Olympic Organisations such as the European Olympic Committees, many National Olympic Committees and Academies and The Olympic Museum.
