Pozornost vzbudila moderne architektonicky resena restaurace, ktera byla po ukonceni vystavy prevezena do Prahy a umistena v Letenskych sadech, Laterna magika a celkova koncepce exhibice. Hlavni cenu v mezinarodni filmove prehlidce ziskal vedecko-fantasticky film Karla Zemana Vynalez zkazy. Behem pripravy ceskoslovenske expozice doslo k urcitemu kulturnimu uvolneni.

-----------------------
The Czechoslovak pavilion was visited by 6 million people and was officially awarded the best pavilion of the Expo 58.

The exposition "One Day in Czechoslovakia" was designed by Jindrich Santar who cooperated with artists Jirí Trnka, Antonín Kybal, Stanislav Libenský and Jan Kotík. Architects of the simple, but modern and graceful construction were František Cubr, Josef Hrubý and Zdenek Pokorný. The team's artistic freedom, so rare in the hard-line communist regime of the 1950s, was ensured by the government committee for exhibitions chairman František Kahuda. He supported the famous Laterna Magika show, as well as Josef Svoboda's technically unique polyecran.
