Communist History in Prague

By John Reality, Cambodia, August 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Anybody from the Czech Republic will tell you that their communist past was amongst the most repressive of times for the country, and as a result, there are several monuments in the city of Prague serving as reminders to the ways of life and losses during that regime.

For a good crash course of Prague’s communist history, swing over first to the Museum of Communism, which highlights everything from daily life then, to politics, to the arts from the February coup in 1948 and to its sudden collapse in 1989. The museum includes several photos and items acquired from the era and includes a particularly interesting video montage shown in at least 6 languages. Although the building itself could use a little work the content is why you are there, and it is as informational as it is moving.
