A very moving monument to the souls lost during the Communist era. Worth walking to the top to see the minimal remains and view from the top.

The most powerful memorial of the victims of the communist era. It is like a performance smelted of iron.

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
