This memorial has atmosphere and shows part of the history which should never repeat again. It is important to remind it so we never forget this period of no-freedom.

These statues explain the struggles of communism and make it an easy way of explaining to children too

Worth the hike to get to this location just below the Lesser City. Take the time to walk to the top of the hill as well to see he old wall. These statues are a memorial to Communist victims and quite eerie.

Art with a message that recalls out past so that it is note repeated is evident in the Hunger Wall sculpture. The lives that were lost during the communist era left families asking difficult questions. Charles IV ordered the building of a wall to serve...More

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
