The anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain – and the Communist regime in Eastern Europe along with it – is approaching. Come with us and explore the traces it left behind.

Traces of the Communist Regime The Czech Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia, fell under the influence of the communist Soviet Union that lasted for more than 40 years after WWII. The ‘Iron Curtain’ came down and a barbed-wire fence was erected along the western borders with free Europe. The Czechs did not regain their freedom and democracy until 1989. Each year on 17 November we commemorate the anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which ended the reign of the Communist regime. But that regime unavoidably stuck in the memory of the Czech people, cities, and the entire country.
