About the walk
Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, Narodni trida, New Town. Two world wars, 3 revolutions, finally we achieved freedom again, living in peace and democracy, unfortunately still spoiled with corruption,surviving from the times, when wisdom was left behind. We‘ll concentrate on 20th century, after 1918 as split from Austrian Empire, Czech nation became a state with one of the most powerful economics in Europe but 40 years of communism destroyed nearly everything - our skills, our characters, our selfconfidence, our industry.Almost 250 000 people emigrated during that sad period. Now we have freedom again, do we appreciate it or not? Were there some advantages in previous system? What do local people think now after almost 22 years after the revolution? How about EU?
