I posted the above picture last year, following our last visit to Prague, with an intention to look up the Museum of Communism the next time we visited the city – which turned out to happen sooner than I expected – about a week ago, to be precise. So made good on promise to self, and shot a few pictures (below).

I shan’t go into details, except maybe by drawing your attention to last week’s RTI Sunday special, Prague edition, in which I described the museum in some detail.

Overlooking the Vltava river and central Prague, you find the semi-functional Metronome in the Letná park, instead of the massive Joseph Stalin sculpture, taken down in 1962. The 23-metre-tall Metronome, however, wasn’t erected until 1991, following the late 1989 Velvet revolution, designed by Vratislav Novak.

More on Communism in a later post on my Museum of Communism visit a couple of days ago.

So much to see, so little time

Found, of course, across the entire former east bloc, but there simply wasn’t time for my primary target (alongside the KGB museum), ironically located above a McDonald’s restaurant.

Will have to make a certain Robocop’s words my own, then:

I’ll be back.

OK, so I promised my vacation blogging days were over, but there’s still a picture or two to be posted, so bear with me.
