Museum of Communism in Prague

At the beginning and end of the exhibition you find information about the important events and political changes in years 1948 (Communist coup), 1968 (Prague spring), 1969 (self-immolation of Jan Palach), 1989 (Velvet revolution).
The greater part of the exhibition focuses on the life behind the Iron Curtain – how was the normal living of a person in different aspects of life and society. You find there all kinds of interesting topics such as industrialization, school, vacation, secret police, religion, labor camps, etc.
Interesting is to find out that the Soviet Union got its uranium in Czechoslovakia for enriching its nuclear weapons. Miners were political prisoners in labor camps. Many of them died in 1950s because of horrible living and working conditions. Visit an authentic Communist labor camp near Prague on a guided tour with Supreme Prague.
