This month the museum is celebrating 29 years since opening to the public.

You can learn about how public transport technology has developed and changed over the years, and all around the museum there are panels mapping the evolution of public transport in Prague for the last 140 years.

The birth of nations has historically come in regional clusters. An empire falls, an ideology accelerates, or an economic success allows some to marvel in philosophy. Prior to, during and after WWI, all of the factors were taking place in Central and Eastern Europe and as war dragged on, the question of nations built on languages and national identities found support. Sadly, these amazingly difficult and liberating times have always laid in the shadows of the atrocities committed during the follow-up war, WWII. It took until the fall of the Soviet Union for much of the world to realize that there are great civilizations, countries and ancient empires hidden behind the great walls and iron curtains erected under the flagContinue Reading

Happy 600th (ok, 601st to be precise) birthday to Tabor! The charming historic town takes the name from “camp” or “encampment” in Czech and was the HQ of the radical wing of the Hussites who dreamt of an egalitarian peasant commune. Catholic and imperial armies wet their diapers for decades at the sight of their armored carriages and mighty walls standing atop the biblically named Jordan reservoir, the oldest of its kind in Central Europe. A labyrinth of hundreds of meters of interconnected tunnels, partially open to visits, protected the townspeople until the capture by King George of Poděbrady (yes, good old JZP is not only a metro stop). A Lego and Chocolate “museum” will delight the little ones beforeContinue Reading

From the baroque gems of bucolic farmlands in Kryštofovo Údolí (Christofsgrund in pre-WW2 German) climbing 600 meters towards the 70s Soviet-era sci-fi seduction of Ještěd hotel & TV tower, a rewarding hike across pine tree forests is a journey both in space and travel. The recent snow adds a magic touch to the natural park and a halo of vintage magic to the daring viaduct of the local railway, once the pride of the prosperous German-speaking community of Sudetenland. The only remaining memory, following the expulsion of the German-speaking Czechoslovak citizens, are the typical lozenges tiles decorations of delightful farmhouses and the names on the tombstones of the splendid 17th century wooden church of St Kryštof. We recommend a pleasantContinue Reading

I would rather demonstrate what helps you quench travelers’ curiosity in the digital age. I know the travel plans of all people are impacted right now. But we will continue fulfillingContinue Reading
