DW from U.S.A. 10/2009
If you are a tourist, and know little about Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic, and perhaps the rest of the grim history of the Cold War, and you're inclined to feel a bit sorry for yourself because the crowds are too big, your feet hurt, and you can't get in the restaurant you wanted to, go to The Museum of Communism. What you will find is that all the glorious, funny, warm and fascinating world of the Czech Republic is like a flower emerging from a hard winter. And if you are Czech, and by chance are too young to have witnessed or have tired of hearing of your nation's history of sorrow in this period, and tired of hearing of Charter 77 and of the idea of heroism and courage, go to this museum to see what suffering and despair is, and why the Velvet Revolution is a phrase that will live forever, not just in the history of the Czech Republic, but in the more glorious hours of world history.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in late November 1989, when we arrived at the Hotel Europa, a gloomy, outpost on Wenceslaus square of news photographers, beautiful if crumbling Art Nouveau architecture, and the quiet still of an empty street. The ?edoks were closed (and when they were open, as I recall, they had things like Chinese fountain pens--they seem to be travel agencies today, not stores), there were a few parked cars, and almost nothing moving except for the flickering candles under the Vaclav statue, and the small groups of people there, discussing (I assume) the incredible events of a few days before. A few days later, when we were visiting at a Czech relative's home, we watched with our hosts the first and last press conference of the Communist government, while an obscure 1967 song from the U.S. about Bonnie and Clyde was playing on the radio. I remember being the only person watching the Old Town Square Astronomical clock chiming the hour. Today, Vaclav Namesti is filled with cars, Russians, tourists, and all the wonders and less-than-wonderful changes of a major world city, like Venice or Paris or Rome or London; and it is hard to remember the gloomy, tense, fearful and hopeful place that my wife and I stumbled into. This museum brings history alive, brings alive again the shadows, the darkness, the cold that was more than physical in those last hours of winter.
