A Walk Through Post-Industrial Holešovice
History Comes to Life
Keep walking straight.
While we are walking, try to visualise this place 100 years ago: smoking chimneys, the streets bustling with activity, goods being loaded and unloaded...
Here you would have found lines of storehouses, tiny workshops and huge production sites. From almost every building you would have heard the noise of machines. The things that were made here included ceramic tiles, iron furniture, paint, gloves and tinned fish - not to mention the famous Prague ham that became one of the Czech's biggest export hits.
Today, there is still a multitude of chimneys, many of which are invisible from the streets. And in many places you can still find the remains of railway tracks in the cobbled roads.
Continue down the street. I'll catch up with you in a moment.
