A Walk Through Post-Industrial Holešovice
Prague's Communist Past
Now stop here and look to your right. Can you see the building with the square columns? Walk just to the left of the columns and look for a grey marble plaque embedded in the wall.
Every now and then, you find reminders of Prague's Communist past. This plaque reminds us that on February 23rd, 1929, the Communist party had its historical 5th convention. Klement Gottwald was elected the new party leader, and he led the working people of Prague to their glorious victory.
Now continue down the road to the next intersection. I'll tell you a little more about Gottwald when we get there.
