Memorial to the Victims of Communism

Local namePomník obětem komunismu
LocationMalá Strana, Prague, Czechia

When heading to Petrin Hill, don't forget to stop by to see several statues remembering the victims of the Communist era. Notice the metal strip in the middle of the stairs, displaying how many people had suffered during this regime.

Installed in 2002, these sculptures depict the physical pain and emotional distress of the victims of the communist regime. Notice how each of the statues is decaying more and more, losing limbs and being torn apart. However, despite the hardships, the sculptures are still standing and representing the strength of the people who fought for democracy and against totalitarianism.
