 From the Nazi invasion to the Communist takeover, the Czech Republic underwent a grueling 20th Century. Prague's beautiful New Town was in the eye of the storm.

  • The First World War
  • Creation of Czechoslovakia
  • Munich Agreement
  • Second World War in Prague
  • AnthropoidOperation
  • The Crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius
