This one guy, Jan Palach, burned himself in the 60s in the middle of Wenceslas Square in protest and every year they commemorated his death with a festival day in the square until the end of communism. We saw pieces of the Berlin Wall and a lot of other interesting memorabilia from that era. It's crazy ...
