After the “Velvet revolution”, Václav Havel offered to host Radio Free Europe in Prague. And so, it is here now. We, the citizens of Prague who are a little older, still remember how we were glued to our radios each evening to learn what was really happening. And Radio Free Europe, the Voice of America, and Radio Luxembourg were part of the culture which was not supported by the communist regime.

It was a nice change to be able to give to the radio station a new home after it took care of us for such a long time and be able to help the countries still under totalitarian regimes today. And the building housing this station is pretty impressive and worth seeing. If you are part of a bigger group, it is even possible to have a tour of the station – it is free of charge, but it has to be organized ahead of time; just send an e-mail using the form on the website to Evgeniya Konovalova.
