National Museum

At the top of Wenceslas Square, in Prague, is the Czech National Museum. I haven't had the chance to actually go inside of it yet but maybe on my next visit in July.

The building is quite imposing. In fact, Russian soldiers actually shot at it during the 1968 Soviet-led invasion.

I've heard two different stories as to why so I don't know for sure.

One story is that the Russians thought it was the Czech Parliament.

The other version I heard was that it was believed to be the home of the Czech radio station which had been broadcasting anti-Russian programming.
