A map of Prague, 1987

Map of Prague, 1987

In 1987, when this map was printed, many streets and squares in Prague still bore names favored by the Communist regime. Don’t use it to navigate the city today, or you’ll get lost! Click the image to enlarge it.

If this image were included in an extra-illustrated binding of the novel Necessary Errors, it would follow page 166. Or it might be the endpapers. (For an explanation of extra-illustration, click here.)

One thought on “A map of Prague, 1987”

  1. Most of the streets really still bear the same name, it’s only the regime-ideology-influenced ones that are gone. It is interesting to see them today on your map, and I think most of people of Prague would not even know what you talk about if you asked them directions…

    Cannot wait to start reading the book. Cheers!
