I am thinking about a trip to Prague in December, and I want to take photos of socialist era architecture or monuments if possible. For example war memorials, shopping centres, tower blocks, or any other unusual buildings from the years up to 1989. Also if there are any large estates (in Slovak the word is sidlisko) I would like to try and get some photos there as well. So if anyone knows about this, I would be very grateful for any information or links to photos or locations on the net.
Also, if anyone knows of any hotel from that period (preferably cheap and not reconstructed), and any good pubs (nothing posh just good beer, food and normal people), that would also be great. I was looking at the Hotel Praha, it looks great and is quite near Strahov stadium, I wonder if anyone has stayed there?
I did live in Bratislava for 3 years and I am thinking of perhaps moving to Prague in the future to live, so I'm hoping that this will be a really good trip.
