It's easy to forget the history of Prague when you look around at all the Starbucks, KFC, and Hard Rock Cafe outlets, but this subtle, easy-to-miss memorial to Jan Palach, who set himself on fire here in 1969 is an opportunity to remember. It was covered with flowers and candles when I went to see it, and it's right by the main road, so any reflection is accompanied by the sound of heavy traffic. Does that make it more or less poignant? It depends how philosophical you are, perhaps.
