  • Memorial Vojna u Příbrami Lesetice is originally a POW camp for German prisoners of war, situated between the former uranium-Bay, served in the period 1949-1951 as a forced labour camp, and subsequently in 1961 as the prison facilities for political opponent of the Communist regime. Very nice lady tour guide met us at the sight of the observation tower with the history of this place and describe what we see while exploring the area. In addition to the relatively new exhibit-part of the Berlin wall, it is possible to visit the individual objects to the visitor's renovated to create an image of the premises in which the prisoners lived. I'm afraid, however, that reconstruction of the barracks and dungeons is performed so well that the visitor who does not know what the terms actually reigned here, might think that here the prisoners would spend nice moments in a pleasant atmosphere. White sheets on the bunks and new tables in the cimrách impression of authenticity. This is likely due to the fact that the area is also used to filmmakers. In any case, but a visit to the monument, I recommend for recent dark period reminder of our Republic.
