Army museum Žižkov in Prague

The Army museum in Prague is a perfect destination for all history and army lovers. Even people not that interested in the periods of the two World wars might get emotionally attached to individual stories of people in concentration camps. The museum is divided in sections of different themes: holocaust, Nazi terror, soldiers in tranches facing each other etc.

The Army museum Žižkov is located at the base of the Vitkov hill. On top of this hill there is a National Monument honoring the thumb of the Unknown Soldier. The Army Museum of Prague is organized in three sections: the period of the First World War (1914-1918), the second part is dedicated to the period between the two world wars and the third period dedicated to the Second World War.
This enormous museum displays objects such as: weapons, uniforms, personal objects of soldiers, clothes of prisoners etc. Some of the displays are so realistic that will make you shiver in front of the horrors and destruction that any war causes. The museum has a unique location, just beneath the colossal National Monument located in a huge building of typical architectural style for the communist era.
