From underground bunkers to “Fire Mountain”: how Prague’s poorest have lived over the centuries

How did the working poor live in Prague during the Austro-Hungarian Empire?

And what about the homeless of today? Two separate yet complementary
exhibitions now at the City of Prague Museum take a novel approach to
presenting the capital’s often forgotten, overlooked or unknown history
of poverty and homelessness.
