Praha – The Brothels and the Prostitutes of Old Prague

At the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, the Old Town of Prague was full of both legal and illegal brothels, night clubs, love hotels and other places where prostitution took place. Some of the places disappeared in the so-called Prague Sanitation, but quite a lot of them still exists. These places have their stories – told by the contemporaries and written in literary texts. Authors of the book Prostitutes and Their Houses (Nevěstince a nevěstky) Radim Kopáč and Josef Schwarz will show us some of these places.

Meeting point: Saturday 4 October, 11:30, Haštalské nám.
