A walk with the architect Petr Klíma dedicated to three department stores in Prague from 1960’s and 1970’s.Kotva Department store is a unique work by Mr. and Mrs. Machonin and at the time of its origin it was the biggest store in the countries of the former eastern bloc. The department store Družba projected by Vašek, Klimeš and Růžička is an inconspicuous „house with windows“ which integrated into the context of Wenceslas Square in the 1970’s. The department store Máj (My) is thanks to the quality project made by the architects Eisler, Masák and Rajniš still a living proof of the best from the Czech architecture in the first half of the 1970’s.
