Who Is Karel Gott?!

If you're doing business in Czechia, it is always helpful and courteous to know the history and culture of your Czech associates. A fun way to learn about ordinary life in Prague during the "Normalization" (70s and 80s) is to visit the impressive exhibition: Retro 70s and 80s, at the Dancing House Gallery. It features three floors of "communist culture, leisure, work, housing, technology, design and architecture." One entertaining display is of popular Czech singer Karel Gott's albums covers, plus outfits he wore on TV. (He was the perfect entertainer to take my parents to see in the 1990s.) The walls of the exhibition have texts in both Czech and English.
