I apologize for my prolonged absence.

Now without further ado, I present the second article in the Zach Blaue series for The Prague Post. In this piece, Blaue examines two former atomic fallout shelters in Prague. The first is located under Prague Castle and is still incomplete and unused, while the second is underneath Parukářka Hill in Žižkov and acts as a nightclub and performance venue.

Two atomic shelters in particular offer interesting counterpoints, dug on prominent sites on opposite sides of the river and subsequently neglected. In the years since the Velvet Revolution, they have come to terms in strikingly different ways with the growth and change in the surrounding city.
