The Velvet Revolution Project is a project of enthusiasts who share a common belief that the legacy of the Velvet revolution has not lost its importance. We have all been influenced by the idea of life of freedom and truth. The Velvet Revolution originated on the streets of Prague and the main players were common people. Therefore, the project is situated on a street and is open for anyone who passes by.
