  1. It was actually tricky to get a shot, as there is a huge excavation in front of the mural. Basically, it goes through various stages of Czech history, starting with a bunch of peasants standing around a tree cutting (The Czech language was the domain of largely illiterate peasants for many hundreds of years of Germanic rule), through revolution, industry and progress, then the Czech people arm in arm around the mighty tree grown from the cutting. Above that, in front of a golden sun are figures dressed as Cosmonauts.

    There are several other large abstract mosaics around Usti. There must have been an artist of stature working in the medium, as they have a similar feel.
