46 Wonderful Color Photographs That Capture Everyday Life in Czechoslovakia in the Late 1950s

The years of totalitarian rule in Czechoslovakia, from 1948 to 1989, were dark and dismal days, indeed. After the 1948 coup, Communist ideology permeated citizens’ lives and dominated all aspects of society. Czechoslovakia’s political decisions were dictated by the Soviet Union, and the country continued to rely on the Soviet Union even during the 1980s. Czechoslovakia was part of the Eastern Bloc and a member of the Warsaw Pact and Comecon. These wonderful color photographs were taken in 1958 that show what life was like in Czechoslovakia in the late 1950s.
