Last week on my travels in Europe I came across this impressive building, Czechoslovak Legions' Bank, in Na Porici St. Prague, near the Old Sq, built 1921-1923, with money brought back from Russia at the end of the war. It is a commemoration to their efforts; a little internet research gave me the story. Those who might like to read: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A4241062

This was of course the creation of the new Czechoslovakia.

I hadn't been to Prague for many years; the city is well worth the visit..
