Czechs in London


London is one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities, a true melting pot of peoples from all corners of the Earth. It is also home to a number of Czechs, many of whom left after the 1968 Soviet-led invasion which crushed the Prague Spring. But, as Ian Willoughby found out when he visited the city in March, not all of the Czechs in London are "68ers". Somecesi v londyne young people live there for business reasons, while some older Czechs moved there after - or even before - World War II. They all have an interesting story to tell.
