Don,
I found two pages, one in English and the other in Czech (with descriptions of each picture). The one in Czech is better and if you have Google translator, so I recommend this.

Yes, it's Brno, the old center. I have lived all the time in the western suburbs, thirty years in the part called Komín and now forty years in Bystrc. For those not familiar, Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic with 400 000 inhabitants.

The dragon and the wagon wheel are just rumors:
Sometime many years ago a dragon plagued the city, a hefty junior came and killed the dragon. Since then, the dragon has been hanging in the town hall. But in my lifetime it is the second or third crocodile. No, crocodiles don't live here. I don't know where they're taking them.
In a town forty miles from Brno, the wheelwright got up early in the morning, made the bike, and rolled it (on foot) to Brno by evening .

Thanks MrBig.



By the titles of epic and reciprocity, I was imagining something like the Albanian genocide in Turkey. I couldn't remember any historical reference to something similar in Slavic territories or countries except perhaps Bosnia.

Isn't Brno home of the Cz factory?
Some of the best bolt actions ever made.

There were three large state engineering factories in Brno, which, after privatization in 1989, significantly reduced their activities. They were:
Zbrojovka Brno - between the World Wars production of infantry weapons - rifles, light machine guns, pistols, after 1945 production of Zetor tractors, sports rifles, typewriters, tool shop, etc.
ZKL - production of rolling bearings and tractors - today
Královopolská strojírna Brno - cranes and production equipment for the chemical industry (oil pipelines, etc.)
As far as I know, none of them had a special production of screws, it was in other state factories in the country.
