"The Neon Museum in Praga is a special gem: it displays colorful neon signs that once adorned the shop facades of Warsaw - a communist campaign to make the city appear modern, for which well-known artists were hired. As the economic crisis worsened and the government declared martial law in 1981, the expensive advertising was switched off. Her decline began. A dark, cheerless city was now in the interest of the PVAP - they wanted to keep the protesting population off the streets. The signs tell a little history of Polish socialism. The small museum is currently looking for a new location in Warsaw."
