Long Description:

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) is an international broadcast organization that provides news, information, and analysis to countries in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. RFE/RL is supervised by the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a bipartisan federal agency overseeing all US international broadcasting services. It is funded by the U.S. Congress. RFE/RL broadcasts in 28 languages to 20 countries including Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Belarus, and Iraq).

(from "wikipedia")


After end of Cold War and fall of communist regimes in Central Europe RFE/RL accepted the invitation of Czech President Vaclav Havel and Prime Minister Vaclav Klaus and relocated its broadcasting center to the former Czechoslovak parliament building in Prague in 1995. For over 13 years, RFE/RL called this former communist headquarters its home, until 2009, when RFE/RL relocated to a custom built, state-of-the-art building just outside the city center - and this new building is "target" of this waymark...
