The Tatra Motokov sign on the roof of a housing high-rise on Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin, belongs to auto maker “Tatra”, with headquaters in Koprivnice, Czech Republic – one of the oldest auto brands around. The factories emerged in 1923 after a fusion of the “Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriks-Gesellschaft” with the “Waggonfabrik Ringhoffer AG” of Prague. In earlier days there were many more such advertisements lining this socialist boulevard.
