What is a Trabant Car? This is a question that comes from visitors who are from the "Western part of Europe"...well, Trabant or Trabi is the best thing invented during the communist era ;)! Trabant is a 2 stroke plastic car with big history in Prague, despite it was invented in Eastern Germany, even the name Trabant has a meaning and reason!
