Cedar Rapids icon, Sykora Bakery in Czech Village is being rebuilt to incorporate its original design with a few new additions following the June 2008 flood of the Cedar River that flows one block away. The business had been closed for two years while the new owners remodeled the century old building. June's flood sent eight feet of water and mud into the building but spared the destruction of the massive oven located in the back of the building. Other Czech Village businesses; Ernie's, C.J's, Novak's, and the Red Frog have all opened recently signalling the return of some normalcy to the highly visited area. The anticipated re-opening of Sykora's will do much to show that the city's most recognised landmarks are once again open for business. Know that.
