World War II and Communism

Find out about the dictatorship of Nazism and Communism in Czechoslovakia in 20th century and visit the places of important historical events.

Our guide will meet you at your hotel and together you will walk in the city center. You will visit the important streets, squares, and sites where the events happened. Also your Czech-born guide will tell you how a daily life looked like and what was restricted, prohibited, or what you were supposed to do during Communism.

Visit the crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius church near Dancing house - the place where Czechoslovak paratroopers heroicly lost their lives in reaction to the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in spring 1942. The assassination was on one hand a successful action of the resistance movement but on the other hand it sparked terror to find the agents.

For forty years, between 1948 and the Velvet Revolution of 1989, Prague was affected by the communist period. There are two key political events which had huge impact on the life in Czechoslovakia: the Prague Spring of 1968 when the revival of a more humane socialist process was interrupted by the invading armies of the Warsaw Pact and the critical year 1989: on November 17th began a peaceful, hence the „velvet“, revolution. You can go to the places which played an important part in Czech history, simply where the revolution was happening: Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, Palach Square, National Avenue, Prague Castle.
