Description

Following a brief introduction to Prague’s history at Wenceslas Square, we’ll dive into little backstreets and passages known only by the locals.

We’ll then cross the Čechův Bridge and walk to Letná Hill – a great chill-out spot adored by locals. Why is it so popular? You’ll understand as soon as we get there! Make sure your camera battery is fully charged – the views from the top are priceless.
After taking a short walk through the Royal Gardens, we’ll arrive at Prague Castle to discover its 1000-year-long history and hear stories of influential emperors who governed the empire from within its walls. As a bonus, we’ll take a quick peek at St. Vitus Cathedral.
At this point we assume everyone will be hungry and thirsty, so we’ll refuel with delicious Czech cuisine and beer at the old Strahov Monastery in the city centre. When was the last time you drank blessed beer?
Just a few steps from the Monastery is the amazing Petřín Lookout Tower, offering outstanding views of the city. Zigzagging down the hill, we’ll venture into the Lesser Town to visit the St. Nicholas Church – the greatest baroque church in Prague, as well as the John Lennon Wall.

Interested in modern history of Prague during World War II and communism?

Do the names Oskar Fleischer, Jan Palach and Klement Gottwald ring a bell? Do you know what life was like in Czechoslovakia during the 50 years of a totalitarian regime? And why one of the most interesting Jewish museums is located in Prague? This tour is designed to give a full understanding and bring you closer to the events under the rule of a dictatorial regime, which had ruled our country for over 50 years.

Together we explore the most important places connected with WWII and communist regime in our country. At first we’re going to visit memorial plaque on Národní street, talking about students who were brutally stopped by communist police. After a short walk we move to a museum dedicated to brave Czech paratroopers, who successfully assassinated Reinhard Heydrich – a butcher of Prague, but finally died in a fight against 700 Germans. The next stop is a Wenceslas square, a place where a lot of demonstrations against communist totalitarian regime took a place. You’ll be moved by stories of people who stood up against oppressions and were ready to put their lives for a hope of possible change.

We also take a look on a former headquarters of Gestapo in Prague, which was a place people feared the most. Once you got in, you never returned. From there we walk directly to the Old Town Square and Jewish quarter, where several other stories of World War II will be mentioned. And you will get an answer why is it possible that we still have Jewish sights in a city, which was occupied from the very beginning of the war.
