Overview

The 20th century is tied to the wave of Red Terror, which did not miss Czechoslovakia. After the Second World War, the communists easily took power in the country and established a tough rule of law that, in the 1950s, took the lives of thousands of people. The 1960s were freer, but the end of the decade saw the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, which brought tanks and foreign soldiers streaming through the streets of Prague.
You will also hear about the self-immolation of Jan Palach and Jan Zajíc, the following period of Normalization, the fear that permeated the era, and the heroism throughout. During the tour, you'll also get to visit the nuclear bunker once used by the officers of the Warsaw Pact.

This activity includes:

Gestapo prison - Communist Party Headquarters - Jan Palach memorial - Nuclear Bunker - Jan Opletal - Jan Zajíc - Wenceslas Square - Dissidents - Lucerna Palace - Národní třída - Velver Revolution memorial - Secret agencies - Cold War - Political trials - Prague Spring - Soviet Invasion - Velver Revolution - Václav Havel
