Free WW2 & Communism Tour
Overview of the tour in Prague
On this tour, we will immerse ourselves in Prague's darkest period of history, which lasted from 1938 to 1989 - the Nazi occupation and the subsequent period of Communism.
Through stories of courage and hope, you will learn about the Holocaust and the fate of the Jewish People in Prague, the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich during Operation Anthropoid, and the Czechoslovak coup d'état, and the rise of Communism.
We will show you the Dancing House where Valentine's Day bombing took place, the street where the Velvet Revolution started, as well as the place where the brave student Jan Palach set himself on fire.
Our groups are limited to 30 people, which is one of the lowest maximum capacities in the city (other companies typically accommodate up to 40 people). We recommend hiring a private guide if this number is too high for your preference.
We are unable to arrange alternate meeting points or assist latecomers in locating the guide, even if they message us via chat. Guides cannot send messages while they are waiting for customers or conducting tours.
