Walk the places that best testify about the infamous times in the recent history of Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia)
During this tour you will be briefly updated on the overall history of the Czech Republic and, especially, we will focus on the Twentieth Century major historical events such as: the disintegration of the Austrian Empire, Formation of Czechoslovakia, Second World War times followed by the Infamous Communist Military Coup, and the so called "Velvet Revolution" of 1989. This tour is not just a "show" by somebody who heard, from a "second hand" about communism but directly from the one who was born to communism and was truly raised in that political system with all its pluses and minuses, who directly experienced, right here in Prague, the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and much more. So, if you're serious about this part of history, do not miss this tour!
During this tour we will visit all the interesting places within the heart of Prague that pertain to the recent history of the Czech Republic. At the end of this walking tour we visit the Museum of Communism. The tour is concluded in the Wenceslaw Square area in front of the Museum of Communism or back at your hotel, if desired.

Jiri was a fantastic guide - his local (often first-hand) knowledge of the city was amazing, and we really enjoyed learning more about our surroundings with his help. Absolutely worth it.
