Communism and Bunker Walking Tour in Prague
US$ 25.46
Overview
Step back in time and discover the history and hardships of life in the former Czechoslovakia on this 3.5-hour walking tour of Prague. Follow your guide to landmarks like the Powder Tower, the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square as you hear about the Nazi occupation and communist-era Czechoslovakia, and learn about key events like the Velvet Revolution and the Prague Spring. Finally, enjoy a rare chance to visit an authentic 1950s nuclear bunker. This small-group tour is limited to 10 people, ensuring a personalized experience.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and begin your communism and bunker walking tour of Prague at the historic Powder Tower on Namesti Republiky, the meeting point of the city’s Old and New Towns. Listen to your guide’s commentary as you set out to explore the Old Town and piece together the key events of the country’s history. Hear about the formation of the Czechoslovakia Republic in 1918, the dark days of Nazi occupation and the liberation by the Russian Red Army in 1945.

Admire the monumental buildings of the Old Town Square and stand on the spot where Communist party leaders celebrated their victory in 1948. Pass historic points of interest like the Kotva shopping mall and the former headquarters of the secret police on Bartolomejska Street. Walk along Narodni Street, where students were massacred by state police on 17th of November 1989, and hear about the Prague Spring as you stand on Wenceslas Square, when the Soviet army crushed the nation's blossoming dreams of democracy in 1968.

Stop for refreshments at a local worker’s canteen, where you’ll have chance to sip a beer or sample popular Czech soda, kofola (own expense). Finally, enjoy the rare opportunity to explore inside a real nuclear bunker, dating from the 1950s.
