This is a very interesting and informative tour of the Soviet crisis staff shelter (nuclear bunker) beneath the Jalta Hotel. Our tour guide, David, was outstanding. He told us not only about the shelter but also the events around the Soviet’s rule of Czechoslovakia.

Brilliant tour, Alexandra our tour guide was great. This is really interesting and informative, with some interactivity to make it fun. You can wear uniforms, hold guns and have a go on the air filtration system and phone tapping devices. Highly recommend.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

Quite a bit of stairs. It’s all in a bunker way below the hotel. First section you have an elevator but then I’d say at least 20 steps further down.
