Full description
Start your 2.5-hour guided walking tour in Prague's Old Town square. Explore the New Town, visiting some of the most historically significant sites of Prague's Communist history.

Learn about life behind the Iron Curtain at the National Museum and former Communist Party headquarters. Your tour guide will tell you in a balanced, unbiased way, about the elements of life that were oppressive during this period, such as the freedom of movement and speech. Listen to stories about the lives and experiences of local people during this historically important period and understand how it has affected the current attitudes of Czechs and their way of life.

Marvel at the architectural remnants of former Czechoslovakia, while you learn about the liberalization efforts during the Prague Spring and Russian invasion. Finish your tour by listening to how Czech people feel nowadays about their communist history and why occasions like the International Women's day can be subject of tenseness.
