Lidice: Private Tour from Prague

1. Lidice: Private Tour from Prague

From Prague, you will be driven to Lidice, a former village that was completely decimated by the Nazis in response to the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, a high-ranking Nazi officer who organized the conference for the final solution, or the elimination of European Jews. You will walk through the grounds of the burned village, find the foundation stones of some buildings, and pause at the statue of the children of Lidice who were sent to concentration camps.  On return to Prague, you will visit the crypt at St Cyril and St Methodius where the Czech and Slovak soldiers lost their lives. It is a place of piety and therefore, a dress code applies. The first part is an exhibition about the historical development in Czechoslovakia from 1938 to 1942, which includes pictures and items which were used by the paratroopers. The second part is the actual crypt where the soldiers were hiding. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to walk around the church.

Prague: Lidice Memorial and Glassworks Day Trip with Lunch

2. Prague: Lidice Memorial and Glassworks Day Trip with Lunch

Your exciting trip starts in Prague in the morning hours. Following approximately 45 minutes of travel, arrive to the central Bohemian village of Lidice. During World War II and the Nazi occupation, this village became a world-famous symbol of the suffering of civilians and the monstrosity of the fascist regime. Together with the French village of Oradour-Sur-Glane, Lidice became one of only two villages completely destroyed in the hinterland during the war. In June 1942, Adolf Hitler ordered the destruction of Lidice as retribution against the alleged help provided by the village's people during the assassination of a high-ranking man in Nazi Germany: SS General Reinhard Heydrich, Imperial SD Commander and Deputy Reich Protector in the occupied Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. After your visit to the Lidice museum, the memorial, and the sculpture dedicated to the murdered children of Lidice, travel to the town of Kladno. Once there, a food-tasting lunch is ready for you at a famous local restaurant with a very long history. Taste local specialties and a famous Czech main dish, as well as Czech beer or wine and non-alcoholic drinks. After lunch, travel for about 30 minutes to one of the most famous Czech glassworks, established in 1846. This glass factory is unique for its production of pink and black crystal glass, and its products can also be found in the Buckingham Palace of the British Queen. Tour the factory from start to finish, with the opportunity to admire famous Czech glassblowers and glass grinders using skills which have been passed down for many generations. Following the excursion there is the possibility to visit the factory shop located in the factory, where you can buy crystal glass products at discounted outlet prices. At the conclusion of your experience, your expected return to Prague is at around 4:00PM.
