The Communism & Bunker Tour takes 3.5 hours. You would spent 2 hours walking around Prague and seeing important places of recent moments such as 1968 Prague Spring or 1989 Velvet Revolution. Then we have half an hour break in an authentic canteen from 70s where you could taste Kofola, the Czech made Coca Cola. Last hour we spent down in the nuclear shelter from 50s, which brings the paranoia back.
We like dialogue, so the group size is limited up to 10 people (reservation is recommended).
The walking tour starts at the Powder Tower in namesti Republiky, where you will hear the story of how the new Czechoslovakia Republic was formed in 1918. Discover the dark days of Nazi occupation and liberation by the Russian Red Army in 1945.
In the Wenceslasz Square you will learn about the 1960s when the Soviet army crushed the nation's blossoming dreams of democracy in 1968. To learn more about Prague Spring, you could read our blog post here. The tour takes you up to the Velvet Revolution in 1989, signaling the end of this grey period of Cold War history.
