Tour description

On this tour we are going to enter the new city of Prague , where the most dramatic and emblematic episodes of Naxism and Communism took place in Czechoslovakia during the 20th century. We will also find monuments of modern art such as The Dancing House or the Rotating Kafka Head.

SMALL GROUPS WITH FAMILY TREATMENT AND WITHOUT LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE


Through Wenceslas Square, the heart of the new city, the Nazi troops paraded superbly in 1939 , the famous Soviet T-34 tanks circulated in 1945.

The new town is the nerve center of the Czech capital. Its streets were leading and privileged witnesses of the Prague Spring of 1968 and the Velvet Revolution of 1989, the entire history of Czechoslovakia (1918-1993) was captured in the streets and corners of the youngest city in the historic center of Prague.

We will learn in depth all the details of the impressive Operation Anthropoid , which sought to end the life of the butcher of Prague, the Nazi SS, Reinhard Heydrich in 1942.

You will also know how the communists managed, after the Second World War, to take complete power in Czechoslovakia and establish a dictatorship of more than 40 years (1948-1989).

On this tour you will also be able to see avant-garde artistic installations, historical and contemporary architecture. (Brutalism, Deconstructivism) and as always we will give you a series of suggestions of convenient places to enjoy the best food and beer in the country.

If you are a lover of 20th century history, world wars, the Cold War and the bipolar world , this is the tour that is tailored for you.

Tanto si te gusta la historia como que no, es obligado a realizar este tour. Sorprende la cantidad de cosas que aprendes y ayuda mucho a empatizar con los checos, si además te toca de guia a Fernando vais a disfrutar, se nota que le encanta y así lo transmite.
