Czechoslovakia played a key role in Hitler’s Third Reich and many reminders of this traumatic time lay hidden throughout the city. Join us for a 3-hour walking tour of the buildings and landmarks associated with World War Two as we explore Prague’s infamous past.
On the tour, guests will learn about the rise of Nazi Germany and why Hitler came to power, how the Nazi occupation impacted life in Prague and about the Czech resistance to the Nazi occupation. The tour visits the places where some of the most chilling events in Prague’s long history occurred including where Czechoslovakia’s heroes fought their last battle, where the resistance members lived, and the dreaded Gestapo Headquarters where thousands of people died.
Discover the personal stories of the key players in Operation Anthropoid and imagine what you would do in that situation. The tour will also cover the student resistance to the occupation, the Prague Uprising and the bombing of Prague in 1945. By the end of the tour, guests will have a better understanding of this tragic time period and the role that Prague played in it. The Church of St. Cyril and Methodius will be the final stop on the tour, which is now the memorial to the victims of the Third Reich, and offers guests the chance to contemplate Prague’s tragic past.
