    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and begin your communism and bunker walking tour of Prague at the historic Powder Tower on Namesti Republiky, the meeting point of the city’s Old and New Towns. Listen to your guide’s commentary as you set out to explore the Old Town and piece together the key events of the country’s history. Hear about the formation of the Czechoslovakia Republic in 1918, the dark days of Nazi occupation and the liberation by the Russian Red Army in 1945.

    Admire the monumental buildings of the Old Town Square and stand on the spot where Communist party leaders celebrated their victory in 1948. Pass historic points of interest like the Kotva shopping mall and the former headquarters of the secret police on Bartolomejska Street. Walk along Narodni Street, where students were massacred by state police on 17th of November 1989, and hear about the Prague Spring as you stand on Wenceslas Square, when the Soviet army crushed the nation's blossoming dreams of democracy in 1968.

    Stop for refreshments at a local worker’s canteen, where you’ll have chance to sip a beer or sample popular Czech soda, kofola (own expense). Finally, enjoy the rare opportunity to explore inside a real nuclear bunker, dating from the 1950s.

    As an American I grew up with a view of ‘Eastern Block’ countries that came from what I saw in the media, learned in school, etc. To hear about when Czech was communist from someone who lived here during that time was really interesting. Not only informative the tour was fun! I

    Hello, we receive many guests from the "west" who are keen to learn how about the life behind the Iron Curtain. Our mission is to pull that curtain up and educate people about the recent history of former Czechoslovakia and also how the average person lived and acted during the Communist Era. However, we speak a lot about politics, persecutions, hope for better future and life in general, we often combine the topics with humour and some Czech jokes. I am very happy that you've enjoyed the tour and left us such a great review. Thank you. Kind regards, Klara Hajkova, the founder.
