Did you ever wonder why Prague was not heavily bombed such as the other European cities? Together with your local guide you’ll uncover the hidden details in the streets and you will learn about heroic deeds and tragic losses of the Czech nation, reveal the disturbing past of the Czech capital during WW2! At first you will learn how Czechoslovakia Republic was established in 1918. We will stroll the streets of the Old Town, passing houses which struggled during the Prague Uprising in May 1945, some of them badly destroyed. We'll visit the Jewish Quarter and we go inside former Jewish primary school which operated till 1942. We'll stop by the memorial of Jewish victims of Nazi terror, many of them experienced the cruelty inside the concentration camp Theresienstadt Ghetto. Finally, you will take a tram to see a crypt where the Czech resistance was hiding after the assassination of the second most important Nazi Reinhard Heydrich.

Response from KlaraExtravaganza, Owner at World War II Tour
Responded 19 Dec 2019
Hello, thank you for your time writing such a good feedback for my WW2 Tour, we did together last week. I put this walk together according to my deep interest in recent history and it makes me happy that you appreciated this topic more than rushing around the Christmas markets. Thank you for highlighting that we covered the key places (Powder Tower, Republic Square, Wenceslas Square, a crypt of the church of Sts Constant and Method) and that you've learnt much more than on your previous visit... I wish you happy holidays and all the best in 2020. Kind regards, Klara Hajkova, founder & guide
