Very interesting tour. I would highly recommended it to anyone wanting to learn more about communism during and after WW II. The tour of the bunker was the highlight.
Tour guide 'Brett' was a history major at Charles University and his knowledge of the communist period in Prague and CZ was extensive and shared fluidly and interestingly. Starting with a walking tour new Old Town Square we learned of the heros of rebellion against communism and the powerful leaders during the period from post WW I throu to formation of Czech Republic. A short metro ride and walk took us to the bunker where we learned more as we descended to see exhibits and feel what it might have been like to use the bunker - which, in fact, is still operational and maintained weekly 'just in case'. Highly recommended for your next trip to Prague!
Our guide Honza took us on an entertaining and informative tour through the history and alongside important buildings of the communist times in Prague. The bunker at the end of the tour was impressive.
Really like it to learn more about communism, good relaxed guidance and the visit to the bunker was a a good addition to the tour! Tip:it might be nice to combine this with a visit to the TV tower which is in the same area.
