You get a good impression of the period after the second war up to and including the cold war and how the Czechs experienced it. This picture is just a bit different from what we mainly have in the west about the east. Very educational under the guidance of an enthusiastic guide with a lot of humor!

This was a truly interesting & important tour. Scary to hear the stories about Communism times... and the fear of nuclear war. Feels a bit like some of those fears are returning. I really loved the guide's passion on this topic. I have also written a blog article about the visit, here:

The best part of this tour is the guide who was so fun and knowledgeable.. would have liked a bit more on the history and a little less on the actual nuclear bunker which was just ok... The tour needs to reduce the time in the bunker and increase the communism history content but we had a very enjoyable afternoon...
