You will see the ‘real Prague’ behind the glitz and glamour on this walking tour. We walk through the streets of the New Town and walk up Wenceslas Square, which witnessed the major historical moments over the last century, including the Soviet occupation in 1968 or the Velvet Revolution in November 1989.
We take a break for beer, kofola or a snack in an authentic working-class canteen. Visiting a nuclear bunker from the 50s will round off your communist adventure in Prague. You will also see historical photos of the events, people, buildings and statues, many of them now destroyed.
