Prague Communism and Nuclear Bunker Tour focuses on the communist era.
The tour is conducted in English.
The price includes English-speaking guide and an exclusive tour of a nuclear bunker.
During the tour, the guide will tell you about the history of the country from 1948 to the Velvet Revolution in 1989, with all the hardships of the totalitarian regime. You’ll learn about the politics of intimidation and terror, and the fate of political prisoners, dissidents, refugees and those who considered leaving the country…
The guided tour will take you to sites where tragic events occurred but which tourists often miss. You’ll see where the world’s largest statue of Stalin stood, the StB (Secret Police) Headquarters, and the spot where student Jan Palach set fire to himself in 1969 in protest against the Soviet invasion. You’ll also walk through Wenceslas Square and Národní třída, sites connected with the most important milestones in Czechoslovak history in the second half of the 20th century, such as the end of the Prague Spring and the subsequent protests against the Soviet occupation. These addresses are also the sites of the 1989 demonstrations leading to the Velvet Revolution and thus the end of communism.
The tour includes a visit to an original 1950s bunker, giving the visitor a real sense of the paranoia of the political elites of that time. Built as protection against a possible nuclear attack by “imperialists”, the bunker consisted of 4 underground floors, was 16 metres long and was the largest of its kind in the capital, housing 5,000.
