Communist Prague Walking Tour

  • 9 reviews | 209 travellers
    Highly recommended tour! Our guide, Gianfranco, told us many important historical facts and as many anecdotes, showing us symbolic and particular places, which without him we probably would never have seen because they were never suggested in the guides (for example the central post office building which is wonderful ). Gianfranco is passionate about history and this can be seen above all in the expository clarity, never heavy but always precise and engaging.

Communist Prague Walking Tour 

At the indicated time, we'll meet at the Theater of States (Stavovské Divadlo). Then, we'll begin our tour in search of the remnants of Communist Prague, one of the darkest periods in the Czech capital.

From Wenceslas Square, we'll set out to discover the landmarks of the dictatorship and the monuments dedicated to those who fought against this party, such as the young Jan Palach and the heroic Milada Horáková. We'll also remember the extremely tense moments that characterized the Cold War thanks to an exclusive visit to a bunker built in Wenceslas Square, below the Jalta Hotel.

The bunker, located 20 meters deep, was initially designed as a shelter in case of attack by NATO forces, only to be converted in the 1960s into an important espionage center.

Finally, after a 2.5-hour itinerary exploring the most emblematic buildings of communist Prague, we'll say our goodbyes.

Visit a Nuclear Bunker

The tour includes a visit to the nuclear bunker in Wenceslas Square. This underground defensive construction is located 65 feet (20 meters) below the Hotel Jalta. It now houses the Cold War Museum, where visitors can see the telecommunications systems and uniforms of the time.

Private Tour

If you want to take this tour privately, you can book a private tour. Private tours can be conducted in a wide time slot and on any day of the week.
