Communist Prague Walking Tour Itinerary

Ever wondered what life was like under Communism in former Czechoslovakia? Now's your chance to find out: explore Prague with an expert local guide revealing the most important sites in its recent history. After meeting up in Old Town Square, in the heart of the city's historic centre, you'll begin your journey through time.

As you walk through the city streets, you'll hear all about the different aspects of life in Communist Prague. Visiting places such as the Communist Party headquarters, the National Theatre and the National Museum, your guide will give you a balanced and unbiased view of the Czech capital's Soviet history. Learn how, despite restricted movement and lack of freedom of speech, there were many things that people liked about living "behind the Iron Curtain".

Discover how Communist rule came to an end in the country following the Prague Spring and the Soviets' subsequent invasion as you reach Wenceslas Square, a city plaza with its origins in the Middle Ages. Standing here, you'll find it hard to imagine the hundreds of thousands of people who gathered here in 1989 to protest the Soviet regime in what came to be known as the Velvet Revolution.

Your route will bring you to a memorial dedicated to Václav Havel, the first president of the Czech Republic, where your guide will explain how the people of Prague feel about their Communist history, memories that are still fresh in the minds of many. The tour will come to an end near the National Theatre.
