A journey through old and new Prague…
From 1948 to 1989, the Czech Republic (formerly Czechoslovakia) experienced a bleak period under communism rule. Although the regime ended over 30 years ago, there are still architectural and cultural reminders of this time that still exist in Prague today.
This unique cultural tour takes you back in time to the Communist era in Prague through food, storytelling and historical site visits. Whether you’re a history buff, adventurer or just interested in exploring the city beyond the famous landmarks, this is your chance to see a side of Prague that most tourists miss.
Your local guide will lead you to significant spots in the Old and New Towns where you can gain a real understanding of daily life in Prague when it was behind the Iron Curtain. You’ll visit the site of the famous Velvet Revolution – where notable demonstrations were held against the ruling Communist Party. You’ll pass old landmarks that still hold memories from this era, and even stop for a beer inside the largest communist building in the centre of the city.
Along the way you’ll also discover a modern food culture that has been influenced by this time in history. Visit a classic diner known for its traditional bites; try one of the country’s favourite fast-food snacks; and sit down to eat at a simple canteen-style restaurant where the working-class still go to enjoy traditional lunches.
