About this activity
Take a look at Prague’s WWII history and come to a better understanding of how the major events of WWII affected the Czech capital. Hear all the local stories about Reinhard Heydrich and visit must-see spots significant to Prague’s wartime history. Swap Prague’s Medieval history for its WWII past. Explore places with an important significance for the country’s wartime history and hear the stories about ‘The Butcher of Prague’, Reinhard Heydrich. Start your private tour at the Dancing house, one of the few buildings in Prague with a modern architecture style. The building is set on a property with a great historical significance and your local host will tell you everything about it. Head down to Cyril and Methodius Cathedral, where you’ll visit its famous crypt. The place is known for its dramatic story: the assassins of Heydrich were hidden here but afterward, the Nazis discovered the place and execute them. Hear all the interesting facts about Heydrich’s assassination, and how people resisted the Nazi occupation. Take the tram to your next stop and get more local insights from your private guide. The next stop is Petschek Palace, the headquarters of Gestapo. The neoclassicist building was the place where many interrogations and tortures took place during WWII. Stroll through the Old Town streets and pass by the statue of the kissing soldiers, which symbolizes the "liberation" of Czechoslovakia by the Red Army. Enter Prague’s Main station and be amazed by its Art Nouveau architecture. The place is full of history and hosts a monument in memorial of Sir Nicholas Winton, a British man who organized a rescue of Jewish children from Czechoslovakia. Hear the tales of Winton’s heroism and the monument called the Farewell Memorial. Cap off your private tour with a hidden place only known by a few locals. Take a short ride by tram and hop off in a picturesque neighborhood. Discover a secret birth center run by the Gestapo, where women from concentration camps used to give birth.
