    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and group of 15 or fewer in central Prague. Then, set out to uncover one of the city’s darkest chapters — the Nazi occupation of WWII.

    Czechoslovakia was pivotal to the war and Nazi Germany’s strategic aims. As you walk and talk, see sites and buildings associated with the 1939-1945 occupation, learning how and why it happened and about daily life under Nazi control.

    Pause at squares that presided over parades and protests, and see where Czech resistance fighters hid and plotted against the occupiers. Hear about the brave individuals who risked their lives to help Prague’s vulnerable, and learn about a key event: the assassination of Nazi security head, Reinhard Heydrich, in 1942.

    Discover how paratroopers were flown in to kill the ‘Butcher of Prague,’ and the details of the daring assignment, codenamed ‘Operation Anthropoid.’

    Plus, follow in the footsteps of the freedom fighters of the 1945 Prague Uprising: learning about the barricades and subterfuge that helped bring the occupation to an end.

    Visit St. Cyril and Methodius Church, a place that hangs heavy with the Nazi response to Heydrich’s assassination. See the exhibitions and photos on display.

    Your tour concludes in central Prague.

    Jakob was an excellent tour guide. He gave us so much good information on the war as it pertained to Czechia as well as the Anthropoid mission. I loved it!! The tour was three hours; the hardest part for me was the standing, not the walking. I recommended this tour to several

    Petra was wonderful. She really put history and everything into perspective during the 1930's and mid 40's during the Nazi take over. The 3 hour tour was very informative and she showed us a lot of important history sites that we had already walked by and did not take note.

    Dear Christine, thank you for your nice review! We are happy that you have enjoyed the tour and that you have learned something new along the way. We are sorry to hear that you didn't get to spend much time at the crypt, the guides are always trying to be there at least half an hour before its closing time, so the guests have plenty of time to look around. As for the Gestapo headquarters, we weren't aware of the film crew over there, so we couldn't have informed you in advance. Nevertheless, we hope that you had a great time on the tour. Kind regards, Prague Trips & Tickets Team
