Return Details

Resslova 9a, 120 00 Praha 2-Nové Město, Czechia

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.
