Not only will you discover how the average Czech lived, worked and played under communism, but you will also hear stories and anecdotes from your local guide, who will bring the old days back to life! You will also see historical photos of the events, people, buildings and statues, many of them now destroyed. We spend 2 hours walking around Prague, seeing iconic places of recent history such as the Old Town Square, Vaclavske Square, Narodni street. Then we enjoy 30-mins break for a lunch or Kofola drink in an authentic canteen from 70s. Finally we visit a Nuclear shelter, which evoke the paranoia of the 1950's. The bunker admission fee 130 CZK (5 EUR) is included in the price. We like dialogue, so the group size is limited up to 15 people. Look for the guide holding a blue umbrella with a sign "Prague Extravaganza Free Tour".
