Discover what it was like to live under communism for 40 years in Prague on this informative Live Virtual Tour. From 1948 through 1989, the citizens of the Czech Republic (formerly Czechoslovakia) went through a bleak period under communist rule. Walk through the New Town of Prague where the most important events that shaped the history of Czechoslovakia between the years 1948 - 1989 took place. Hear the stories about the communist coup d’état in 1948, the tough repressions in the 50s, and the Prague spring which brought hope that things could change, only for it to be crushed by the Soviet invasion in August 1968. Learn how the system collapsed in 1989 as your tour guide shows you the Wenceslas Square where many protests against the regime took place. See the Narodni street where the 1989 Velvet revolution started, and admire the architecture from the communist period and tell many stories about the heroes and the villains of this chapter of our history. On Communist Prague Tour, you'll learn many stories about the heroes and the villains of this chapter of Prague's history. This tour allows you to experience first-hand what life was like back then. When the Iron Curtain fell and Czechoslovakia was dissolved, most of the country's communist paraphernalia was erased from everyday life. Rediscover what it was like to live under communism for 40 years in Prague.

Thank you for sharing this interesting tour! It's awesome to learn about my family heritage! Always wanted to visit this area & had a friend move over there about 30 yrs ago; He suggested I join him. It's amazing to think what it was like for my grandfather's parents in Czechoslovakia & for my friend in the Czech Republic; Prague is a beautiful city! Your topic on communism makes me appreciate what my family & country have provided for me in the USA.
