    Ein sehr informativer Rundgang. Geführt hat uns Caroline. Zuerst einige Informationen und besondere Plätze bezüglich des Kommunismus. Dann per Tram zum Atombunker. Sehr sehr interessant. Bedrückt aber auch. Vorher wäre gut zu wissen, dass es tief unten in den Bunker geht. (Macht Sinn) Über Treppen. Und diese muss man selbstverständlich wieder hoch. Man sollte also unbedingt gut zu Fuß sein. Wenn’s euch gefällt unbedingt an ein Trinkgeld denken :)

    Worth doing!

    A very interesting and informative tour. Mike, our guide, was very knowledgeable explaining the Communist era in Prague and how it is regarded today by the citizens. He took his time, the tour was not rushed and answered any questions we had. We took the tram out to the bunker. The bunker was definitely the highlight. Our twelve year old daughter loved it. Highly recommend this tour.

    Truly a highlight of a wonderful trip to Prague.

    Tour guide 'Brett' was a history major at Charles University and his knowledge of the communist period in Prague and CZ was extensive and shared fluidly and interestingly. Starting with a walking tour new Old Town Square we learned of the heros of rebellion against communism and the powerful leaders during the period from post WW I throu to formation of Czech Republic. A short metro ride and walk took us to the bunker where we learned more as we descended to see exhibits and feel what it might have been like to use the bunker - which, in fact, is still operational and maintained weekly 'just in case'. Highly recommended for your next trip to Prague!
