Very informative and clear, Marketta brought the period to life. Could have included more information about the Jewish community, but perhaps that's for another tour. It was quite expensive but worth it. (600 crowns each)

This tour is an excellent way to learn about the history of Prague and the Czech Republics journey to how it is today. Pavel, our guide, introduced the tour by putting everything into context in the years before World War Two. We were shown places that you could easily miss just walking around, such as the headquarters of the resistance... More

I highly recommend to take this tour if you are in Prague and interested in the WW2 history. I have learnt a lot thanks to our guide Martin who was very knowledgeable.

We had spent the first day of our trip wandering around Prague enjoying the beautiful old landmarks, but we wanted to understand more about the impact of more recent events such as communism and WW2 on the city and its people. We spotted an advert for this tour on a map of the city and turned up at the specified... More

Altough our guide Martin had some previous bad comments for his strong accent (here on TripAdvisor) we had a wonderful tour and did understand everything. He's a Czech native and does the history tours as a hobby. We really enjoyed the tour, though we were about 30 people on the tour. I'm a history geek from Germany and I know... More

We had an excellent tour around Prague. We were able to explore some of the underground tunnels, visit some memorable locations in the Old Town and finished in the Jewish Quarter. Learning about the role the Czech people played in WWII was an eye opening experience and gave a new perspective to the situation at the time. It was also... More

Love it. It was great very knoledgelbale. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. Pacifico was the tour guide. He knows what he is doing. He takes you to all the places with the best attitude. If you speak Spanish even better. The groups are smaller.

We were amazed and impressed with our young guides knowledge and passion for this historical tour. A wonderful tour from the exact location that Hitler rolled into town to the underground spots of the later Czech Resistance. Very much worth the time if you like history.

My wife and I had a brilliant tour of Prague and Marek's commentary was excellent, he knows the subject perfectly and the various sites were very interesting . The World War Two history had always intrigued me and Marek answered every question about the brave fight put up by the Czech people against the tyranny and evil of the Nazi's.... More

Staying in Josefov

Neighborhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighborhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighborhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
