About
Did you ever wonder why Prague was not heavily bombed such as the other European cities? Together with your local guide you’ll uncover the hidden details in the streets and you will learn about heroic deeds and tragic losses of the Czech nation, reveal the disturbing past of the Czech capital during WW2! At first you will learn how Czechoslovakia Republic was established in 1918. We will stroll the streets of the Old Town, passing houses which struggled during the Prague Uprising in May 1945, some of them badly destroyed. We'll visit the Jewish Quarter and we go inside former Jewish primary school which operated till 1942. We'll stop by the memorial of Jewish victims of Nazi terror, many of them experienced the cruelty inside the concentration camp Theresienstadt Ghetto. Finally, you will take a tram to see a crypt where the Czech resistance was hiding after the assassination of the second most important Nazi Reinhard Heydrich.

Excellent tour of Prague's WW2 history
Dec 2019
The two of us were the only people on the tour this day which made for a terrific personalised experience. Most people were wandering around the heaving christmas markets! Clara was an excellent tour guide, clearly explaining the background to events that took place in Prague and the wider country during WW2

Beginning at the powder tower, we visited a number of key sites, then heading for St Wenceslas Square and then onto St Cyril's church. Clara kept us engaged and interested throughout and explained what could be a dry subject in a clear and engaging way

Having done a more expensive but disappointing WW2 tour on a previous visit to Prague, we were relieved that this tour was far more informative and enjoyable. Clara had many fascinating stories to tell. Highly recommended if you are visiting this wonderful city

Hello, thank you for your time writing such a good feedback for my WW2 Tour, we did together last week. I put this walk together according to my deep interest in recent history and it makes me happy that you appreciated this topic more than rushing around the Christmas markets. Thank you for highlighting that we covered the key places (Powder Tower, Republic Square, Wenceslas Square, a crypt of the church of Sts Constant and Method) and that you've learnt much more than on your previous visit... I wish you happy holidays and all the best in 2020. Kind regards, Klara Hajkova, founder & guide

Interesting tour
Nov 2019
We met our WW2 guide Clara at the Powder Gate, our group had only two other guests, so it was easy to ask Clara any questions on our tour. Clara was full of many interesting and fascinating facts about World War 2, taking us to key locations, such as the Jewish Quarter, the Old Town, Wenceslas Square and where Czech soldiers were hiding out in the crypt of St Cyril after assassinating Reinhard Heydrich, the leader of the SS in Prague.
The tour was very moving and left us reflecting on the bravery of the ordinary Czech people that rose up against the Nazi occupation of Prague.
We would not hesitate in booking another tour with Prague Extravaganza.
Many thanks
