Què farem?

On this very impacting tour we'll immerse in the World War II occupied Prague. In just one morning we'll visit the crucial places that are related to the period of Nazi occupation, Czech resistance and the Operation Anthropoid.
After we meet in the city center we talk about the begginning of the occupation and life in Prague during the war. Once we've seen former Gestapo headquarters we'll get to the Curve: the place where one of the most important acts of resistance during WWII occurred when on May 27th 1942 two Czechoslovak soldiers attacked a prominent Nazi and one of the darkest figures of Nazi elite, Reinhard Heydrich.
Then we continue to the church of Saints Cyril and Methodius; the hiding place of the soldiers in the weeks following the assassination and also the place of the battle of 18th of June '42. We visit the crypt under the church, nowadays a memorial dedicated to Czechoslovak soldiers who died there in a hopeless situation, heavily outnumbered.
For the final part we leave the city as we go to Lidice. The village that was burned down and according to Nazi plan was supposed to disappear forever. As we walk accross former village territory you will learn about Lidice inhabitants and the very sad events of that June 1942 morning.

During the course of the tour we also cover some other major WWII events and visit several place related to the resistance members.

I have been leading small-group guided tours for more than five years in Prague and Czechia (my main tours of interest are Terezin WWII Jewish Ghetto, 20th century Prague, Dresden, Český Krumlov).
I put special emphasis on 20th century and World War II history and my tours are small-group, usually no more than six to eight people which gives us enough time for questions and dialogue as well. Dialogue, sharing the knowledge and friendly atmosphere on the tour are my guidelines, my way of doing the experience. I love traveling and I have lived in several countries so I put myself in travellers' shoes pretty easily. I am certified Prague tour guide as well, have Master's degree in International Relations, speak three languages, and I love culture and history!

Michal's knowledge about the WWII and Operation Anthropoid in particular was vast and deep. He really gave us a great background on Czech history, its role and impact on the second world war. He brought not just military knowledge but also local and personal knowledge up to today's history. We had a wonderful time discussing the connections of the past and what might have been if only certain events took pace, but also how the events of the time shaped the history of the world as it is today. We gained a better understanding of the sacrifice the Czech people made for their country and the greater good of humanity, may it never be forgotten. The added trip to Lidice was extremely powerful. This was a place we never would have thought to have gone and if we did we would not have known the full impact it played in the conclusion of WWII. The horrors imposed upon the people of this village should never be forgotten or it will be to the demise of the living. As one of the survivors said; "we were so naive, we did not know what was going on and we believed them." This was a moving tour and we feel blessed to have had Michal as our guide. If you have any interest in history, cultural connection, or even disdain for what the Nazi's did in WWII we strongly recommend this tour. Michal was a great guide in every respect. He gave us local advice for visiting places in addition to the great tour. Thank you so much, when we come back to Prague we will call upon you again for another tour. Jeff & Corinne

Michal is a phenomenal guide! His knowledge of WWII, especially related to Czechoslovakia is truly vast. He brings history to life! Our visit to numerous sites around Prague helped us to visualize what it must have been like while (what is now) the Czech Republic changed leadership, again and again. Our visits to sites significant to "Operation Anthropoid" showed the heroism these folks had in the face of overwhelming odds. It was truly memorable. Later, when we drove to Lidice, I was humbled by the museum and the tragic history of what happened there. Overall, this is one of the most extraordinary tours I've ever been on. I heartily recommend it.

This is an amazing tour! Please please take it. You will not forget it. And you will be glad that you took it. Mikal knows his stuff, is passionate about his subject and is a wonderful teacher. My husband and I could have never done this on our own and it left us with a deep appreciation of what the Czech people went through not only in World War II, but also after. And how the history of the Czech people before WWII informed their time in WWII. Mikal was very generous with his time, letting us absorb each place at our own pace. Lidici Museum and the memorials there are very moving and have been constructed and are honored daily with love. I cannot thank Mikal enough for this powerful insight into Czech history. We arrived late because we had written the time down incorrectly and Mikal still gave us the whole tour. I am so glad that he did.
