What you'll do

We´ll visit places connected with the stories of Czech(oslavak) political prisoners and the struggle against the communist regime. We’ll learn about Václav Havel, the world-famous Czech playwright, dissident, political prisoner and president. We will visit his favourite pubs and taste the lifestyle of the Czech(oslovak) underground. We will offer you unique insight and show you the human face of history. Our guides are trained professionals working as researchers and educators in the field of modern history. Their tours of tourisme-de-mémorie explain recent historical development in context. If you join us, you will support the activities of our NGO and experience a unique aspect of Prague! Check the references of our guests and learn more about our tailor-made approach. Talk and walk with us!

Tomas, Kristyna, Dan, Tereza, Alex

We are members of Political Prisoners.eu, NGO dedicated to documenting and preserving the history of political prisoners in socialist Czechoslovakia. We have interviewed countless survivors of communist persecution and preserve their experiences. Tomas is the founder, while his colleagues DAN , KRISTYNA, TEREZA and ALEX are scholars with study experiences in the Czech Republic as well as abroad. They have an avid passion for 'living' history; history that is meaningful and relevant, with a clear sense of place and individual character.

About the organization

Political Prisoners.eu is a Prague-based, unsubsidized research initiative whose primary purpose is to collect and disseminate the oral histories of the political prisoners who survived Czechoslovakian prisons under socialist dictatorship. We hold regular historical conferences, youth camps, and compile the Czechoslovak Political Prisoners anthology to enable these stories to cross the globe.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Političtí vězni.cz.
