What you'll do

We will guide you through the period of World War II here in Prague. In the beginning of the tour we will start with the introduction of the outcome of WWI and reason for rise of Nazi Germany. You will understand why Hitler came to power, and how the Nazi occupation impacted life in Prague. We will talk about Prague Uprising, the bombing of Prague, and victorious moments in May 1945.
Clearly and in a historical sequence you will understand all events that has lead to the assasination of Reinhard Heydrich, including the student uprising and the events that occurred during the early days of the war, devoted work of local resistence, what Operation Anthropoid was, and who were the key players involved. Discover the personal stories of heroes involved in Operation Anthropoid and imagine what you would do in that situation. Our last stop will be at the Church of St Cyril and Methodius in the New Town, where Czechoslovakia’s heroes fought their last battle. The church now serves as a memorial to the victims of the Third Reich and you can spend time contemplating Prague’s tragic history before the tour ends.
Other things to note
Due to the availability of the memorial you can book a tour only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sunday.
The experience has to have at least two people in order to begin.

Hi,
we are professional tour guides with a passion for history.
We have been interested in history since we were little, especially when it comes to the conflicts of the first half of the 20th century. That is why we enjoy taking people on the Operation Anthropoid and World War II tour, both those who know about the subject and those who don’t.
Some of us studied history at the university and have been a certified and licensed tour guides for about 8 years. We love to share our broad knowledge with others and that is why we started working in the tourism industry.
We are very communicative, open minded and we love travelling. Being sometimes a visitor helped us understand the interests and the expectations of tourists from different parts of the world.
We speak English and Czech.

Awesome and unforgettable experience. Jakub was an excellent guide with such a wealth of knowledge on the subject of Operation Anthropoid and WW2 jn general as well as being extremely friendly, kind and funny. Everyone on the tour was captivated by the storytelling and moved by the experience. Definitely an important (I would argue unmissable) experience to have while visiting Prague to have both a deeper understanding of the history of the city and a greater appreciation for the place it is today. 10/10, I could not recommend this more.

The tour was a great overview of WWII and Operation Anthropoid. My guide was Peter and Simone came along as well. Since I was the only one on tour (it is February after all), thhis allowed the tour to go a bit quicker, so Peter stopped a bit more to mention other general historical aspects of Prague to lighten up the somber subject matter. Very nice people!

Our guide’s name was Petr and he was really lovely! We walked around the main historical sights where the WW2 left its biggest marks on the city of Prague. Thank you for the awesome guide!

We booked a tour earlier today, and had our tour by 2pm, our host was Jakub H - we ended up with a private tour. We found the experience to be extremely informative, where we gained new knowledge and had the ability to ask questions at any point which he gladly answered. We also learned knowledge from a locals perspective including where to eat! And what life is like in Czech culture. We had a really enjoyable experience, the whole tour lasted three hours however it felt like much quicker - the Anthropoid Operation should be more known as it is an important part of the war, it is definitely worth a visit :) THANK YOU!!!!!
