World War Two Prague was not defined by huge land battles or aerial warfare. I take you on a walk through a largely chronological journey from 1938 to 1945. Actually we’ll start a bit earlier than that so you really understand how World War Two got started. We’ll cover the main characters, good and bad. Learn about the events both shocking and inspirational that shaped these characters, their roles, their impact and their fate.

plaque showing people killed in the vicinity of the main railway station during the prague uprising in 1945
We start at the train station because in the story of the war this is chronologically the best place to start. For the rest of the tour you’ll be seeing various plaques. The plaque shows the birth dates but, the date of death is always the same 4-day period and you’ll learn why.

It’s a strange feeling when you find out the a building you’ve walked past thousands of times turns out to have been Gestapo Headquarters. Stories here about a film shoot and a red carpet.

I’ll tell you about Reinhard Heydrich, his assassination and the aftermath. It’s up to you if you want to go deeper.

plaque showing date of death October 24th 1942
After this tour you’ll be sensitised to plaques on the walls and you’ll be seeing similar dates. But not on this one. October 24th 1942 is a very specific date and you’ll learn why.
