Make your way to St. Joseph Church, where this tour begins, then set out on a specially-designed route through Prague’s most important Communist sites. See the distinctive statuary and decorations in The Hall of the Red Army, built after the ‘elegant coup’ of 1948, and discuss KSC propaganda and politics.

Visit the mausoleum where the mummified corpse of Klement Gottwald—the first chairman of the KSC—was displayed, and the adjoining laboratory where his body was embalmed. See the largest equestrian statue in the world on Vitkov Hill, as the guide describes the importance Czech nationalism in local Communist rule.

Take in Letna Hill, former site of an enormous Stalin statue, and hear the tragic story of its sculptor. Visit the John Lennon Wall to see an important site of political protest, then pass the National Assembly building that was the seat of the Communist government. Continue to Wenceslaus Square, where the Velvet Revolution ignited in a single day: by the end of the tour, you’ll have a nuanced picture of the rise of Communism in Czechoslovakia, the impact of the Velvet Revolution, and its ongoing echoes in the modern-day Czech Republic.

This tour was fantastic. Vadim was an amazing guide and I would recommend this to anyone who wants a sophisticated, intellectual discussion on this history of communism in the Czech lands.
