Prague Communism Tour
"This is a story that needs to be told."
Remembering the Cold War
Unfortunately, the path up to the Memorial on Vitkov Hill is not accessible by car. Good shoes are a must, but we promise it's worth the trek.
For those with mobility concerns, e.g. wheelchair users or travelers who are concerned about the walk up the hill, we can design a custom route that stays on flatter terrain. Please inquire with our Prague team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prague native Hana studied Historical Sciences at Charles University, where she focused her thesis on the lives of children who were deported to Terezin concentration camp during the Second World War.

Marek Červený studied at the Institute of Art History at the Charles University in Prague, earning a Masters degree in 2011. His thesis focused on the influence of the political system of the interwar Czechoslovak Republic on the iconography of official art commissions. His field of interest covers modern art, public monuments, funeral sculpture, sculptural decoration of architecture and the relations between politics and art. He believes that one need not visit museums to enjoy art, rather it is enough to look around while walking on the streets. This approach helps him understand Prague and the connection between its history, society, its institutions and the people who built it. Marek also enjoys working with archival records, using these to fill empty gaps in the story of Czech art.

After attending a French-language grammar school in Olomouc, he studied history at the Masaryk University in Brno and specialized on 19th-century ethnic conflicts in Central Europe.

Pavel's favored topics are the psychology of architecture and sociological understanding of Central European history - not to mention, he is a specialist on Czech beers and loves biking.
