Co budeš dělat

We´ll visit the remnants of communist penal camps and share with you the stories of Czech(oslovak) political prisoners. We’ll learn about uranium mining during and after WW II in the town of Jachymov (Ore Mountains near Karlovy Vary). We will visit an authentic uranium mine and hike to the places of former Nazi and later Czechoslovak gulag camps. We will share memories of former political prisoners of communism and take you to an authentic mine as well as solitary confinement in the camp.

We will offer you unique insight and show you the human face of local 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 political imprisonment in Czechoslovakia.

Talk and hike with us to the places of memory!

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, TEREZA and KRISTYNA 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.

By taking this excursion I was able to see the Czech countryside and witness the location of many unsavory historical places. Now I understand the country's history, 1940-present, in a way I would not have been able to without doing the excursion. Our guide, Tereza, told many stories and was successful in making it a learning-filled, packed day.

Very informative and moving experience. We enjoyed s private tour with dan, who was very passionate and knowledgeable about the history and stories of the gulags and political prisoners. We also enjoyed many other great conversations . The weather was iffy with new snow in the area of the gulags so we missed the mine tour as it was not open yet. But this did not detract from the experience. The restaurant we visited at lunch was superb and our favorite meal of our whole trip.

This experience was truly eye opening. We got to see a town outside of Prague, Jachymov, that we really wouldn't have had the chance to see otherwise. We got to go to a mine shaft and locations of gulags, while learning the history and physically seeing the effects of communism. Dan was incredibly kind and knowledgable, making this interactive history experience that much more enjoyable. The work that Political Prisoners do is incredibly impactful and it's been great to see their work first hand. We highly recommend this experience for those who want to see and learn more about the Czech history.

Tomas and Dan are passionate about their mission and excellent at their work. What their organization has accomplished in excavating this important part of Czech history is truly remarkable. They are fabulous at telling the story of this harrowing part of our human history and they create a fun, educational exciting experience with this amazing day. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is intrigued by history, loves the outdoors and is interested in experience the Czech Republic in a different way.

The description prepares you well for what to expect. Thomas checked-in with us a couple of times after we arrived in Prague and before our tour with additional last minute details. Thomas and Dan create a knowledge tour that was an experience completely different from what we could have had in Prague.

This traveling excursion was informative and world class - a truly eye opening experience. Our guides were deeply knowledge, spoke English very well, and were extremely accomodating. I learned so much about the hardships that the Czech political prisoners faced and of their malicious exploitation by the past regime. If you are interested in learning about some of the forgotten history of the Czech Republic and communism, I highly recommend booking this trip. You won't regret it. It was worth every penny.
