Living through Velvet Revolution

We will take you to places where the Velvet revolution was happening. Perhaps, you would like to hear what it was like living in the then Czechoslovakia, when you couldn’t travel, when you had to wait in long queues if you wanted to buy a good book (and I mean good books by good authors such as Milan Kundera, Václav Havel or Michail Bulgakov). It is true, Prague at that time was a gray city but there was a completely different life under the surface. People were close to each other, they cared about each other, reading and talking about books, hosting home theatre performances, caring for their loved ones, trying hard to be happy in a somewhat unhappy time. So if you want to hear the story of living parallel lives and living through the Velvet Revolution in 1989 join Prague Travel Concierge for a walk back to recent history. At that time, some of us heard for the first time of Václav Havel, most of “younger” ones of us heard for the first time about historic events as they truly happened, as oppose to adjusted versions taught to us at school. We will take you to places that mean a lot to us Czechs and our freedom, freedom which should never be taken for granted no matter which country you live in.
