In light of the subject matter, this is a very enlightening and enjoyable tour!! The tour starts at a small theater in the Zizkov District of Prague. Very easy to get to from central Prague by taxi or tram. You are welcomed into a 1930s theater to watch the movie, but prior to that Marcus sets up the movie with historical details that are easily overlooked yet so helpful in preparing you for the movie viewing. The theater itself is wonderful, kept to period decor and has a fantastic bar from beer to tea and coffee, you are taken care of. Following the movie, Marcus then leads about a 20 minute Q/A about the movie and debunking what is historical fact from Hollywood fiction! We then set off to see some important sites relative to the actual operation and referenced in the movie. If you are remotely interested in WWII or seen the movie or haven't don't miss this tour!!

Description

Our adventure begins in the funky Kino Aero cinema in the trendy Žižkov neighbourhood. We set the scene in cinema cafe, where the guide will provide an introduction to the events that lead to the Nazi occupation of Prague. We'll discuss the problems faced by the local Resistance, the role of Czechoslovak government-in-exile and the context under which Operation Anthropoid was authorized.

We then watch the movie, following the story of Jan Kubiš and Josef Gabčik, the two parachutists chosen to assassinate Heydrich, right up to the final dramatic shootout between the assassins and the SS.

After the movie, there's time for a Q&A and a discussion with the guide, before leaving the cinema in search of some of the real locations featured on screen. We'll see the Moravec safehouse and Gestapo headquarters, before ending the tour at the Church of Ss. Cyril and Methodius, where the fateful final battle took place.

The tour is limited to a maximum number of 15 participants.

Necessary for locals and travelers!
Marcus met us at a local independent movie theater (which I plan to revisit for some great movies!) and discussed some historical background about the true story of the two parachuters during WWII who assassinated Heydrich, Hitler's right hand man. We then watched the disturbing but important film and discussed more and asked a zillion questions - which Marcus answered. He then took us on a tour through Prague to some of the most relevant sites from the movie. Marcus is knowledgeable in his quiet and friendly manner. It is a moving and important tour to take for both locals and visitors to Prague. I highly recommend it.

Awesome for WW2 buffs
Watching the movie (my second time) in a classic Czech theatre was again heart-rendering. I've lived in Czech for some time and know much of the story. But even for me the guided tour opened up new insights I'd never seen nor thought of before. Well worth the time and money.
