Description

Bratislava City Tours

Free Communism Tour at 5pm every Tues, Fri, Sat & Sun

Much more than an ideology, communism was a mandatory way of life. Journey with us to the city’s hidden areas as we explore Soviet remnants of Eastern Bloc Bratislava & the many contradictions & quirks of living in this period.

Bratislava occupied a unique geographically & historically by sitting directly on the Iron Curtain. We take you away from the trodden tourist path to discover how Slovakia’s Socialist regime impacted directly on the daily lives of everyday people. Some aspects were positive, some were negative, most were controversial & all are fascinating.

 

 

Tours are in English, take 2.5hrs & explore all Bratislava’s major former socialist sights as well as many intriguing forgotten spots key to this period.

What’s included:

  • Scenes of Espionage
  • UFO Bridge
  • Bratislava Castle
  • Petrzalka
  • Socialist Realism Statues
  • Freedom Square
  • Pioneers’ Headquarters
  • Pyramid Radio Station
  • Socialist Artwork & Propaganda

The Communism Tour is aimed at solo & small group travellers. No reservation required – just show up on the day 🙂

However, if your group is over 8 people, please book a private tour in advance. This is to ensure a quality experience for all.
