Full description
Your exciting trip starts in Prague in the morning hours. Following approximately 45 minutes of travel, arrive to the central Bohemian village of Lidice. During World War II and the Nazi occupation, this village became a world-famous symbol of the suffering of civilians and the monstrosity of the fascist regime. Together with the French village of Oradour-Sur-Glane, Lidice became one of only two villages completely destroyed in the hinterland during the war.

In June 1942, Adolf Hitler ordered the destruction of Lidice as retribution against the alleged help provided by the village's people during the assassination of a high-ranking man in Nazi Germany: SS General Reinhard Heydrich, Imperial SD Commander and Deputy Reich Protector in the occupied Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

After your visit to the Lidice museum, the memorial, and the sculpture dedicated to the murdered children of Lidice, travel to the town of Kladno. Once there, a food-tasting lunch is ready for you at a famous local restaurant with a very long history. Taste local specialties and a famous Czech main dish, as well as Czech beer or wine and non-alcoholic drinks.

After lunch, travel for about 30 minutes to one of the most famous Czech glassworks, established in 1846. This glass factory is unique for its production of pink and black crystal glass, and its products can also be found in the Buckingham Palace of the British Queen. Tour the factory from start to finish, with the opportunity to admire famous Czech glassblowers and glass grinders using skills which have been passed down for many generations.

Following the excursion there is the possibility to visit the factory shop located in the factory, where you can buy crystal glass products at discounted outlet prices. At the conclusion of your experience, your expected return to Prague is at around 4:00PM.
