Did anyone you know liberate Czechoslovakia? Did you know that you can come across an anti-tank "hedgehog" on almost every forest path in south-west Bohemia? You can crawl through dozens of "Czech Maginot Line" bunkers, craters or anti-aircraft warfare? To nearly touch a downed American bomber or original military cap signed by General Patton? Or just follow in the footsteps of your ancestors.
We'll begin our search for the remnants of the American army at Pilsen, where General Patton himself awaits us, along with 1,000 unique private artifacts Americans and Belgians left behind or gave to grateful West Bohemians. We will then drive around Southwest Bohemia or the sites of your choice associated with the Third United States Army, 16th Armored Division, 97th Infantry Division designed to capture the Skoda Munitions Plant.
Our knowledgeable guides will take you through the world war landscape dotted with bunkers of the Czechoslovak fortifications, stopping at war memorials and monuments to heroes, at the site of a former field hospital or at battle sites. We will pay at least a small tribute to all the heroes and ordinary people of a time that will never be forgotten.
And if you want, we can arrange and put you behind the wheel of a US military jeep and you can try driving it!
