TOURS IN PRAGUE

 

 

WALKING TOUR OF DOWNTOWN PRAGUE

approx. 4 hours

 

This tour is a perfect introduction to the downtown area which is best seen on foot. You will walk the cobblestone streets of the Old Town and see where the former border between the Old Town and the New Town was located.

 

While standing on the Old Town Square famous for its Astronomical Clock, you can admire the 12 apostles every hour on the hour and the whole mechanism can be explained to you in detail. The oldest house in the city is also located here - it dates back to the 14th century. You will see the statue of Jan Hus in the middle of the square, the Kinski Palace which houses a gallery now and every single house on the square has a story worth telling. The twin towers of the Tyn Church are not part of the square but they are best seen from them and you will be amazed that such a mighty church can have such a small entrance.

 

You may choose to relax over a cup of coffee or a glass of beer at the old market place Ungelt before you continue towards the Powder Tower where the city ended seven centuries ago. Another "must see" is the Municipal House built in art nouveau style. You can either enjoy a concert in its elegant Smetana Hall or just have refreshments at one of its three restaurants.

 

You will continue to the bottom of Wenceslas square that witnessed the Velvet Revolution in November 1989 – the overthrow of communism. You will also pass the colorful fruit and vegetable market, then walk back to the Old Town Square and along the pedestrian Charles street to another "must" in Prague – Charles Bridge. Not only is it the best place for taking pictures, but each of its 30 statues has its own story. By the time you finish listening to the stories, you are ready for a well-deserved rest at one of the many cafes along the Vltava River.
