Description

Get to know the long, tumultuous history of Prague on this walking tour led by a historian guide. Visit key sites in the city's Old Town, Wenceslas Square, and Jewish Quarter to learn about defining moments in Prague history while marvelling at the extraordinary architecture of the city.

Start your tour with your historian guide in the Old Town Square, which once acted as a marketplace that secured Prague's place as an important centre for mediaeval trade. Your guide shows you the majestic Gothic architecture of the Tyn Church and Old Town Hall, created during Prague's successful era of Bohemian self-rule. While in the square, learn about Jan Hus, whose statue stands as a symbol of Czech national identity.

Moving to the Wenceslas Square takes your tour into the 20th century. Learn about the events that took place in the square, which saw demonstrations and protests throughout the Prague Uprising and the Velvet Revolution. Continue on to the Municipal House, an Art Nouveau masterpiece, and learn of its significance in raising optimism for Czech independence.

Your final stop is in the Jewish Quarter, where your guide shows you the Old New Synagogue, the oldest functioning synagogue in Europe. As you visit a Jewish cemetery and the beautiful Rococo-style Jewish Town Hall, learn from your guide about how interactions between the Jewish community and Prague's German and Czech populace changed and evolved over time. Bring your tour to an end at the Vltava River, from which you can see the astounding Prague Castle.
