Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience.

You'll begin your Prague tour by hearing how a chain-smoking Bohemian dissident championed liberation from Communist rule and led the nation 
to freedom. Even with freedom though some things never change and you'll find out exactly what those are in a favorite local passageway full of old-world magic and subtle modern-day resistance in the form of provocative sculptures and graffiti. 

Kicking off the sampling aspect of the tour, your first taste of Prague will be the best of the daily fresh specials offered in the passage of densely-populated specialty food and pastry shops. 

After walking in the footsteps of the always interesting but never politically correct modern Bohemian, David Cerny, you'll witness some truly beautiful metro art and will not be able to avert your gaze from the second-ugliest building in the whole world. 

By now you should be ready for a beer from a local microbrewery and another sampling of Czech food for lunch. You'll move on with this cultural tour of Prague by taking the metro towards the always-beautiful Vinohrady, where you'll enjoy wonderful views as you walk through the park while chatting about daily life in Prague. 

But the tour isn't over yet. Leave the park behind you and enter the coolest but admittedly not the cleanest part of Prague. Vršovice will give you a feel for modern Bohemia and you will choose one of the amazing cafés to enjoy local snacks, drinks and good company. Get local expert tips for the rest of your stay before taking the tram back to the Old Town to live as the free-spirited Bohemian you've discovered within yourself.
