Full description
Discover the hidden history of Prague, and see the most popular sites of the “City of 100 Spires” on a 2-hour walking tour of the Old Town and Josefov neighborhood.

Learn about the curious symbols on the Astronomical Clock, and hear about the life of the man on the big monument in Old Town Square; the Czechs' beloved Jan Hus! Discover Prague’s role in the development of culture and education in Central Europe as you are guided past the Karolinum complex of buildings from the 15th century.

Go to the Estates Theatre (Stavovské divadlo) in Prague’s historic theater district, and admire the façade of the 18th-century cultural venue. Discover the birthplace of Franz Kafka, and look at the edifices of city churches.

Then, venture into the former Jewish Ghetto in the tiny Josefov quarter, completely surrounded by the Old Town. See some of the city synagogues, and learn about the cramped conditions before the ghetto was destroyed in the early 20th century.

Along the way, your guide will explain the formative history of Bohemia, and discuss why these sites are significant to the Czechs.

Our guide a young Czech student was pleasant and helpful despite the weather, it poured down with rain for the whole tour. But Tomasz was so engaging throughout that he took our minds off feeling wet and cold. My fiancee and I love history and Tomasz had much to tell us and we both learnt a lot from his tour and he kept us entertained for the whole 2 hours. Tomasz is an excellent guide and we would highly recommend him.

A pleasant walk

I rather liked the walk. The guide did introduce me in Prague history-both Christian and Jewish. He made a lot of connections of Prague history with our time, so I understood better how the city had been changing in time. It was interesting. Meanwhile, what I want to remark: the tour has been invented as a true introduction-a some kind 'tour for dummies' (in a good sense). For a person who has never been to Prague before, it's a real dive into the city's murky past as well as into influence of the past on modernity. But if a person has already visited Prague, I would recommend to choosing something more advanced.
