During this 3-hour guided walk you’ll learn to recognize the features of Art Nouveau design, from the ginkgo biloba leaves on façades, revealing oriental influences on the style, to the elaborate light fixtures that are hallmarks of Art Nouveau interiors. It is no accident that most of the city’s Art Nouveau buildings are hotels, elegant bars and restaurants, and train stations. These were frequented by the first globetrotters, who were enjoying the fruits of 19th-century industrialization in the early years of the 20th century before war swallowed up their world. Visit the stunning Lucerna bar and the elegant Grand Hotel Europa. Draw parallels throughout the walk, with examples of Prague’s Cubist and Rondo-Cubist architecture, including the House of the Black Madonna and the Bank of the Legions.

This is a great option for a full overview of the city. It’s best seen by walking and you see lots of the main sights during the tour. There is lunch and a boat ride intermingled so it’s not only walking. The lunch options were very good and authentic. The snack/beverage on the boat were refreshing. Our guide, Allen, was extremely knowledgeable and directed us to some excellent local experiences and restaurants.

The Art Nouveau & Cubist Architecture tour is an absolute must to help you understand the spirit of Prague. Vadim is not only knowledgeable about his topic, he loves these buildings. He also shared more information, current and past when the opportunity arose. He is the perfect guide.

This tour is worth every penny! Bonita, our guide, was able to tell us a lot about the different architectural styles in a historical-political context. It was a very interesting 3 hours in which we visited houses and buildings, some of which are off the usual tourist paths. Any time!

Very insightful tour led by a renowned expert, Mr. Vadim Erent. It's a wonderful experience to discover Prague's hidden gems with Vadim. Whether you have sufficient time allocated to Prague or not, this tour is one of the must-haves once you visit Prague. Strongly endorse.
