The tour begins on the Old Town Square and ends at Prague Castle
What You’ll See
Even though we’ll meet on Prague’s iconic Old Town Square outside the Kinsky Palace there is no overlap with the Old Town and Jewish Quarter tour (completely different content). It’s a short walk to the start point where you’ll be introduced to the Sculptor David Cerny and from there you’ll see pieces of his work like the Hanging Man, Upside-down Horse, Kafka’s Head, Babies, the Pissing Men and of course you’ll learn the associated stories and inspirations. On the way we’ll explore Bethlehem Square/Chapel, the secret message from Jan Hus, the Franciscan Garden, Lucerna Passage, Tesla window, National Theatre, Dancing House, the Legion bridge (and why it has had so many names), riverside flood markers, the 9/11 Memorial and Kampa Park.
The route may be adapted but we aim to take a tram up to the back of the Castle to explore the courtyards and finish at the front of Prague Castle having learned about the historic buildings like St Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace and Golden Lane (in the summer season we include the Imperial Gardens). You’ll get tips on how to beat the queues and how best to explore the buildings.
