What You’ll See

This is my FLAGSHIP TOUR, most attended and most reviewed. We’ll meet on Prague’s iconic Old Town Square where you’ll learn about several buildings on the square including the Kinsky Palace, Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, ST Nicholas Church, the Old Town Hall and the Astronomical Clock. I’ll tell you about Jan Hus and his monument. You’ll learn about the Marian Column and the Meridian. You’ll get tips about eating on the square and how to avoid being ripped off. You’ll learn about the Rudolfinum and the Museum of Decorative Arts, their history and what to see inside. In the Jewish Quarter I’ll tell you about the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Pinkas Synagogue, the Klausen Synagogue, the Ceremonial Hall, the Old New Synagogue and the Spanish Synagogue. I’ll tell you how and when the Jewish community established and what became of it over the years. You’ll learn about the Velvet Revolution and why we get a certain day as a State Holiday. You’ll learn about the Prague Metronome and how the riverside has changed over the years so you’ll know when you’re in the Old Town and when you are in the Jewish Quarter. By the end of the tour you’ll be able to translate some Czech and interpret unique building identifiers. In the meantime you’ll be learning about Prague’s architectural heritage and it’s hidden secrets as we explore places where big groups can’t go. You’ll see photos of what it looked like here over 100 years ago. You can ask whatever questions you want to i.e. WW2, Communism, Politics and get advice on other ways to enjoy your city break.
