|In the company of an experienced local guide, discover the historical centre of Prague.|
The dramatic history of the Old Town, Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge and Lesser Town is revealed, as we explore medieval streets and squares lined with ancient buildings, and learn of the people and events that shaped the city over the past one thousand years.
This enlightening walking tour begins near Wenceslas Square, from where the guide leads us to the cobbled streets around the Old Town Square. Remarkably, many buildings have survived here from the Middle Ages.
We see the Estates Theatre, where Mozart performed in 1787; Havel's Market; the Gothic Tyn Church; charming Ungelt, which for centuries was a place for merchants; St. Jacob’s Church, where royal weddings took place; the Carolinum, the oldest University in Central Europe; the Powder Tower; Republic Square; and the stunning Art Nouveau Municipal House.
We also explore the Jewish Quarter, once the largest Jewish ghetto in Europe. We see its synagogues and the old Jewish cemetery, and learn about both the torrid events that occurred here, and the wonderful traditions and legends associated with the area.
Next, we cross Charles Bridge, taking in panoramic views over the river, before visiting the picturesque Lesser Town, where the tour ends.
In just 2˝ hours, the Prague Historical Centre Tour offers participants a terrific introduction to the city.
