THE OLD TOWN – Trendy Prague old town Tour

Our Old Town tour runs at 11am rain or shine

IMPORTANT NOTE:
In 2014, our daily Prague tours are available by reservation only.

This Prague Old Town tour gives you the Prague landmarks and the atmosphere that make Prague Europe’s #1 short-break destination.

 

The Tour

We meet at Prague’s central meeting point of Old Town Square, a.k.a. ‘Staromak’. The Prague Old Town tour starts a few minutes prior to the hour so your guide can give you the necessary insider’s insights to fully appreciate the chiming of the Astronomical Clock – the world’s oldest working clock.

The Old town walking tour then embarks on an intricate journey through the maze of old-town Prague that includes the Tyn Church, Prague university, the extravagant Paris street, and many picture-perfect back alleys.

A new aspect of Prague then comes to life when we enter the Jewish ghost town – once the home to a vibrant Jewish community before Nazi occupation and assassinations.

The finale is at the Rudolfinum theater, with stunning views over the river and the Prague castle.
