Our tour starts at the top of the Wenceslas Square, which faced all major revolutions and military parades throughout the 20th century. A stroll down the square takes you through Lucerna palace and Franciscan garden, well hidden from tourists but well known to locals who want to escape daily bustle and hustle of the city.
You’ll learn many interesting stories along the way; about an unfinished coronation church of Czech kings, how the third oldest university in Europe was built and why locals complained about a theatre, which later hosted W.A. Mozart. Experience an amazing journey across all styles of architecture you can think of – gothic, renaissance, baroque, rococo, gorgeous art nouveau and cubism. Want to make sure you’ll really see all the major sights? Just tick them off on the way: Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square with Astronomical Clock and Týn church, Estates Theatre, Charles University, Municipal House, Powder Tower, House of a Black Madonna, Church of St.James, Jewish Quarter with Old New Synagogue and Jewish Cemetery and much, much more…
