T1 – The Four Towns of Prague (3 hours)
This walking tour offers you a general overview of the whole historic city centre.
The four towns of Prague, founded in the 13th and the 14th centuries, were put on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992 as the largest urban area in the world. Most of Prague’s highlights are situated right here.
Walking is easy as the tour begins in the Castle Town (Hradcany) and our walk is mainly downhill.
The Castle Town (Hradcany)
This very quiet and tiny town is full of contrasts.
You will discover its humble but picturesque houses as well as noble palaces of the local aristocracy. You will see the largest palace of Prague, the Loreto pilgrimage site and together we will admire “The City of a Hundred Spires” from the viewing terrace of the Prague Castle.
The Little Town (Mala Strana)
In the most romantic town of Prague, we will stroll along the streets of the “Royal Route”, marvel at the overwhelming Saint Nicholas Church and admire the elegant Baroque facades and romantic courtyards where time seems to have stopped.
The Charles Bridge (Karluv most)
The oldest bridge of Prague is a true miracle of architecture. You will learn many interesting details about the way it was built and discover why it has survived all floods. We will admire a beautiful gallery of Saints and I will tell you the moving story of the most famous of them, St. John of Nepomuk.
The Old Town (Stare Mesto)
This is the most ancient town of Prague. We will walk through the former Jesuit college named Clementinum, see the New City Hall and the charming Old Town Square dominated by the Tyn Church. We will see the historic Town Hall with its stunning Astronomical Clock and you will find out about the way it works.
The New Town (Nove Mesto)
At the end of our walk, we will arrive in the Wenceslas Square. The heart of the modern City of Prague was the showplace of the Velvet Revolution and many other historic events. It is dominated by the overwhelming building of the National Museum which reopens in 2018 after a long-lasting restoration and it is definitely worth a visit.
