T9 – The Old Town in Detail (2.5 hours)
Come and discover the oldest historic town of Prague. In its famous streets along the “Royal Route”, we will find ourselves in the middle of the hustle and bustle of this most visited Prague’s town. But just a couple of steps away, we will suddenly be surprised by quiet little squares and picturesque medieval streets. Together we will admire the beauty of the Old Town’s architecture from the Powder Tower and we will take a short walk of the Jewish Quarter, too.
The Celetna Street
Dating back to the 12th century, this is one of the oldest streets of Prague. You will see the House of the Black Madonna, a unique example of Cubist architecture that was inspired by Pablo Picasso’s work. We will also discover the historic buildings of the Charles University here.
The Estate Theatre
Once the theatre of Prague aristocracy, this beautiful building of Neoclassical style is the place where W. A. Mozart presented his Don Giovanni opera for the first time. Today, it belongs to the National Theatre and still focuses on Mozart’s work.
The Old Town Square
Dominated by the Gothic towers of the Tyn Church and the historic Town Hall, this square is the very heart of the Old Town. We will see the beautiful Baroque St. Nicholas Church and an impressive monument to the national hero Jan Hus. Of course, I will show you the famous Astronomical Clock and tell you about the way it works.
The Jewish Quarter
We will stroll through the streets of the Jewish Quarter (Josefov), seeing some of its synagogues on our way – the Old-New Synagogue, the Maisel Synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue and the old Jewish Town Hall. You will be surprised by the noble Art Nouveau beauty of the Paris Street.
The Powder Tower
Our walk will be rounded with a visit to this Gothic tower from the 15th century. Walking up to the viewing gallery at a height of 44 metres is a bit of adventure, but our effort will be rewarded by a magnificent view of both the Old Town and the New Town
