Tour description provided by Viator

Marvel at the historic center of Prague on this three hour guided walking tour through the beautifully cobbled streets and past the diffusion of architecture. You'll observe the rich cultural life of a region that is home to the culturally influential German novelist Franz Kafka and the last president of czechslovakia, Vaclav Havel.

Discover Pragues Powder Tower built in 1475 to be used by bohemian monarchs during coronations. Located at the edge of old town, the Powder Tower was used to store gunpowder in the 17th century which very much defines its name. As you walk along the Royal Route which was originally used for coronation processions by Bohemian kings, the historical path engraved with a silvery plate holding the inscription 'silver line' can be traced through the old center of Prague.

As you walk through the Old Town Square located between Wenceslas square and Charles Bridge, the city features various architectual styles including gothic which inspired the Tyn Cathedral, which has been part of the city since the 14th century and the baroque inspired St. Nicholas church (completed in 1735). This gothic style architecture can also be seen in the astronomical clock on the Old Town Hall.

Uncover Pariska street (Art Nouveau style) which is lined with an array of luxury shops and restaurants. Later you will walk through the former Jewish Quarter located between the Old Town Square and the Vltava river, and birthplace of the literary legend Franz Kafka, to the Rudolfinum. Then enjoy a magical view of the Charles Bridge with its baroque style statues, as well as witnessing the biggest castle in the world, Prague castle. Returning to Lesser Town, an area shrouded with narrow cobbled streets and picturesque cottages and shops.
