Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Prague’s Old Town and other central city attractions on this three-hour walking tour. With a knowledgeable guide, walk from one famous landmark to the next, including Wenceslas Square, the Estates Theatre, Old Town Square, the Jewish quarter and the Charles Bridge. See beautiful historic buildings and admire the medieval architecture, learning about the history of Prague as you go. You’ll take a break for an included beverage! This tour is limited to 20 people, ensuring you'll enjoy a small-group atmosphere with your guide.

Meet your guide in central Prague and begin your city walking tour with a stroll through the charming alleyways and streets of Old Town, passing sites like Betlemske Chapel. Throughout your tour, your educated guide will regale you with tidbits of Prague history and culture, telling you about the triumphs and tragedies that have taken place in the city over the past 1,000 years.

Follow your guide past sculptures and monuments, making your way to Wenceslas Square, one of the city’s main squares and the historic center of the country’s 20th-century battle against communism and fascism. As you stand amid the city bustle of the square, hear about the Czechs who fought for freedom for their country.

Continue through the heart of the city, passing the Estates Theatre, where Mozart dazzled in 1787 with the premiere of his opera Don Giovanni, and Charles University, which was founded in 1348, making it one of the oldest universities in Europe. Head to Old Town Square, where you’ll admire its candy-colored buildings, fairytale-like churches with ornate architecture and Prague’s famous Astronomical Clock, which dates back to the early 1400s.

Next, take a break at a local cafe for a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of Czech beer. When you’ve refueled, continue your walking tour to the city’s old Jewish quarter, where you’ll learn about the nearly 12 centuries of history of Jewish people in Prague. See the Old Jewish Cemetery, which was in use from the 15th century, and the Old New Synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe.

Finish your tour with a walk to the riverfront, where you’ll stand on the edge of the Vltava and enjoy a wonderful view of Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, two of the city’s most famous sights.
