End a day in Prague on a high note with this evening walking tour and Vltava River cruise! Following a route past some of the Old Town’s top attractions and lesser-known sites, this guided walking tour will open your eyes to the mystical and enchanting side of Prague’s history. As you see sights like the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, the Astronomical Clock and Charles Bridge and cruise along the lit-up riverfront, hear about stories about Prague’s romantics, Freemasons, astrologers and magicians. This tour is limited to 15 people, ensuring you'll enjoy a small-group atmosphere with your guide.
Meet your guide in central Prague, not far from the riverfront, and start your evening walking tour by making your way to a house where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart once lived. Your guide will tell you about Mozart’s relationship with Prague, which was so loved by the composer that it got the nickname ‘Mozart’s Mistress.’ You’ll also hear about another famed 18th-century figure, Casanova, who visited Prague in the 1750s and spent his last years writing his memoirs at a Czech castle – Duchcov Chateau.Next, move on through Old Town to the Tyn Court, home to foreign traders and merchants in the Middle Ages. The courtyard neighbors the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, the 15th-century Gothic cathedral that dominates the Old Town skyline. Follow your guide the few steps to Old Town Square, home to Prague’s famous Astronomical Clock. Listen as your guide tells you about the clock’s history, which dates all the way back to 1410, before continuing a few blocks west to the old Jewish quarter (also known as Josefov), where you can admire the Old New Synagogue (the oldest in Europe) in the peaceful evening ambience. Finally, head to the edge of the river, where you’ll catch a glimpse of Charles Bridge (and hear a little about its astrological symbolism) and then board a boat for your Vltava River cruise. Your one-hour cruise meanders along the river, allowing you to admire both sides of the river illuminated at night as you sip on your included beverage.
