Plus, ride across the Vltava River to Kampa Park and see sculptures by native artist David Cerný, learning about the history of Prague as you go.

Meet your guide in Old Town and listen to a quick safety briefing before hopping on your bike and beginning your Prague bike tour. Head first across the Vltava River, pausing on Strelecky Island to hear a story about the Czech National Theatre. Continue to the river’s western side, making your way to Kampa Park, where you’ll cruise through to see the famous baby statues by Czech artist David Cerný, whose work tends to be very unique and sometimes hilariously bizarre. You’ll also enjoy a great view of the Charles Bridge, whose 650-plus-year history you'll learn about from your guide. Next pedal to the John Lennon wall, a collection of street art that became representative of protest against communism in the ‘80s, before riding past the Kafka Museum, outside of which you’ll see another piece of interesting work by Cerný. Head back across the river to explore the old Jewish quarter, where you’ll see a few very old sites, including the Old Jewish Cemetery, which was in use from the 15th century, and the Old New Synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe. Then make your way to Old Town Square to see one of Prague’s most famous attractions – the Astronomical Clock. The square is also home many churches, including the Church of Our Lady Before Týn, and other historical sites, which you’ll hear about from your guide. From here, wind your way past the medieval buildings of Old Town to the Powder Tower, the Gothic city gate that dates back to the 1400s, and then pedal to the Estates Theatre, where Mozart premiered his opera Don Giovanni in the 1780s. Your last stop before ending your tour where you started is Wenceslas Square, one of the city’s main squares and the historical center of much of Prague’s change over the last century, including the Czech Uprising and the Velvet Revolution. Refreshment stop is included: coffee or soft drink on your choice.
