Prague Hidden Gems Walking Tour

Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Start your tour in the morning from Old Town Square with a brief introduction of the city's history over the past millennium.

    Next, you will explore several back streets and alleys located around the square. Your journey will bring you to Tyn Court where you will have the chance to glance at two beautiful churches, both high in importance for the royal family of Luxembourg.

    From there, the route will lead you to a square that once was the biggest square in the world: Charles Square. Listen to the many stories this landmark has to offer – from the beginning of Hussite wars by the first Prague defenestration to the bombing of Prague in 1945.

    Located on the other side of the Charles Square is Emmaus Monastery, one of the few places held in original and genuine gothic style. Learn how a part of the monastery was blown into pieces when a bomb was dropped on the monastery’s church.

    The last part of your tour will bring you to the old medieval fortress Vysehrad Castle, the seat of the first king of Bohemia. Enjoy the amazing panoramic views of Vltava river and the city center of Prague from here.

    We wanted a hidden gem walking tour and this did not disappoint. We enjoyed plenty of the skyline and architecture while Mike regaled tales of King Charles IV reign. Some of the precious and historic sights were breathtaking and not inundated by other tourists so we knew we were

    Thank you very much for your review! It's great to hear you enjoyed our Hidden Gems tour and were able to explore other parts of Prague many people miss. However, Czech Republic is not just about Prague so we hope next time we'll have a chance to take you out of the city to show you a bit of our countryside. Until then - happy travels!
