Lots of fun to explore sights seen during the day from a more historical perspective. We walked all the way across town from the Powder tower to the pedestrian bridge with many stops along the way for historic minilectures.

Tours are easy to come by in Prague, however none are like the Nightwatchman of Prague. Very fun and interactive. An entirely different perspective of Old Town. Our guide, met us in character and kept us involved throughout. Great experience.More

Hi, Yes that’s correct. Getting to Prague Marriott is easy (20 min max) by metro from the Charles bridge. It’s on the same line.
