Overview
Visitors come to Prague in droves to see its bohemian art, cobbled lanes, and centuries’ old bridges and castles. On this unique evening walking tour, leave the navigation to your night-watchmen guide, who tells you about Prague’s history while decked out in historical dress. The tour is limited to a small group, meaning you enjoy plenty of personal attention, with plenty of time to ask questions.

What to Expect
Your tour begins near the gates of Prague’s Old Town. Meet your night watchman guide and get started on an educational tour of the history of Prague between the 14th and 18th centuries. Your guide takes you to historically relevant locations. Walk from Powder Gate to Old Town Square, one of Europe’s largest and most beautiful urban spaces. The square has been Prague’s principal public square since the 10th century. Check out the dramatic, art-nouveau statue of Jan Hus—a Czech theologian and seminal figure of the Bohemian Reformation—in the center. Continue to the banks of the Vltava River. Your final stop is the Charles Bridge, offering panoramic views of Prague Castle. Take advantage of the good viewpoints to take pictures of the castle and the neighborhood.
