The two hours passed so fast, the guide was well informed and well mannered. The stories told to us were really touching and we saw the traces of WW2 at the buildings. Luckilly Prague wasnt too much damaged at the end of the WW2.

As a Czech citizen I was reluctant to go on this tour, but the guide was fantastic and my friends have a good time too, so it wasnt wasted time at all.

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

you just have to turn up at the meeting point at the appointed time. I don't think there is any way you can pre-book
