Full Tour Description
Duration: 3 hours
Prague’s history is filled with magic, beauty and romance. On this tour, you’ll discover these aspects of the city and hear stories from its past. Along the way, you’ll hear about Mozart’s house and talk about his special relationship with Prague – this city is also known as ‘Mozart’s Mistress’. You’ll also hear all about Casanova, one of the most interesting characters of the 18th century, and how he created his memoirs while living in Prague.
After inspiring you with tales of the city’s past, we’ll wander over Tyn Court, where Medieval trade caravans stopped for some rest, relaxation and a little indulgence in the city’s charms.
We’ll also tell you about alchemy and astrology and how they were very important in Renaissance Prague. One such eccentric character we’ll talk about is astronomer Tycho Brahe and his golden nose! You’ll also learn the secrets of our famous clock – the symbols and meaning behind this famous Astronomical Clock are not what you think!
You’ll also learn all about Kabbalah, the third native spiritual tradition of Prague, which flourished in the Jewish Quarter with its mystical traditions told in tales by our entertaining guides.
Going back even further, we’ll find mystery in Prague – Castle Hill was used for worship by pagan tribes during prehistoric times and your guide will be happy to point the traces of this that still exist today, hidden from the eye of all but those in the know.
After all the fun legends and tales, we end the tour on a high with a one-hour boat cruise. The cruise will go along the beautiful Vltava River with both banks all illuminated for an impressive evening experience and plenty of photo opportunities! To further add to the sparkle of the evening, the cruise includes your choice of a complimentary beverage.
Our walking tours are small personal groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants, making them interactive and personal and giving you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide and press them for local tips on where to go and what else to do.
