The first part of the walk starts on the Old Town Square with our general introduction to Prague. Admiring the impressive composition of old buildings and churches, we also become acquainted with the Czech religious reformer Jan Hus.
Tiny lanes lead us back around other keyholes into Prague’s past: Mozart‘s Don Giovanni in the Estates Theatre, Karolinum – the Charles University since year 1348, the modern cubist house of the Black Madonna and the medieval courtyard Ungelt. If we have time we also visit the Powder Gate and the majestic baroque building of Municipal House.
A visit to the Jewish Quarter leads us back to it´s tragic history. You discover the destiny of Prague Jews living behind the wall of the former ghetto. See the Old-New Synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Jewish Museum … visit with us the places where the fabulous Golem was created, and follow with us in the footsteps of the famous Jewish writer Franz Kafka.
After visiting former ghetto we will continue to the beautiful baroque library of Klementinum. Crossing the Charles Bridge, the real “open gallery under the sky”, we admire the peaceful tiny Kampa Island, followed by the graffiti on Lennon Wall. Finally we reach the Lesser Town Square, with it´s great St. Nicholas Church. Then we climb 200 steps leading to the Hradcanske Square. Here we reach Prague Castle area, one of the biggest former fortresses in Europe. This “city within the city” hides the Schwarzenberg Palace, Archbishop’s Palace, Old Royal Palace, the Basilica of St. George … and the greatest architectural treasure – St. Vitus Cathedral.
We will finished our walk at the Strahov monastery - beautiful Prague landmark just next to the Castle hill.
