Your day of adventure in Prague begins in the Castle district, surrounded by centuries of history, architecture, and beautiful gardens. You will visit Prague Castle a UNESCO World Heritage site, which was founded in 880 for Bohemian Kings, and is still used today as the official seat of the Czech Republic president. You will learn about Prague’s intriguing history as you explore the Castle complex labyrinthine area, which is considered to be the largest ancient castle in the world. 

Next, you will make your way downhill through Lesser Town, one of the older neighborhoods of the city, and discuss key squares and the ornately decorated churches. Then, enjoying a local lunch, we will refuel and recharge over a discussion of Prague’s thousand-year-old history. 

Crossing Charles Bridge, the gothic masterpiece, you will then arrive in the narrow winding streets of the enchanting Old Town. Here in the lively cobblestoned hub, you will explore the main sites of political, historical, and artistic importance. 

You will finish your tour in Prague’s Jewish Quarter, learning the history of Prague’s Jewish community over the centuries. Depending on the day and interests of the group, you may visit a historical venue such as the Old New Synagogue or the Holocaust Memorial in the Pinkas Synagogue. 

By the end of this wonderful day filled with the best of what Prague has to offer, you will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of this vibrant capital.

Charles has quite the extensive knowledge of Prague and its rich history. He provided facts about the city and the country of the Czech Republic. He certainly knows about the culture of the people. This intro to Prague is a great way to kick off our visit.
Ernestine was fabulous and had planned a well paced day for us. As we parted, she pointed us in the direction of other points of interest. We learned so much history of the country and its people. Such a good investment of our day in Prague!
Ernistina did an excellent job! Thank you
