CZECH REPUBLIC, PRAGUE CITY WALKING TOUR
This post may contain affiliate links
During my weekend in Prague, I experienced two tours in one day. This was a bit of a mistake because it was so hot during August. but we were limited on time, so we just went ahead and did them. In the morning, we left our hotel and walked down to find the Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock
Whilst admiring the Astronomical clock, we came across this company called Discover Prague and they specialise in walking tours across Prague. We decided to Royal Walk Free Tour, you literally just walk around the city with a guide who tells you the history of the Czech Republic.
This tour covers: Old Town Square, Astronomical Clock, Charles’ Bridge, Old Jewish Quarter, Old New Synagogue & the Golem, Powder Tower, Prague Castle & St. Vitus’ Cathedral, Art Nouveau Municipal House, Powder Tower, Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, Wenceslas Square, St. Nicolas Church…and much, more. Apart from being free, this was a really good tour. I lucked out, as I had the Aussie Ashley in Prague – due to love – he was very entertaining and it was really enjoyable experience.
Then straight after this tour finished roughly about two and a half hours we paid to join the Prague Castle Tour. This was with an American called Angela – again this was a really good tour. This cost me CZK 300 – roughly £8.50. I saw and learnt more about Prague and its history.
This tour covers: Prague Castle, Mala Strana, Hradcany, St. Vitus’ Cathedral, Strahov Monastery and Brewery, St. Nicolas’ Church, Domecek Gestapo/StB Prison, Wallenstein Palace, The Loreto, St. George’s Basilica, ‘Mozart’s House’, Novy Svet, The Black Tower, and much, more. The most beautiful thing I saw on that tour was St. Vitus’ Cathedral.
In conclusion, I found the day very tiring. It was very hot over 27 degrees and I ended walking for over 7 hrs, something I do not do in my daily life. These tours are worth doing, but maybe over a couple of days – but then my time was limited.
