Tour Details

On the Discover Prague Tour our private guide will show you the most important landmarks and areas in Prague. The guide will be waiting for you in the lobby of your hotel or in front of your airbnb apartment building in Prague at agreed time. Then the guide will discuss with you where he/she will take you. Since this is a private tour, the guide is very flexible and can tailor the tour according to your needs. For example he/she can exclude the landmarks that you have already seen or focus on what you are interested in. The tour can be oriented on certain historical period, architecture, notable people or any other topic. Generally the guide will show you the following landmarks: Republic Square, Powder Gate, Municipal House, Estate Theater, Old Town Square, Astronomical Clock, Jewish Quarter, Old New Synagogue, Rudolfinum, Charles Bridge, Little Quarter, Church of Our  Lady Victorious, St. Nicholas Church, Nerudova street, Prague Castle and the St. Vitus Cathedral. On the driven version of Discover Prague Tour we will take you to places that are harder to reach by foot as well, such as Wenceslas Square, Charles Square, Crypt of the paratroopers, Dancing House, Strahov Stadium, Strahov Monastery and the Prague Castle District. 


Prague Castle

The largest castle complex in the world is located on a hill above the Vltava River in the center of Prague. It is a complex of churches, monasteries and palaces. Historically it was the seat of the Czech kings, today it serves as the seat of the Czech presidents. Our private guide will take you through the complex and show you the interior of the St. Vitus Cathedral. 


Old Town Astronomical Clock

The Astronomical Clock was constructed in 1410 and it was a miracle of engineering at the time. The clock shows us 4 different times, position of the sun and the moon in the sky and also the phases of the moon. Let our private guide explain to you how precisely you can read the clock. Every hour on the hour there is a little show which our guide will be happy to explain to you. 


Jewish Quarter

The Jewish ghetto was created in 1215 on the order of the Catholic church and it lasted until 1848. For 6 centuries the tiny part of the Old Town was the only area in Prague where jewish people could live. The ghetto was never walled and walked outside, however on a map it was clearly marked where jewish peole can live and where they cannot. In the early 19th century the Jewish Quarter of Prague was overcrowded so when it was finally cancelled in 1848, a lot of people moved outside. Instead poor people poured in and the situation in the ghetto further deteriorated. At the end of 19th century a process called assanation of the Jewish Quarter began. The former ghetto was razed almost entirely, with the exception of 6 synagogues, cemetery and town hall. The rest was built from scratch. If you would like to focus only on the Jewish Quarter, have a look at our Jewish Quarter private tour.
