    From the castle we will walk down through the quaint Little Quarter full of aristocratic Renaissance and Baroque houses, wonderful palaces and churches. The local poetic streets could be seen in the film Amadeus. The renowned Czech writer Jan Neruda used to live here. His name was borrowed and used by the famous Pablo Neruda! You should not miss the most beautiful and pompous Baroque church in Prague - St Nicolas's with the largest ceiling fresco in Europe. W.A. Mozart played the organ here.

    Minimal duration: 1 hour
    We will promenade across the oldest bridge in Prague, the Charles bridge, decorated with 30 old picturesque statues and the most beautiful gothic bridge tower in Europe. The bridge has been standing since 1357, thanks to - legend says - eggs mixed into the mortar. If you touch the magic five star sign you can make a wish and the power of the saints will help you … Here, you can really breathe in the true atmosphere of Prague, get back into the times of golden Prague. Very romantic!! Maybe you will recognize "Mission impossible" and "XXX" scenery. Near the bridge you can also see the Prague Venice area with the Devil stream and a famous painted anti-communistic John Lennon wall. At the end of the bridge you can see the huge Jesuit College and the old library called the Klementinum.

    Here we will immerse into Jewish town - Josefov, with the oldest active Synagogue in Europe, the Old Jewish Cemetery (also Europe's oldest surviving), and the birth place and museum of the mysterious Franz Kafka. Take note of the Jewish town hall clock which has hands that run backwards! We learn about the rabbi Jehuda Löw Benzalel, who made the mysterious creature Golem.
    If you like we can enter the Prague Jewish museum - 4 synagogues and the cemetery, so that you can see Europe's biggest collection of sacred Jewish artifacts (3 hours tour, entry fee 300 Kc). Ironically Nazis gathered these to make a museum of an extinguished race! Do not forget to bring a stone into the old Jewish cemetery, instead of the flower.

    Minimal duration: 1 hour
    The modern heart of Prague is the square where the Velvet Revolution took place in 1989 - the Wenceslas square. This place serves us as a gallery of modern architecture. On the monumental building of the national museum at the top of the square, you can still see spots made by the bullet holes of the "brotherly" Soviet tanks during their invasion in 1968. On the steps of the museum the student Jan Palach set himself on fire in protest against the afore mentioned invasion, so we can revere his deed at his memorial.
    If you like the modern art, do not miss the hidden statue of the St. Wenceslass and a horse up site down. If you like we can walk to the Charles square or explore the modern town life of Prague people – local breweries, wine bars, shopping, the museum of communism, the Art nouveau museum … and much more.
