About the tour
This is a tour of the square and streets of the Old Town. The intricate network of the streets gives the impression of disorder but the streets do have their own historical order and have thus become historical stone time chronicles! This walk goesthrough the oldest part of Prague and will introduce you to the architectural development of the Old Town. We would like to assist you in the recognition of traditional architect styles and show you excellent examples of each building style, including the inside of some historic churches. This area of the Old Town has really created a unique collection of artistic workmanship.
We will describe to you some of the most dramatic European historic events, together with an interesting summary of social and economic facts. We start at the JEWISH QUARTER - walking past the Old cemetery and the synagogues - we will not forget to mention former and present life of Jewish community. Your guide has a number of old pictures and photographs of the area for you to compare with present day Prague.
We'll try to help you to understand their religion, customs, lifestyle and the source of great power the Jews always finaly found, to defence themselves and keep their traditions...
FRANZ KAFKA - had lived between 3 different worlds - Germans, Jews, Czechs, moved many times in his short life, we'll visit the places, which influenced his writing and will describe the ispirative atmosphere of the city at the beginning of 20 century... Prague doesn't let go, either of us. This old crone has claws...
20 meters left from the Astronomical Clock on the Old Town Square, your guide will hold up a beige umbrella with the name Prague Walks on it.
