Modern Architecture and Historical Heritage in Prague
Our small group walking tour of Prague encourages you to visit some of the hidden gems and medieval wonders you otherwise would have missed. When you take the time to explore Prague’s Lesser Town, your trip to Prague will be complete.
Also known as Lesser Town, Prague’s Little Quarter (Mala Strana) is often overlooked by tourists as they flock up to the castle. In the centuries after the first parts of Prague Castle were laid out, a neighbourhood started to form on the King’s route between the walled Old Town and the fortress.
The neighbourhood was officially established in 1252 and become home to stately palaces mixed with lanes of the homes of foreign artisans and merchants. Lesser Town was ravaged by fires and plagues, but is still going strong with both facades and charm and span hundreds of year.
Old Town Prague is bound to make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Early Prague was a crossroads where traders met, kingdoms were formed, and even a place where religions were started. Over the centuries, Old Town has overgrown its ancient walls but has masterfully retained its Medieval charm thanks to being largely untouched in WWII compared to other European capitals.
Hitting up all of the stops on our Prague Old Town and Mala Strana walking tour makes it easy to fall in love with Old Town Prague.
Prague’s Old Town Square has remained virtually untouched since the 10th century. Today, an ever-changing cast of musicians, protesters, dance troupes, punks, and vendors make the square as colorful as the buildings that surround it.
There are many small sites to discover as you walk and your guide points out all you need to see. The Prague Old Town and Mala Strana tour ends at the square where you can enjoy local beer and food!
