Prague History and Bohemian Culture Tour
From US$65.93
Overview
Want to immerse yourself in the culture, food and history of Bohemia? Then, this 4-hour Prague walking tour with food and drinks tastings is ideal. With an expert guide, discover how the colorful heritage of Bohemia has shaped the fabric and folklore of Prague and the Czech Republic, inspiring its food, politics and art. Learn about the history of Bohemia at Wenceslas Square, see quirky attractions such as David Cerny’s subversive sculptures; explore the gritty district of Vrsovice; and sample Bohemian classics such as sugar-dusted pastries and frothy local beers.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the starting point in Prague and greet your guide. Then, begin your 4-hour walking tour at the equestrian statue of Wenceslas I in Wenceslas Square. Learn about this hallowed king, the 10th-century Duke of Bohemia, and discover why he was eulogized in the famous Christmas carol.

While you take in the statue, listen as your guide describes Prague’s role as the historical capital of Bohemia — the age-old region in the west of the Czech Republic — and how its culture is intertwined with the country’s fabric and folklore.

Hear, too, about Bohemia’s 20th-century dissidents, including the revered Václav Havel, the leader of the 1989 Velvet Revolution protests in Wenceslas Square who then became the Czech Republic’s president.

Afterward, amble down an alleyway famous for its swirling political graffiti,  and then kick off your explorations of Bohemia’s signature foods along a road stuffed with artisan bakeries.

Head inside one to sample a mouth-watering pastry, such as a trdelnik, and swing by Prague’s oldest pub, where the legendary local beer, Pilsner Urquell, has been a fixture since the mid-19th century.

Stroll by Prague’s most controversial artworks — statues by contemporary Czech artist David Cerny — and stop to taste some much-loved oblozene chlebicky, tasty open sandwiches adorned with meat or other morsels.

Take in a café where the ‘green fairy’ of absinthe inspired ground-breaking artists, and travel by metro to the Vršovice district. Here, head to an eatery for more delicacies and drinks, and continue to the hip-and-happening Žižkov area, home to the communist-era Žižkov TV Tower.

Gaze at David Cerny’s baby statues on the tower, and then relax with a couple of beer tastings at a Pivoteka microbrewery.

After a last food stop, your tour finishes at Old Town Square, leaving you free to continue exploring independently, perhaps with pointers on bars and eateries from your guide. 

Please note: the order of activities above may alter on the day of your tour.
