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 goes through 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 architectonic 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.
