What To Expect
Discover the Bohemian in you!
Our Bohemia tour of Prague starts, at the statue of the Duke of Bohemia, martyr, and patron saint Wenceslas. Throughout the tour, you'll learn about various influences on Prague, including architectural, art, and political influences.
Begin the tour by hearing how a chainsmoking Bohemian dissident championed the liberation from communist rule and lead the nation to freedom. Even with freedom, some things never change. Find out what exactly in a favourite local passageway full of old world magic and subtle modern day resistance with provocative sculptures and graffiti.
Kicking off the sampling aspect of the tour, the first taste of Prague will be the best of the daily fresh specials offered in the passage of densely populated specialty food and pastry shops.
Next in Bohemian Prague, pass by the oldest pub in Prague that has been serving the most famous Czech beer, Pilsner Urquell, since 1843. Then head to an area favorited during the '60s by the underground movement and dubbed the Bermuda Triangle by dissidents. There, walk in the the footsteps of the always interesting, but never politically correct modern Bohemian artist David Cerny. Then it's time to indulge in the most popular after-work snack; an open-faced sandwich that we think may even beat out the famous Scandinavian version (although we'll leave it to you to be the official judge). From there, check out a legendary café where the green fairy inspired many great artists and writers .
Next up, hop on the tram and head toward the home of the modern bohemian movement, the cool, gritty neighbourhood of Vrsovice. Choose one of the amazing cafés to stop at and taste local snacks and drinks and revel in good company.
With happy bellies, burn it off with a walk in the park in beautiful Vinohrady as we venture toward the funky Zizkov district. Here, learn about the absurd writer Jaroslav Hasek, fierce general Jan Zizka, and the families that hid Czech commandos from the Nazis - and you won't be able to avert your gaze from what's been called the second ugliest building in the whole world.
Finally, finish off our Prague tour with a stop for beer at the Pivoteka microbrewery and another sampling of fresh offerings from a nearby farmers' market, bakery, or gourmet shop. End the tour at a beautiful square named after the Hussite King, but where you go next is up to you. Time to unleash your own free-spirited Bohemian! If you're looking for ideas, we can point you to a minigolf course, direct you to a walk through a park with an amazing view, or point out nearby beer gardens and a pub with 30 beers on tap.
