Wenceslas Square - the monument of St. Wenceslas
Skip the standard Old Town tours and join me for a 2.5-hour walk in the historical and artistic New Town of Prague
Meet me by the "Horse" at Wenceslas Square and learn more about this fascinating place and dramatic events which happened there in the 20th century. Have a relaxing walk surrounded by pearls of such architectural styles as Neo-Renaissance, Art-Nouveau or Socialist Realism.
Pass through a hidden Baroque garden and little known passages and feel amazed by the controversial modern art and unusual technical landmarks. See some of the most amazing examples of Czech cubism, unique in the entire world, and move on to the biggest square in the Czech Republic to admire the medieval New Town Hall with its terrifying history.
Then stroll towards the riverside of Vltava to discover the fabulous Dancing House and get to know the brilliant ideas behind it. The tour ends by the National Theatre, 5-10 minutes away from Charles Bridge.
