As Far from the Madding Crowd as Possible (Prague)
Would you be interested in a guided walk (something like 7 km) around Prague with a local guy and evade the crowds as much as possible?
Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, the Jewish Museum, the Old-Town and Wenceslas Squares – these are Prague musts that people and tourist groups flock to.
Why don’t you see these places on your own and at your pace and do an alternative guided tour that will take you through the historical Prague on both banks of the Vltava river and add something special to the notoriously known?
The contents of the tour (almost exclusively down the hill or horizontal) can be adjusted but the guide suggests it should comprise the following:
- doing an itinerary that is in no guide
- seeing great places and hearing their stories
- having an occasional beer along the way
- learning something about the history and present of Prague and the Czech lands (including Jewish and German populations)
Kids don't pay.
