This is the best way to get to know the city of Prague in a fun and active way. You’ll see all of the best sights and more on our comfy bikes. Your expert guide will tell you all about the most interesting parts of Prague history and help point out the best places to visit along the way.
We start our tour at our shop in the Old Town and immediately head across the Vltava River. Once there, we’ll head onto a green island in the middle of the river where you’ll hear a story about the Czech National Theater. Next up, we hit the other side of town and go for a cruise through Kampa Park known for its famous baby statues by renowned Czech artist David Cerny. From here you’ll also get a great view of the Charles Bridge and it’s here that your guide will share the history of this world famous landmark built over 650 years ago.
Next, we’ll move on to the John Lennon Wall, a collection of street art which became a symbol of protest against the Communist government in the 1980’s. After this comes a stop outside the Kafka Museum where you will discover yet another provocative piece of art, once again from David Cerny. This one is done in a style which we promise you’ve never seen before!
Next, we head back across the river and dive right into the history of Rudolfinum and the city’s Jewish neighborhood. Tales from the Jew’s 1000 year history here in Prague will astound you, and we’ll take a look at the oldest synagogue in the city, the Jewish Cemetery, and discuss some of the legends of the Jewish neighborhood.
We’ll then go down Central Europe’s most expensive street towards the always breathtaking Old Town Square. Here, you’ll be regaled with stories about the square’s famous churches, ornate buildings, and hear stories about the city’s historical good guys and bad guys. And, of course, we’ll stop outside the famous Astrological Clock.
From here we will wind our way through the center to the gothic Powder Tower, followed by a stop at the more inspiring Estates Theater, famous for Mozart’s operas and where the movie Amadeus was filmed. The last major stop of the tour is one of the best – Wenceslas Square. This is the place where some of the most important events Prague’s history over the last century took place, from the Czech Uprising to the Velvet Revolution against Communism.
