Walk through the famous Lesser Town area with a highly educated private guides enthusiastic about art and history.

Highlights:

  • Walk and learn about the Lesser Town (Malá Strana) district which is the second oldest in Prague. After fire burnt down the town in 1541, it had to be rebuilt from scratch again - and that´s how the jewel of Baroque architecture, today´s Lesser Town, came into existence. 
  • Pass by the exquisite Baroque palaces surrounded by historic gardens. Many of them became the seats of Embassies (e.g. the US embassy, the British Embassy). This typical Baroque landscape is the key element of the extraordinary beauty of this district. Many of them became the seats of Embassies (e.g. the US embassy, the British Embassy). 
  • See the Church of Our Lady the Victorious. The latter houses a miraculous statuette of the Baby Jesus of Prague.
  • Visit Kampa Island: Hidden corners of Lesser Town invite to romantic walks, one of them will lead us to Kampa Island with its charming millwheels. Or we can take a walk in the area near the so called Devil´s stream (Čertovka). This area is also known as the Prague Venice – little ships can enter into it and approach the former mill´s wheel. From Kampa we can take a staircase to one of the most emblematic sights of the city – The Charles Bridge.
  • Visit St. Nicholas Church

It houses an interesting selection of paintings by Karel Škréta, an important Czech Baroque painter, and also an impressive Baroque organ.
