Languages: German, English, Dutch
Quality Verified Registered on October 20, 2023

Walking through an open-air museum with the guides of I Love Praag Dobrý den I am Huig den Boer owner of I love Praag. I am a young Dutch man in my thirties who previously worked in the healthcare sector and worked with great passion as a bus driver in and around the beautiful city of Utrecht, the most beautiful city in the Netherlands. In addition to this job, I worked as one of the permanent guides of I Love Praag in Prague and first did tours as a hobby (15 years) and now professionally in the Czech city of Prague. This is because I am in love with this European capital. Since 2023 I live completely in Prague. No matter how beautiful a city like Rome or Berlin is, I don't immediately catch a spark like when I leave Prague airport. All our guides speak fluent English, German and Dutch. Are you going on tour with me or with my colleagues in Prague?

Tour description

When you talk about Prague you usually talk about the old town because the idea is that all the history of the city is hidden there.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The new city is almost as old and was actually built only 100 years later. There is therefore just as much to see in the new city, if not even more than in the old city.

The tour starts at the St. Ludmilla Church, the most important and special church in the city of Prague after St. Vitus Cathedral.
 
The tour then continues towards Wenceslas Square to admire the special National Museum and of course to get to know the whole background and history of Saint Wenceslas.

During the tour we also pass some works of art by the Czech most famous and infamous artist David Cerny.

To end the tour we dive into Operation Anthropoid, one of the most important operations in Czech history. The attack on SS commander Reinhard Heydrich was in any case the most important event in the Czech Republic during the Second World War.

Since we are in the area, we end the tour at the dancing house.

Tired from the tour? No problem because you are at Naplavka, the nicest terraces on the quay of the Vltava River. Here you can relax by the water.
