Overview

Want to immerse yourself in the culture, food and history of Bohemia? Then, this 4-hour Prague walking tour with food and drinks tastings is ideal. With an expert guide, discover how the colorful heritage of Bohemia has shaped the fabric and folklore of Prague and the Czech Republic, inspiring its food, politics and art. Learn about the history of Bohemia at Wenceslas Square, see quirky attractions such as David Cerny’s subversive sculptures; explore the gritty district of Vrsovice; and sample Bohemian classics such as sugar-dusted pastries and frothy local beers.
  • 4-hour Prague and Bohemian culture, history and food walking tour
  • View cool and quirky Prague sights such as David Cerny’s statues and the Žižkov TV Tower
  • Explore off-the-beaten track areas such as trendy Vršovice and Vinohrady
  • See Prague’s oldest pub and an absinthe café where the ‘green fairy’ inspired artists
  • Sample a sweet or salty Czech pastry, and tasty oblozene chlebicky sandwiches
  • Try two tasting beers at a microbrewery, plus Bohemian drinks and snacks at a Vršovice cafe
  • Learn how Bohemian culture and dissidents have shaped Prague’s history through the ages
Make your own way to the starting point in Prague and greet your guide. Then, begin your 4-hour walking tour at the equestrian statue of Wenceslas I in Wenceslas Square. Learn about this hallowed king, the 10th-century Duke of Bohemia, and discover why he was eulogized in the famous Christmas carol.

While you take in the statue, listen as your guide describes Prague’s role as the historical capital of Bohemia — the age-old region in the west of the Czech Republic — and how its culture is intertwined with the country’s fabric and folklore.

Hear, too, about Bohemia’s 20th-century dissidents, including the revered Václav Havel, the leader of the 1989 Velvet Revolution protests in Wenceslas Square who then became the Czech Republic’s president.

Afterward, amble down an alleyway famous for its swirling political graffiti,  and then kick off your explorations of Bohemia’s signature foods along a road stuffed with artisan bakeries.

Head inside one to sample a mouth-watering pastry, such as a trdelnik, and swing by Prague’s oldest pub, where the legendary local beer, Pilsner Urquell, has been a fixture since the mid-19th century.

Stroll by Prague’s most controversial artworks — statues by contemporary Czech artist David Cerny — and stop to taste some much-loved oblozene chlebicky, tasty open sandwiches adorned with meat or other morsels.

Take in a café where the ‘green fairy’ of absinthe inspired ground-breaking artists, and travel by metro to the Vršovice district. Here, head to an eatery for more delicacies and drinks, and continue to the hip-and-happening Žižkov area, home to the communist-era Žižkov TV Tower.

Gaze at David Cerny’s baby statues on the tower, and then relax with a couple of beer tastings at a Pivoteka microbrewery.

After a last food stop, your tour finishes at Old Town Square, leaving you free to continue exploring independently, perhaps with pointers on bars and eateries from your guide.

Our guide Sasa was very knowledgeable about the history of Prague and Chechia. He made our walk interesting and informative. Especially interesting was the “Pater Noster” elevator. I had seen it on Facebook and was glad to get to ride it. His choices of foods for us to try were things we really liked. Would hire him as a guide if we come again.

Prague History and Bohemian Culture Tour

I spent a most wonderful day with our guide Marc who introduced us to the most amazing stories about Bohemian history. No question was left unanswered. I enjoyed the relaxed and personal atmosphere. The best part, however, was lunch at a funny Czech pub the furniture of which reminded me of my grannys attic. Marcs great surprise was his amazing card tricks. I enjoyed every second of this tour.

We booked this 4 hour tour with 2 other friends and were very lucky to have Kaja as our guide. Our start point was on Wenceslas Square and from there she took us to areas that tourists and visitors rarely see. As a lifelong Prague citizen she was able to share her insights into recent history combined with what she shared about her family's life during difficult times: this gave our walk incredible depth and we came out of this appreciating the Czech spirit of survival. And their love of the arts, also, as this is a very cultured society. We were walked through passages,that we could never find on our own saw the Lucerna Music venue, the radio tower with the faceless babies crawling up and local neighborhoods. And more things that i can remember i need to look at all my photos!. We stopped for beer, wine and a filling lunch at a converted ice cream factory, had traditional Czech sandwich snacks at a deli where you order your open faced sandwich, drinks and eat standing so you can get back to,work!, and good Czech beer here too, or the Czech version of Coca Cola. We ate our way through town, laughing and talking and having serious discussions and sharing our lives with each other. We went to a busy local bakery to end our get together with delicious pastries, coffeee and tea. We chatted with little girls sitting at the communal table. And then Kaja brought us back to where we started, and there were many hugs all around. The day had whizzed by. We miss you, Kaja!! This walk was one of the highlights of our stay here. We hope to return to Prague!
