What You Can Expect

Prague History and Bohemian Culture Tour

See some of David Cerny's subversive statues on this Bohemian culture tour

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. 

Please note: the order of activities above may alter on the day of your tour.

We greatly enjoyed Travis's Bohemian's state of mind tour.
As an American living in Prague, he provided a unique perspective and interesting observations of the city. Travis took us to lunch at a funky and quirky restaurant, with delicious food. He even bought us ice cream.
He also recommended other restaurants that were off the beaten path, away from the tourist mob.
We also received from him a list of books by Czech authors to further explore Bohemia.
We highly recommend his tour.

This is the second time I have taken this tour and I can't believe it has gotten better. Niki gave a fabulous tour that was informative and entertaining. This tour covers many things not covered on the usual city walking tours. The addition of local foods was a highlight.

Very well done! the guide was very passionate and you could tell he really liked what he was doing and had a love for the city. We went to different parts of the city than most tours. I loved trying all the different local foods around town.

AMAZING. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the past and present of Prague. It was hot, but we wouldn't have thought of quitting the tour since it was so fantastic. We walked through neighborhoods and stopped at a neighborhood outdoor market for a juice and some other food tastings. Then off to a wonderful brewery for a taste of Pilsner and some wonderful food. Would love to do another tour and cover other areas with this guide. Thank you for a great day.

We really enjoyed this tour because we were able to explore areas inside and
outside of town center and learn about Czech culture and food. Tereza was an
excellent guide. We loved sampling delicious Czech food - traditional and newer cuisine. Tereza introduced us to an interesting Czech coke called Kofola and light, fresh open sandwiches called chlebicky, as well as, all the other activities listed. Highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning about Czech culture.

Couldn't have asked for a better guide than Nikky who was very engaging and in depth in sharing the beginnings of the Velvet Revolution, up to the recent death of the beloved President Havel, to the bohemian lifestyle of Czechs. The itinerary, save for the sweltering heat, was perfect- we walked from the Wenceslas Square to some sidestreets, and took the metro to a quiet suburb, where we had lunch at a cafe with very few locals around no other tourists except us and later found our way to a farmer's market..Oh and thanks to Nikky's tip on a secluded jazz bar in Old Town! This was definitely a highlight of my Prague visit!

This tour was very interesting and informative and I would recommend it!

We were lucky in that the group only consisted on my husband, son and myself and the guide was able to tailor the tour to our interests. He showed us many interesting sites including churches, clock, parks, sites of demonstrations, Jewish quarter and provided a thorough history of the events in Czech history including the second world war, cold war and velvet revolution of which I knew very little about before.

We had lunch with our guide in a very atmospheric Czech restaurant and sampled the local food and beer!
