What You Can Expect

Private Art Nouveau and Cubist Architecture Walking Tour in Prague

Municipal House

Prague is known for its historical landmarks that date as far back as the Gothic and Renaissance eras, but when you’re ready to move forward a few hundred years, this private walking tour of the city’s Art Nouveau and Cubist architecture introduces you to a more recent history of the city.

With your private guide, learn about the design aspects of Art Nouveau, from ornate light fixtures to curvy typography on signs that echoed the contemporary posters and magazines of the day. Spot interesting features on the façades of buildings, such as gingko biloba leaves, which reveal the style’s oriental influences. Visit the Lucerna bar, once owned by Vaclav Havel’s family, and see the elegant Grand Hotel Europa; both of these venues illustrate a moment of Czech optimism at the turn of the 20th century, signaling the country’s readiness to join Europe by participating in avant-garde trends.
