Private Art Nouveau Walking Tour of Prague
Prague, Czech Republic
- Skip the crowds: You do not have to go along with a crowd. This is a small, private, leisurely paced, 3-hour walking tour limited to six persons. You may book as an individual or part of a select group.
- Guided tour: Questions are encouraged. Your docent is a Ph.D. or MA level expert on the history of Prague who will lead your exploration without using a script. Whether you simply want to listen to a presentation or interact with your group, let your guide know your preferences.
- Cubist and Rondocubist architecture: During our leisurely 3-hour walk we will see numerous structural examples of the progressive Czech tastes during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
- House of the Black Madonna: Walk through the Josef Gočár–recognized as being the first cubist styled structure, the House of the Black Madonna gives three-dimensional form to the aesthetic concepts of cubism. The building currently serves as the Czech Museum of Cubism and houses the Grand Café Orient on the first floor. The building derives its name from a sculpture that was once located on the same property.
- Wenceslas Square and Grand Hotel Europa: We will stroll through New Town’s Wenceslas Square. Constructed in the 1300s, this ancient square is one of the boundaries of modern Prague. From here we can see the luxurious art nouveau inspired Hotel Europa and examples of architectural constructivism.
- Decide your destination: Your guide will let you know if customizing your itinerary is possible. If there is sufficient time and interest we may take a tram and visit places of architectural interest in other parts of Prague.
- Flexibility: The tickets purchased on GoBe can be used any time the during our published standard tour schedule. So, if your travel plans change, there is no need to rebook. Don't like the weather? Go another day. The choice is yours.
Please meet your guide just in front of the entrance to the House of the Black Madonna (now the Museum of Czech Cubism), which is located at Ovocny trh 19. You will see a cafe with tables and chairs out front and we will meet right by the doorway.
As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. In need of retail therapy after your tour? Your guide can advise you where to go in search of that "must have" souvenir to take home. Be sure to have some local currency and a backpack for all your great buys.
Plan to walk for approximately 2 miles at a gentle pace. This itinerary can be modified for your private group to accommodate wheelchairs and those with limited mobility. Let us know ahead of time at Hello@GoBe.com.
