 Turn 'n' Tour of Prague's Old Town Square

English







Thanks for your interest in noambit’s “turn ‘n’ tour” of Prague’s Old Town Square. Like all of our tours we’re going to tell you about the sights, history and nuances of your destination. Unlike our traditional “talk about” walking tours however, this time you can relax in pretty much one place for most of the tour. That’s right, it’s sort of an anti-walking walking tour…a “tired of walking” , walking tour…but I digress.
On this tour we’ll slowly turn clockwise around the historic Old Town Square in the Staré Město of the city of 100 spires. You’ll “walk away” (pardon the pun) with a thorough understanding of the beginnings of the religious reformation and how Czech local John Hus played an important role. We’ll explore the Church of St. Nicolas and discuss Baroque architecture, peer into the life of author Franz Kafka, marvel at the masculine and feminine Spires of the Týn Church and even learn how to tell time on the Astronomical Clock. And of course, it wouldn’t be a noambit tour if we didn’t let you in on some historical, architectural and hidden nuances that most travelers never hear about.

Your tour will come with a printable PDF map created exclusively for this guide. We’ve even color matched it with the beautiful pastel colors of the homes and buildings you’ll be learning about.

On this tour you’ll see and hear about:

• The John Hus Memorial
• The religious reformation before The Religious Reformation
• Who was Franz Kafka and why did he circle the square
• The Church of St. Nicolas (yep, that’s the one we call Santa)
• Baroque Architecture
• The House at the Stone Bell
• The Kinský Palace
• Communist take overs
• The Týn Church
• The background of the many unique homes surrounding the square
• The Prague Meridian line and Marian Column
• The beheading of 27 protestants
• The Old Town Hall
• The Astronomical Clock
• Where to go after your done with the tour
• And much more
