    What to Expect
    Meet your local guide at 1pm in the city center and get ready for an insider's look at Prague's Old Town and Jewish Quarter, also known as Josefov.

    As you head off on your small group walking tour of Prague´s historical highlights, listen as your guide recounts the stories concealed behind the house signs and statues of the Powder Tower, Municipal House, St.Nicholas Church, and Old Town Hall with its famous astronomical clock.

    Follow your guide into heart of the Old Town, the old Jewish Ghetto, and listen to fascinating stories about 10 centuries of Jewish life in the area, including the tales of Rabi Loew’s legendary monster Golem; details on Jewish habits and traditions, and the life and work of world-famous Prague-born Jewish writer Franz Kafka. Admire several synagogues, including the oldest still-active one in Europe, and the Jewish Town Hall located near the Old Cemetery.

    Be sure to ask any lingering questions before finishing your tour back in the city center 1.5 hours after you set out.
