    What to Expect
    Begin your small-group walking tour at a meeting point in central Prague. Meet your guide, and set out to explore the Czech Republic’s capital, with its rich 1,000-year-old history.

    Start with a stroll through the atmospheric Old Town. Along the way, hear intriguing nuggets about Prague’s past, including the triumphs and tragedies that have shaped the city’s destiny through the ages.

    See the Bethlehem Chapel where Czech national hero Jan Hus preached in the 1400s, and pass other historical landmarks as you wend your way to Wenceslas Square, one of Prague’s best-known squares.

    View the bustling square and hear how it presided over two of the country’s watershed events in the 20th century — the 1968 Prague Spring and the 1989 Velvet Revolution against Soviet rule. See the statue of King Wenceslas that acted as a rallying point for protestors, and learn about the Czechs who fought, and died, for their country’s freedom.

    Continue past the Estates Theatre, where Mozart dazzled opera-goers in 1787 when he conducted the premiere of Don Giovanni, and see Charles University — one of Europe’s oldest universities, having been established in 1348.

    Spill into the Old Town Square to see its pastel-colored houses, churches and Astronomical Clock, and refuel with a drink (own expense) before heading for the Jewish Quarter.

    Learn about Prague’s long and rich Jewish heritage as you explore, and pause to view the Old Jewish Cemetery and Old New Synagogue, Europe’s oldest working synagogue.

    Finish with stellar views of two of Prague’s iconic sights. Stroll to the Vltava River and gaze out at mighty Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge — a vision of stone statues and graceful arches.

    Your tour concludes in central Prague.
