Following the footprints of scientists


Have you ever heard that Prague has been a huge scientific centre since the 16th century? Prague as a capital of the Holy Roman Empire was a golden place for alchemists and later for scientists. It is a golden place for Alchemist nowadays too!

Everything in Prague was always concentrated around the Old Town Square, even the old underground laboratories of the 16th century! That is why the houses of Doppler, Bolzano and Einstein's are located in the citycentre. During the tour we can meet Kepler and Heirovsky in the places they lived. I will tell you the secrets of the oldest university in Prague - the Charles University.

The next part of the tour will bring us to a modern district of Prague - Dejvicka. I will show you the UCT in Prague where I studied at and the CTU in Prague. We visit the modern NTK technical library and meet many famous scientists including Tesla, Prelog and many others.

This is a unique tour in Prague which I created based on my knowledge and studies in UCT Prague.

A Recent Review of this tour

Great, Great job Victoria! As a scientist I loved the opportunity to see a different side of Prague. Young Victoria exceeded our expectations and was easily willing to make the accommodations that were needed for my husbands limited walking ability. She's done her research and prep to make something truly unique and worthy of your time. Approved by two Scientists!
