Romanesque up to modern style buildings of Prague with a private guide


A walk through 1000 years of fascinating architecture history in a chronological sequence in the area of the Old Town and the New Town of Prague - it comprises examples of the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Roccoco style, Classisism, Neo-styles of the end of 19th century, Art Noveau, Cubism, Rondo-cubism, and modern styles of the first and second half of the 20th century - the last example will be the famous "Dancing House" (1996).

Itinerary

Prague is a textbook or achitecture. Thanks to the fact that it was not destroyed during WW2 and that its beauty was redicovered after communist regime by granting it to be on UNESCO world's cultural heritage list in 1992, we can admire many buildings of different styles of architecture at relatively very small area of the city. During this tour we can also see buildings in a chronological order - from the oldest (Rotunda of Holy Cross (1125) to the newest (Dancing House (1996)).

A Recent Review of this tour

Such a full and amazing morning. Katerina was on time, personable and a wealth of knowledge. As a mother of two she took to our girls like a fish to water and engaged them with stories of local life. She was unbelievably on the ball and entertaining as well. Couldn't more highly recommend and thank her for our 4 hour tour!
