A new series of guided tours for Prague expats will introduce the history of the former independent town of Karlín. In recent years, this district has undergone a process of the so-called gentrification and nowadays it is one of the fanciest parts of inner Prague. Karlín’s rapid development was caused by the industrialization process. The tour reveals the oldest history of industrial Karlín and also the fast development in the 19th century, when many important public buildings were built – such as the parish Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius, or the Negrelli Viaduct. As part of the tour, the participants will also have a unique opportunity to visit the interesting interiors of the local Sokol union’s gym. The tour will be guided by Michal Šedivý.
- The meeting place is by the public toilets at the crossing of Sokolovská Street and U Nádražní lávky Street – on the edge of the small park on Karlínské náměstí. The telephone contact for the guide will be indicated on the ticket in case of emergency.
- The expected duration of the event is approx. 90 minutes.
- The capacity of the group is limited, tickets can only be purchased in advance.
