Czech History Mirrored by Prague’s Lesser Town

Sunday, March 19, 2023; 10.45 am

Lesser Town (Malá Strana) is one of the oldest parts of Prague where you can find many churches, palaces, monuments and gardens.

This walking tour will present the most important moments in the quarter’s history (and also in the history of the Czech lands) – from the foundation of the Lesser Town in the 13th century through the Hussite wars and  the restoration after the great fire in 1541 to the consequences of the European Reformation and later re-Catholicization or Enlightenment changes.

The walk will begin at the oldest core of the town, on the site of Pětikostelní Square, and will continue through Malostranské Square behind the medieval walls of the former fortification to the walls erected on the command of the most important Czech ruler – Charles IV – at the border with the Smíchov district.

Let’s go back in time and learn more about Czech history – its important historical figures, famous houses and amazing stories!

This event also takes place on Sunday, March 26 with Czech commentary.
