On Sunday, March 19 at 10.45 am, we are holding a special walking tour of the Lesser Town (Malá Strana) for English-speaking expats. Taking place in one of the oldest parts of Prague, the tour will focus on Czech history and its important historical figures, famous houses, and captivating stories.
The walking tour will present the most important moments in the quarter’s history and in the history of the Czech lands. Topics will include the foundation of the Lesser Town in the 13th century, the Hussite wars, and the restoration of the quarter after the great fire in 1541. Visitors will also learn about the consequences of the European Reformation and re-Catholicization as well as the changes during the period of Enlightenment.
“The tour will begin at Pětikostelní Square, the oldest core of the Lesser Town, and will continue via Malostranské Square behind the medieval walls of a former fortification to the walls erected on the command of Charles IV at the border with the Smíchov district,” says Michal Šedivý, guide of the tour.
Because this tour is in English, we would like to invite long-term residents and foreign visitors of Prague to join us! The expected duration of the tour is approximately 90 minutes.
