About the Tour

Explore one of the most important quarters of Prague, which is almost entirely unknown to visitors. You will receive a first-hand experience of the industrial past and the recent development. We will look behind the façades and learn about floods as well as Prague's Communist past. The route goes along pavements and can be managed with a pram or reduced mobility.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on voicemap.me and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.

Major Landmarks

  • The Prague Market

  • DOX Centre for Contemporary Art

Directions to Starting Point

We start at the tram stop called "Pražská tržnice", which is about 15 minutes from the centre of Prague. If you're travelling on the metro, use the red "C" line and get off at the stop called "Vltavská". Then walk follow the tram lines with the river on your right until you reach the tram stop, or climb on any tram leaving in that direction.
