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.

  • 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.
