About the Tour

This tour will take you around the New Town treasures. We start on Wenceslas Square - a square of not only revolution, but bursting with culture and hidden gems. From the square, we will disappear into network of passageways and take a shortcut to through the garden to National Avenue. There you'll discover how the Velvet Revolution started and take in a range of architectural styles such as Art Nouveau, Functionalism, Decorativism, Neo-renaissance and Post Modernism - all in one avenue! This is a tour of culture, history, memories and excellent cafés with spirit. Prague is one of the most entrancing and timeless cities of Europe. The tour will show you a different, personal and unique view through the eyes of a passionate local.

I was born in West Bohemia, grew up by the German border in communist regime order, but revolution arrived right in time, when I was 18! I traveled some, 27 years ago I settled in Prague. My company Prague Walks is as old as my daughter - 22 years. I love to tell stories about Prague, my home country, my personal stories related to the topic too. I am a history buff, studied History and English at Pilsen University. I am a tour leader based in Prague, operating around Europe. I am passionate about music, dance, culture, art in general, local cuisines....

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.
