    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Welcome to Prague! This tour will take you down the historic King's Road, the coronation route of the medieval kings of Bohemia. It starts at a famous shopping mall, and will take you through the winding streets of the old town. You'll pass by places like Kafka's birth house, an observatory where Kepler once worked, a statue-lined bridge, and finally, up to the largest castle in the world. Not only will you learn the histories of many of these famous buildings, but you'll also find out where to change money, where to buy some beer, and what that delicious bread thing is that everyone's eating. It's a pretty extensive route, so bring your walking shoes, your camera, and have fun!

    Powder Tower, Old Town Square, the Clocktower (Orloj), Charles Bridge, the Castle

    Startingpoint Directions to starting point

    The starting point is pretty easy to find. You can take the metro or tram, and get out at Namesti Republic. We'll start facing the Palladium, at Namesti Republiky 1.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    Palladium, Old Town Square, Clementinum, St. Nicholas Church, the Castle

    Best time to walk:

    I recommend coming at dark because there are less tourists around, but only if you're not interested in the museums, as they close at 6. If you want to visit any of the museums along the route, then give yourself plenty of time before 6.

    Precautions:

    Pickpockets are known to operate a lot in the Old Town Square and on Charles Bridge, so keep your eye on your belongings in those areas. Otherwise Prague is a pretty safe and low-crime town.
