A 16th-century engineering marvel will guide our way from the river to one of Prague's most picturesque parks. On our tour, I will show you some hidden signs of the tunnel below our feet. You will find a beer garden with a perfect view over the old town, Europe's oldest wooden carousel, the place where the first Czech electric tramway was launched and streets full of garden restaurants. You'll learn where the world's largest Stalin statue was located and why many buildings on our way had to be reinforced with wooden beams.
I'm living in Prague for over 15 years, working as a journalist, co-founder of an NGO, blogger and software developer.

Directions to Starting Point
We'll start at the bottom of the wide flight of stairs on Nábřeží Edvarda Beneše, in front of the bridge called "Čechův most". It's about 10 minutes north of the Old Town Square. The stairs lead up to the Metronome monument, but we will start down at street level. The nearest tram stop is only a few meters away, and is also called "Čechův most".
