    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    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.

    Startingpoint 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".

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    Beer garden at Letná Chateau, National Technical Museum, restaurant Phở u Letné, café Pod Lipami, park café Šlechtovka

    Best time of day:

    The best time is from morning to late evening. The museums are closed on Mondays, but the tour is just as enjoyable without paying them a visit.


    The area we'll be walking through is not very touristy, and it's very safe. Just watch out for the traffic as you cross the roads.

    Terrible ... wow it’s just walking ... almost nothing to see ... poor narration ... no reason to start where it does ... wow this was disappointing! We just quit and moved on

    I'm sorry about your bad experience. Please remember that the product description and the preview gave you all information about the narration, the starting point (the place was chosen so that it's easy to find) and the route (we first need to climb that hill before we can see anything interesting) before you bought the tour. I trust that this information helps potential buyers understand what they can expect so that they don't buy anything they actually don't want.
