Then you will continue by visiting the Prague Castle and the Prague’s most dominant feature – Saint Vitus’ Cathedral. After a 75-minute walk (approx.) with our guide, we drive you to the pier on the Vltava River. You board a tour boat and will have the chance to relax or to buy refreshments while admiring the beauty and panorama of Prague from a different perspective. From the upper deck you will also see the world renowned old Charles Bridge. Relaxed, you will continue taking a short walk through the Jewish Quarter to the Old Town Square (Astronomical Clock, Týn Church), where this tour will be finished.

We start by taking a walk through the Old Town and then we enter the former Jewish Quarter at the house where Franz Kafka was born. Your guide will acquaint you with the history of the former ghetto and of the oldest synagogue in Central Europe – the Old New School. You will tread among the gravestones of the centuries old Jewish Cemetery and visit some of the synagogues that are parts of the extensive and unique Prague Jewish Museum complex.
ČESKÝ KRUMLOV - UNESCO
Český Krumlov, a medieval town in South Bohemia, has retained its almost fairytalelike atmosphere to the present days and deserves its being on the UNESCO list of cultural heritage sites. The historical centre comprises narrow, winding streets and lanes full of gothic, renaissance, and baroque buildings from the times of the Rožmberk, Eggenberg and Schwarzenberg noble families. You will enjoy a walk through the Down with our guide and a lunch in a local restaurant. You will visit The Castle Museum and have the unique opportunity to peek into the secrets of Castle depositories, which are reminiscent of the most important events related to owners Krumlov estate.
KARLOVY VARY AND MOSER FACTORY
Karlovy Vary is probably the best known spa town in the Czech Republic. Its history begins in the 14th century, at the time of the reign of Charles IV. The healing powers of the local springs have been tested by such greats as by the Russian Tsar Peter the Great and German poet Goethe. Karlovy Vary also became famous thanks to the local manufacturing of world renowned Moser crystal, Carlsbad porcelain or the herb liqueur Becherovka. After arriving to Karlovy Vary your group will visit the Moser factory and then be taken on a tour of the town centre by our guide to see the most famous geyser Vřídlo (Sprudel) – gushing its mineral water to a height of almou 12 metres. After lunch you will be free to explore the town on your own.
