Charles Bridge and the Little Town

We will start in the Square of the Knights of the Cross with a Red Star, from there will enter the Charles bridge, the oldest Prague bridge. You will hear when and how the bridge was built, some interesting stories and legends. We will stop in front of the statue of St. John of Nepomuk and I will explain why so many people touch the statue. From the bridge we will descend to the Kampa Island and then walk by the John Lennon wall (during the communist times a place of protest) through a quiet Square of the Grand Prior, by the Church of Virgin Mary under the Chain, the main church of the Order of the Knights of Malta, to the Little Town Square. Here we will stop in front of the Church of St. Nicholas, once a Jesuit church, one of the most impressive Prague churches. We can walk in and admire an incredible Baroque interior of this church.

Afterwards we will walk by the palaces in which today the House of Representatives of the Czech Parliament has its offices, seeing the New Castle steps on the way and soon reaching the Wallenstein Square. The Wallenstein Palace in the square, today the seat of the Senate of our Parliament was built in the early 17th century by Albrecht of Wallenstein, a general of the Habsburg army. A pretty garden belonging to this palace is open to the public free of charge from April till the end of October. Our walk will continue from there through another charming part of the Little Town. Along the way you will see the narrowest street in Prague, I will point out to you the Museum of Franz Kafka and finally we will come to the Certovka, a man made canal.

This part is called “Prague Venice”. The houses built along the canal may resemble those of Venice. Here, under the Charles Bridge our walking tour comes to an end.
