Full description
Get off the beaten track to explore sights hidden to most travelers, uncovering Prague's background stories that you won't hear on mainstream tours. Your local guides show you what’s authentic in the city, talk about Prague people, and take you to see neighborhoods where locals actually go out and live. Throughout the tour, you'll hear stories from Prague's modern history to understand the specific features of Czech society. Feel free to ask your guide for tips about cultural events in Prague, clubs, bars, and other sights to see. Tours are limited to small-groups for a more personal approach, and to preserve the unique atmosphere of the locations visited.

Meet your local guide at the meeting point to begin your walking tour. Break the ice in a cozy artistry café, enjoy a drink, and get a historical introduction into Czechoslovak/Czech history there (you'll explore sights located in the Newtown area later). Learn about Prague's modern history, including life in communist times compared with life today. Your guide will go beyond mainstream topics and talk about Prague's LGBT+ community, environmental policy, religion, social justice, refugees, and more.

Continue the tour to an authentic Žižkov neighborhood. On your way outside central Prague, you'll see one of the few legal graffiti zones in the city. You then take a short break at Parukářka park, for a chance to appreciate one of the best views of Prague. You'll discover some of the local community centers in the area and uncover social justice topics, together with topics touching gentrification, Prague urban development, and future visions of the city. You finish with a drink at one of local bars/cafes. Tour ends in the Žižkov neighborhood, however, the guide can take you back to the city center if preferred.
