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.
