This tour takes you through the historic city centre. It starts at the Prašná brána (Powder Tower), at the site of the one-time Royal Court from where the coronation processions set off, then proceeding through the Old Town, across the Gothic Charles Bridge towards Prague Castle and St. Vitus’s Cathedral. The tour is divided into two parts, each of which can take either 30 minutes (if you don’t look around you too much), two hours (if you stop at the recommended sites) or four hours (if you decide to look around the corner or enter some of the buildings).
The history of the Old Town of Prague dates back to Romanesque times. The walls surrounding the town were erected in the 1230s, under King Wenceslas I
