Further along from the Old Town Square is the unique building 'At the Black Madonna' from the early 20th century, built in a mind-breaking Cubist architectural style and the Estate Theatre, where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed the world premier of his opera 'Don Giovanni'. The tour then goes on to the Municipal House, a beautiful Art Nouveau building and a national cultural landmark decorated by Jan Preisler, Max Svabinsky, and Alfons Mucha.

Prague Modern Art - 20th century architecture, design and art
We are modern people and we like modern architecture. Therefore this tour will emphasize the most important developments in Prague over the last hundred years.

We will start in the early 20th century and the Art Nouveau architecture represented by the Municipal House, the birthplace of modern Czech art and a national cultural landmark decorated by Jan Preisler, Max Svabinsky, and Alfons Mucha.

Next in line is the unique Prague Cubist architecture, which has shaken the foundations of world architecture and changed our perception of modernity forever. The best example is the house 'At the Black Madonna' built by Josef Gocar in 1911, with its elegant Grand Cafe Orient which symbolizes the unique Czech contribution to the Cubist movement, not only in architecture but in furniture, pottery and glass.

The tour will also take you to significant Rondo-Cubist buildings such as the Bank of Czechoslovak Legions with its stylish interior or the Adria Palace, built by Pavel Janak and Josef Zasche before the First World War.

Also included in the tour are examples of Functionalist architecture such as the Bata department store on Wenceslas Square which was built after the formation of an independent Czechoslovakia in 1918 and reflects the countries booming economy of the period. Wenceslas Square and its surroundings is not only an important place in the modern history of the Czech Republic but is also a showcase of all important architectural styles of the 20th century.

The most amusing examples of contemporary Czech art are no doubt the provocative statues by David Cerny, who is best known for painting a monument of a Russian occupation tank pink after the fall of communism in 1989 or for his kinetic statue of two peeing men, but there is so much more :-) ...

As a reminder of the luckier enterprises of the communist architecture we can see the building of the former department store Maj, built in the style of 'High Tech' in 1975.

Last but not least, we will admire the graceful pose of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, captured by F. O.Gehry in his dynamic 'Dancing Building' thus bringing Prague art and architecture into the 21st century.

Jewish Prague
Spanish SynagogueOld Jewish CemeteryOld New Synagogue
It is said that Prague has been standing on 3 legs - Czech, German and Jewish. This our tour will focus on the latter cultural influence, so often forgotten, neglected or marginalized, but so interesting and influential.

Prague's Jewish Quarter is home to the biggest concentration of historical synagogues in Europe.

We will start our tour through the thousand years of Jewish history in Prague at the recently restored jewel of the Jewish Quarter - The Spanish Synagogue. This synagogue, with lavish and intricate Moorish styled decorations and functionalist additions from the 1920's has been the centre of the Prague's Jewish reform movement.

You will also see the world famous Old Jewish cemetery with thousands of clustered tombstones and pictorial symbols. The cemetery dates back to the Middle Ages and is also one of the most fascinating sites of the Jewish Quarter. It is also the final resting place of Rabbi Loew (Prague Maharal) the great Talmudic scholar, Jewish mystic, philosopher and perhaps the creator of the legendary Golem.

The tour further takes you to the other important Synagogues in the Jewish Quarter:

The Klausen Synagogue - once intended by the Nazi's to become "The Museum of an extinguished race".

The Maisel Synagogue - built by an influential philanthropist and communal leader in the Jewish ghetto, Mordecai Meisel.

The Pinkas Synagogue, which has been altered to a truly moving memorial to the Czech victims of the Holocaust. This memorial also houses a mesmerizing yet deeply disturbing collection of paintings by the Children interned in the Terezin concentration camp.

We will also see together the Burial Brotherhood House, which gives an interesting look at the burial customs of the Prague Jewish community as well as at other aspects of social life.

The tour then finishes at the Old New Synagogue, a rare example of Romanesque architecture and the second oldest synagogue in this part of the world. Considered the centre of the Prague Jewish community for centuries, it is today, unfortunately, the only synagogue with regular services.

Evening tour of Prague
Charles BridgeMonument to the victims of communismPrague Castle across the Vltava River
Did you find yourself too busy during the day that you have missed seeing the Prague highlights? Don't worry! To see Prague at its most beautiful it must be seen in the evening.

We offer you a tour around the magnificent sights of the historical centre in the evening hours. You can learn all about the history and the amazing architecture while watching the sunset over Charles Bridge.

The once fully packed streets of the Lesser Quarter now become quiet and enigmatic; the synagogues of the Jewish Quarter feel like revealing to you something more about their mystical heritage.

You could almost feel as if Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has just disappeared by the next corner, maybe he went to listen to the tones of his Don Giovanni coming from the Estate Theatre.

And when it becomes completely dark you can see how the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle are lit by different colors.

The times of the tour can be adjusted according to your requirements. Just bear in mind that darkness falls in Prague around 9pm in summer, and as early as 4pm around Christmas.
