This tour includes all of the Prague's must see sights and explains history from the city's foundation to the time of the Velvet Revolution and Rolling Stones setting up lights in Prague Castle. We will start at the Powder Tower, the royal entrance to the Old Town where we explain the basics of Prague's history and show you the balcony from which the independence of Czechoslovakia was declared. Next we will follow the Royal Way to see the House of the Black Madonna, The Estates Theater and Charles University. We will explain to you why Mozart loved Prague so much and why is it so hard to learn Czech. After this we will do what most locals do when they need to avoid the crowds rushing to work - we will walk through the hidden passages of Old Town to make our way to one of the most haunted churches of this city, St. James's Basilica. After we see the interiors of this most beautiful church in Old Town, we will have a short break in a cafe. Next we will explore the Jewish Quarter, tell you the story of the immortal Golem and see the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Old New Synagogue. We will then see the show of the Astronomical Clock after which we will cross Charles Bridge and finish the tour at the John Lennon Wall with the story of the Velvet Revolution and why Rock'n'Roll was considered a weapon used against the communist party during the last years of that era.
