Discover 20th-century Prague on a private 3-hour art nouveau and Cubist architecture walking tour, led by a historian guide. Learn about the distinctive architectural styles and the social context in which they emerged by visiting such art nouveau gems as the Municipal house and Lucerna Music Bar.
Meet your private guide in Prague's Old Town and enjoy a private morning or afternoon walking tour, leaving at 10am or 2pm. Spot and learn about the distinctive features of art nouveau; from gingko bilabo leaves on façades, revealing the style’s oriental influences, to elaborate interior light fixtures and the curvy typography on building signs that echoes contemporary magazine and poster graphics.
Walk from the Old Town to Lucerna Music Bar, which was once owned by former president Vaclav Havel’s family, and then to the elegant Grand Hotel Europa. Both buildings are prime examples of a moment of Czech optimism at the beginning of the 20th century, which signaled the region’s readiness to join Europe by participating in European-wide avant-garde. Finish your tour in the center of Prague, ready to explore further or relax in a restaurant.
