Return Details

Národní 22, 110 00 Praha 1-Nové Město, Czechia

Cafe Louvre opened in 1902 and you can still enjoy the unique atmosphere of this historical, grand café, as Franz Kafka, Albert Einstein and T. G. Masaryk knew it.

Meet your historian guide at a centrally-located point in Prague and get an insider's view on local design and architecture. Spot elegant gingko leaves on art nouveau façades, and find out how Eastern art and aesthetics influenced the movement, from elaborate light fixtures to the distinctively curvy typography.

Stop by the House of Black Madonna, to admire its unique cubist style, and the Obecni Dum, an iconic art nouveau landmark. Learn about the groundbreaking technologies used during construction, from central heating and ventilation to drinking water, hydraulic elevators, steam-powered laundry, and an intercom system. See the dramatic contrasts between art nouveau and cubism — Prague was once of Europe’s greatest centers for cubist art, and you’ll find crystal-like forms and pyramids throughout the city.

Visit the stunning Lucerna Bar to get a glimpse of turn-of-the-century Czech optimism and avant-garde movements, then learn how fierce European wars changed the course of Prague history. Finish your tour in the heart of Prague, close to restaurants and attractions.

Our guide was personable, informative, and engaging. He intertwined history and development in an easy to understand manner. We enjoyed doing this tour at the beginning of our trip because the knowledge we gained enhanced our later experiences.

Must do tour while in Prague. Amazing architecture, history, and tour. It helps frame and enhance Prague experience. All in our family truly enjoyed it (age range from 19 to 76). Vadim keeps you engaged through interesting storytelling, personalized and interactive tour. Highly recommend it!

Fabulous tour!

This was a fantastic tour & I highly recommend it even if you are not into architecture. It weaves the architecture with the history of the country. My guide is also the owner & was an excellent source of information. I ended up going back to 3 of the places that also had restaurants to eat & enjoy the interior. All also had good food! Next time in a city that they do tours, I would go on one.

Art Nouveau and so much more!

Our guide, Vadim, was an amazing wealth of information! Our tour was about architecture, but we learned so much about history and Czech society at the same time—I felt like I could have earned college credit! We highly recommend this tour! I wish we had more time to take another tour with him.

The most stimulating and informative tour. Vadim is a scholar but he is charming, funny and considerate. You will never look at Prague the same way -- you will see things that you never thought of. This is a must for anyone with an interest in architecture and history. Worth every penny.

This was hands down one of the best...

This was hands down one of the best tours I've ever taken. Bonita, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. She provided fascinating historical as well as artistic and architectural contexts for each of the beautiful buildings and landmarks that we visited. We went inside several of the buildings to view some of the hidden gems and details. I would recommend this tour very highly to anyone interested in the gems from this period that Prague has to offer.
