ROB´s ARCHITOUR – The Prague Tour

ROB´s ARCHITOUR – The Prague Tour Rob´s Architour – the Architectural tour of Prague covers the historical centre, including parts of the Old town, Jewish Quarters, Charles Bridge, Lesser side and Prague castle. The tour usually includes an average of 5 people and at the maximum 10 people. The entire tour is on level cobblestone pavement where appropriate footwear is recommended. Also, there is the possibility of a restroom stop or coffee break at any time along the tour. The pace of the tour is slow and since we mostly do small groups, we always take into consideration the walking abilities of all participants. Suitable for mature walkers, or families with children. When going to the castle you have the more comfortable option of taking a 4 stop tram up the hill from the lesser side to the Castle, so […]

St. George Basilica Prague

St. George´s Basilica, Prague Castle

St. George Basilica Prague The second ecclesiastical building in Prague Castle was St. George Basilica Prague, which was founded in 920 by Vratislav, the father of St. Wenceslas´. The church was set alight during a siege of the castle by Konrad of Znojmo in 1142. Afterwards, it was reconstructed. The basilica was extended westwards, where two steeples and a triple-nave crypt under the presbytery were built. The 12th-century Romanesque basilica with two white argillite steeples including interiors has remained intact, although several changes were made in the Gothic period, like St.Ludmilaús Chapel dating from the 13th century and early 16th-century Renaissance alterations. Tha Baroque period is represented by the west facade from the second half of the 17th century and decorated with statues. The high Baroque chapel of St. John of Nepomuk, constructed in 1718-1722, is decorated with sculptures by F.M.Brokoff. listen […]

Yellow penguins in Prague

Prague yellow penguins in Prague, you can find only yellow penguins check a review from Tripadvisor.com: Penguins standing in a row by the river – they light up at night: “The cool thing about this artwork in the river is that if you walk down to the wharf area where the last penguin is located, you can stand in front and look like you’re the leader of the penguins! These penguins light up at night which is very impressive. There are other artworks in the park next to the penguins on display.”

National Theatre Prague – rooftop

National Theater rooftop In the exterior, the loggia stands out with Corinthian columns above the main entrance, preceded in front of the building. It bears the statues of Apollo and nine Muses by Bohuslav Schnirch. On both stair pylons there are horse trigas with goddesses of Victory, which were mounted in 1911. The original trigas by Schnirch were destroyed in a fire and consequently they were newly created by his disciples, sculptors František Rous, Emanuel Hallmann and Ladislav Šaloun.

Prague Wenceslas Square

Kind of Paris Champs-Élysées :). Just kind of, of course. BUT Prague Wenceslas Square  is really a boulevard/avenue, measuring 750m long by 60m wide. The history of the square goes back to 1348, when Charles IV (Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor) designed it as a horse market. After 600 years it is now a national symbol and the place where most demonstrations take place. It’s a perfect place for going shopping, meeting friends or just hanging out. It is in fact one of Praguers’ favorite meeting places (“at the Horse’s tail”) and a great spot to start your itinerary around the city. At the top of Wenceslas Square, there is the monumental National Museum, and just off to the left is the Prague State Opera. Shopping Wenceslas Square is not only the home of Czech history and the cultural centre of Prague, but […]

St. Nicholas Church, Prague

St. Nicholas Church The Church of St Nicholas, the most famous Baroque church in Prague, stands along with the former Jesuit college in the centre of the Lesser Town Square. Today’s Church of St Nicholas is one of the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps. Construction lasted approximately one hundred years, and three generations of great Baroque architects – father, son and son-in-law – worked on the church: Kryštof Dientzenhofer, Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer and Anselmo Lurago. Although the church underwent certain developmental transformations, the resulting building is an architectural gem. The diameter of the dome is an impressive 20 m; the height inside the church to the top of the lantern is almost 57 m, making it the tallest interior in Prague. Highlighting the unique aesthetic impact of the building is the direct connection of the adjacent slender […]
