Prague architecture tour is approximtely 2-hour walk with one of our guides – architectural enthusiasts. Prague is well known for its most visible monuments and many architectural styles ranging from gothic, baroque to functionalism and cubism. Czechoslovakia enjoyed a great era of modernism and functionalism during so called “First Republic” (1918 – 1938).
Prague was considered a European center of architectural avant-garde in 20’s and 30’s of the 20th, attracting the top architectural talent of that time in Czechoslovakia. There are number of buildings in Prague designed by Gocar, Janak, Loos and many others.
It is up to you whether you like gothic, baroque, art nouveau or you would go for the modern architecture.
