Our Žižkov tour will show you one of Prague’s oldest neighbourhoods. It was formally known as ‘Red Žižkov’ as it was a stronghold of the Communist party. Today it’s buzzing with students, artists, and musicians, a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town. More than 300 bars dot the neighbourhood’s two square miles – the highest per capita concentration of bars in any district in Europe. Žižkov is a melting pot of the old Czech character and a cosmopolitan blend of artists, anarchists, poets, and everyday people.
This tour will move through the vibrant streets, sampling drinks from establisments such as a typical family-run Czech restaurant, a funky hipster bar, and an art deco club which has hosted bands such as The Strokes, Dead Kennedy’s, and Apollo 440.
Coming on tour with us is like spending an evening with a friend. You will come away from this experience with a basic knowledge of life in the Czech Republic. Our guide will tell you fascinating stories from the Czech past which illustrate the struggle through Communism and revolution into the modern day.
At the end of our tour, our guide will stay with you to answer any questions and call you a taxi to get you home safely.
