    Stop At: John Lennon Wall, Velkoprevorske namesti Mala Strana, Prague 11800 Czech Republic

    In Kampa, not far from Charles Bridge, there is a wall painted all over with many colours. It symbolizes the tomb of the famous frontman of the legendary music band The Beatles, but it is also a place where people expressed their opinions and protested against the communist regime.

    Lennon’s Wall is a special place – it lies hidden among gardens, embassies, Čertovka and picturesque squares. It is a colourful piece of a wall, covered with a thick layer of graffiti with a vivid history. Most colourful works of art are devoted to John Lennon and the lyrics by The Beatles.

    After John Lennon was murdered, his fictitious tomb was created in Kampa. People started to paint symbols on the adjacent wall that resembled the artist’s life and especially his work. Even today the wall changes every day with new texts and pictures although they do not have much in common with the original idea, and thanks to lenient owners, the Order of Malta, everybody can leave their message there, but of course, the topic of love and peace is preferred. Unfortunately, the original portrait of John Lennon is lost under dozens of layers of history.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Charles Bridge, Karluv Most, Prague 11000 Czech Republic

    Charles Bridge is the oldest preserved bridge over the Vltava River in Prague and the second oldest preserved bridge in the Czech Republic. It was built in 1357 and the legend says that the foundation stone was laid on 9 July at 5.31 a.m. Thus, it is sequence 1-3-5-7-9-7-5-3-1. It was believed that thanks to that the bridge would stand forever. It is the fourth stone bridge construction in Bohemia. Due to the stone bridge Prague became an important stop on European trade routes. 30 baroque statues and sculptures were gradually placed on the bridge. The most famous among them is the statue of the Saint John of Nepomuk. Originally, the bridge was called just “Stone Bridge” or “Prague Bridge”.

    Charles Bridge links the Old Town with the Lesser Quarter. It is 515.76 metres long and 9.40 to 9.50 metres wide. It is formed by sixteen arches. There are three bends within its length and it is slightly convex up stream. It was founded on millstones that might have been supported with oak piles bases.

    The bridge is completed with three towers. In the Lesser Quarter there are the smaller and bigger Lesser Quarter Bridge Towers and in the Old Town it is the Old Town Bridge Tower, which, however, does not stand on the edge bridge support, as usual with bridge towers, but on the first inner pillar. Until not long ago, there were tram routes along the bride.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Kampa Park, Na Kampe, Mala Strana 8b Na Kampe, Mala Strana, Prague Czech Republic

    Kampa is an island on the Vltava River in the Lesser Quarter, Prague, from which it is separated by a mill drain called Čertovka. Kampa Island was first mentioned in the foundation document of a church of the Johanites. The island received its today’s appearance by adjusting the terrain and the Čertovka streambed. The northern part of Kampa is built-up with houses and Charles Bridges goes over it, the southern part of the island is formed by a park. Kampa did not have a name for a long time or it was just called “The Island”. The name “Kampa” (Kampa Island) first appeared in the second half of the 18th century. There is no evidence of the origins of that name. The most probably theory says it was derived from the Latin word campus (field), as until the 16th century there were no houses on the island due to floods. Other theories, however less likely ones, say the name was derived from the Slovakian word “kempa”, which means a ferry, the Polish word “kempa” (allegedly an island), or information by the enlightened topographer Jaroslav Schaller, who derived the name Kampa Island from the Old-Czech word zákampí, meaning “behind a water stream”.

    The area along the northern part of Čertovka flowing among houses received a nickname “Venice of Prague” due to its picturesqueness, which resembles Venice in Italy.

    Stop At: Strahov Monastery, Strahovske Nadvori 1/132, Prague 11800 Czech Republic

    Strahov Monastery, or in full the Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov, is the oldest premonstratensian monastery in Bohemia, established in 1143, and one of the most important architectonic sights of the Czech Republic. The monastery, which was restored after 1990, also seats the Museum of National Literature, the famous Strahov Library and Strahov Gallery.

    The Strahov Library is one of the most valuable and best preserved historical libraries not only in the Czech Republic. It maintains more than 200 thousand books, out of which over 3,000 manuscripts and 1,500 originals, saved in a special depository. The library consists of two halls, the Theological Hall and the larger Philosophical Hall, and the connecting corridor.

    There is also the second oldest documented brewery in our territory.


    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Petrin Park, Petrinske sady 417/5, Prague 118 00 Czech Republic

    Petřín is a hill in the centre of Prague, which is 327 metres high. On its top there is the Petřín Lookout Tower and many other buildings. “Petra” means “stone” in Latin, which is where the name Petřín was derived from. Stone – marlstone - was mined there for ages and was used for many constructions in Prague including the first churches in Prague Castle or the first bridge over the Vltava River. Petřín mines were first mentioned by Sázava Monk, who wrote that Abbot Silvester used Petřín stones to have the Sázava monastery church paved. In the course of centuries Petřín had several names: Petřín, the Mountain, the Hill, Saint Lawrence Hill, which name was derived from the patron saint of the church, who you can find on its hillside. Chronicler Kosmas described Petřín as a very rocky place.

    A minor planet Petřínpragensis, which was discovered by Petr Pravec in Ondřejov in 1997, was named after Petřín. It could not be named simply Petřín, because it might be easily confused with already existing minor planet Petrina discovered in 1902. The applicable rules do not accept that.


    Stop At: Petrin, Olympijska 3 6 Olympijska 3, Prague Czech Republic

    Petřín Lookout Tower was built within the Anniversary Exhibition of 1891 as a free copy of the Eiffel Tower of Paris. Its foundations are 11 metres deep, it is 63.5 metres tall and weighs 175 tonnes. The core of the construction is formed by an octagonal tube, which includes a lift, and there are two spiral staircases with 299 steps – one is intended for going up and one for going down. The lookout tower has two lookout platforms, the lower one in the height of 20 metres, the upper one at 55 metres.

    Its base is situated in the altitude of 324 metres in the garden called By the Lookout Tower on the peak of Petřín Hill in the Lesser Town, Prague 1.

    Besides the view of the skyline of Prague including the nearby Prague Castle, the lookout tower offers a distant view of Bohemia when the weather is clear. In the north you can see Říp Mountain and the Central Bohemian Uplands, in the north-east you can see the Giant Mountains massif. The view of the south-east is quite limited as it is closed by the Brdy Hills.

    In the lookout tower basement there are several boards that map the history of the lookout tower as well as the history of the Czech Tourist Club.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Prague Castle, Hradcany, Prague 11908 Czech Republic

    A view of Prague Castle belongs to the most breathtaking panoramas. One of the largest castle compounds in the world consists of historic palaces, church buildings, gardens and picturesque recesses. Prague Castle has been a symbol of the Czech state for more than one thousand years. It was founded in the 9th century and became the seat of Czech kings and later presidents. According to the Guiness Book of Records, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. The castle also includes St. Vitus Cathedral, a traditional place of coronation of Czech kings and the place where they were buried. Originally, the name “Prague” especially related to the rocky projection with a fortified settlement of the prince, but it also started to mark the surrounding settlement, too. The settlement in its west field received the name “Hradčany” according to Prague Castle (“hrad”). In the first half of the 14th century it became a subject town, later a royal town falling under the administration of the Prague Castle burgrave. Today, Hradčany is a name of a quarter of Prague, which, besides the historic town, includes the Prague Castle territory, too.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Letna Park, Badeniho, Prague Czech Republic

    The park in Letná is the second largest park in Prague 7. A public park was founded there at the second half of the 19th century according to the design by B. Wünscher and J. Braul. The name was derived from the word Leteň, which means “Sunny Hill”. Letná Park is the largest non-built-up green area in Prague, where people can spend their free time doing sport, taking a walk or having a picnic. Letná Park provides an enchanting view of the Vltava River and the city. Thanks to a footbridge over Chotek Street, Chotek Park and Prague Castle are easily accessible from Letná Park. Due to its strategic position the plain of Letná and its adjacent slopes always served as a gathering place and campsite of armies. It also hosted various celebrations, such as the coronation of Ottokar II of Bohemia. In 1950’s, however, people went to Letná to see the so-called “queue for meat” - a monument of the dictator J. V. Stalin, which, due to its height of 65 metres, was the second largest monument of this kind in Europe. From the monument there is a wide staircase leading down to the Vltava embankment. You can go on over Čech Bridge and go along Pařížská Street to reach the Old Town’s Square.


    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Franz Kafka Muzeum, Cihelna 2B Mala Strana, Prague 118 00 Czech Republic

    Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924), sometimes also František Kafka, his Jewish name Anšel (אנשיל), was a German-writing Bohemian Jewish novelist. He is considered one of the most influential authors of the 20th century in terms of his work. He wrote three novels – Amerika (America), Der Process (The Trial) and Das Schloss (The Castle) – and a number of stories (e.g. die Verwandlung – The Metamorphosis).

    He studied law and was employed as an insurance company clerk. He never got married. He was a non-smoker, an abstinent and a vegetarian. He fell ill with tuberculosis. Almost the entire life of his was connected with Prague.

    Franz Kafka was born in the Old Town, Prague, as the eldest son of a Jewish haberdashery wholesaler Hermann Kafka and Julie Kafka. The author’s native house called U věže (By the Tower), which was situated in the corner of today’s Maiselova and U radnice streets, was later destroyed by fire. The current name of the adjacent square bears his name, too.

    First, Franz Kafka attended the German Boys’ Primary School in Masná Street, then the German State Grammar School in the rear part of the palace of Golz-Kinski in the Old Town’s Square. An important part in Kafka’s life was played by Milena Jesenská, the first translator of his works into Czech.
