From $2,100 per person, based on double occupancy…

Day 1
Disembarkation | Prague

This morning your driver will meet you upon disembarkation from Crystal Mozart for your private vehicle transfer to Prague (four hours).

Upon your arrival into Prague, you will be transferred to your hotel in the city center.

Perhaps more than any other city in Europe, Prague has kept its pre-modern charm. Spared the destruction of the Second World War, the ancient structures of the city still exist in their original state. Prague is a walking city as it was designed over many centuries for the pedestrian and the horse. The inner city lacks major avenues as found in Paris or Rome, giving the city its unique character.

Day 2
Prague | Prague

Meet your guide and driver this morning. Your day will begin with an overview drive of Prague.  Drive by the famous Dancing House and through the historical area of Vysehrad, with its 10th century fort.  You will also observe modern local Czech life with a drive through the bustling residential area of Vinohrady, once covered by vineyards.  Afterwards, you will arrive at the Castle District.  The original castle was founded in the early 14th Century, but it was rebuilt many times over the ages. As it is much easier to walk down the steep Castle Hill, you will want to start at the top of the hill and the extraordinary Strahov Monastery. When you first arrive at the monastery you will almost certainly be taken by the sweeping views it has to offer over all of Prague and the Vltava River. The monastery was founded in 1140 and was one of the wealthiest and most prestigious of its time. This wealth enabled the monks to create the greatest and most ornate library of the Middle Ages and it remains completely intact today.

Exeter International Extraordinary Experience

VIP visit to the Strahov Monastery. Here, you will be invited into the two main halls of the library (the Philosophical Hall and the Theological Hall). These two halls are always viewed by the public through the narrow doorways at the end of each room, but you will be allowed to enter the rooms to walk alone among the ancient books and artifacts.

Included today will also be a visit to the Prague Castle complex. Here Maria Theresa commissioned the famous architect of the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Nicholas Pacassi, to design the interior of the complex. You will almost certainly want to step into the towering Neo-Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral inside the complex.

Your day will end in the Malá Strana or Little Quarter, which is best known for the Wallenstein Palace and Church of St. Nicholas. Also, it is here in the Malá Strana that you will find many charming restaurants and unique shops full of Bohemian glass and the marionettes that are so famous in Prague. Note: All touring today is on foot in largely pedestrian only areas.

Day 3
Prague | Prague

Today your guide will take you through Prague’s famous Jewish Quarter and the Old Town. You will tour the historic synagogues, including the stunning Spanish Synagogue and the ancient Old-New Synagogue, which was built in the late 13th Century, making it the oldest synagogue still in use in Europe. Legend has it that the Golem created by Prague’s most famous rabbi, Rabbi Loew, is hidden in its attic. While in the Jewish Quarter, you may decide to visit the Old Jewish Cemetery, founded in the late 15th Century and still corresponding to its original medieval size. Over the centuries, more than 100,000 people are believed to have been buried here, the oldest tomb known being of the writer Rabbi Kara.

After your tour of the Jewish Quarter, your guide will take you into the famous Old Town Square, where you can see the Astrological Clock that has become the symbol of Prague. Be sure not to miss the fairytale-like Old Town Hall Tower (1364) that stands above Old Town Square- you can even go to the top of the tower for a splendid view over the district.

Finally, you will enter New Town- which is new because it was only founded in 1348! Here you can visit Wenceslas Square, were over the many centuries demonstrations of civil discontent have taken place. At the top of the square you will see the imposing building of the National Museum and the Monument to St Wenceslas, the patron of the Czech lands, by sculptor Josef Myslbek. Next you may want to walk the coronation route of Czech kings, the Royal Way, now a bustling pedestrian street lined with buildings from many different architectural periods.

Note: All touring today is on foot in largely pedestrian only areas.
