In addition to enjoying concerts in private halls that are open only for special performances, you will get to know this magical city through personalized walking tours, one focusing on the history of Prague, and another on Prague’s musical heritage. Our accommodation for the week is an historic, recently restored inn close to the Charles Bridge, in our favorite part of the city – picturesque and peaceful “little Venice.” The hotel rooms provide views of Charles Bridge, colorful Lesser Town, or the river, immortalized by Smetana in his symphonic poem, " Vltava."
Prague’s markets and shops offer a marvelous taste of real life in this charming city, and we’ll explore them together, discovering the best of Prague’s famous Bohemian crystal, jewelry set with garnets-deep red as the darkest wine, or perhaps a souvenir from a previous century in a favorite antique shop. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the quality of Prague’s cuisine! From fusion and world creations to classic Bohemian fare, dining in Prague is a delicious adventure. We include al fresco meals on a garden- terraced hillside, elegant repasts in a renovated baroque palace, and a cosmopolitan feast beside the river, while leaving some free mealtimes for you to discover a favorite or two of your own.
