Overview
See Prague from a different perspective on a 3.5-hour walking tour of its alternative neighborhoods and go beyond the usual tourist haunts. Learn how the Velvet Revolution gave rise to a city of street art, underground music, skate parks and more.
What to Expect
Escape the usual tourist haunts of Prague and discover how the Velvet Revolution gave the Czech Republic the freedom to express itself in art, music, and more. Local artist guides will show you how culture flourishes outside the historic center.

Discover the hotspots in the Old Town and New Town, as well as alternative neighborhoods such as Karlín, Libeň, and Holešovice. No other tour covers these areas. Learn about the city’s subcultures, graffiti art, and underground music scene, as well as the illegal punk scene before the Velvet Revolution.

Hear about the student protest movement of the 1960s, and the police riot at the CzechTek Festival in 2005. Explore the work of independent artists and the Free Tekno community, and hear how dubstep, grime, hip hop and drum and base have set Prague on fire.

Your guide will also tell you what to do, where to buy cool stuff, and how to enjoy Prague as the local youth do. As young artists who grew up in the city and live the cultural scene every day, they will have the inside track on what’s hot and what’s not.
