The sightseeing walking tour in Prague begins at the stairs of the church of St Nicholas in the Lesser Town Square. The church is one of the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps. The construction of the church took approximately 100 years and three generations of great Baroque architects of father, son and son-in-law, worked on this church.
Among many other impressive buildings scattered around the Square, the Old Town Hall and Smiricky Palace are the most valuable buildings to see. Further up, there are a few more historical buildings from the 16th and 17th century such as churches of St. Joseph and St. Thomas.
We continue into the street Mostecka passing the Two Lesser Town Bridge Towers and onto the Charles Bridge, crossing the river Vltava. At the end of the bridge, there are the Two Bridge Towers of the Old Town built in the 15th century. There is also the Crusaders’ Church, statue of the Emperor Charles IV and the Clementinum, which is a former Dominican monastery turned into a Jezuit’s college in the mid 16th century. The college buildings stretched away five courtyards, three churches, two towers, schools, library, theatre, observatory and its own printing workshop.
