Architecture is part of our everyday life and the organization Open House Praha invites people to explore it in an unconventional way.

In November three walking tours are prepared for English-speaking Prague residents which allow them to experience architecture of different styles and visit some usually inaccessible places.

Let’s go back in time and learn more about Czech history – its important historical figures, famous houses and amazing stories during a walking tour called Czech History Mirrored by Prague’s Lesser Town held on November 14, at 4 p.m.

Lesser Town is one of the oldest parts of Prague where you can find many churches, palaces, monuments and gardens. The guided walk will present the most important moments in the quarter’s history – from its foundation in the 13th century to the Enlightenment changes. More information can be found here.

On November 21 at 2 p.m. you are invited to a walk through the villa district in Bubeneč which will introduce the residences of one of the richest families in pre-war Europe. The Petschek family members owned more than a dozen houses in Bubeneč, some of them designed by architect Max Spielmann.

You will learn how the individual members of the Petschek family lived as well as a number of other interesting facts about them. More information about The Petschek Family Houses – How the Wealthy Lived tour can be found here.

 

Last but not least, with Open House Praha you can explore one of the world’s biggest stadiums ever built. A special guided tour of the Great Strahov stadium will be held on November 28 at 2 p.m. and will take you to the presidential lounge, west grandstand, or amazing walkaways.

You will find out about the long history of this concrete giant which was built for displays of synchronized gymnastics called Spartakiada but also hosted concerts or military parades. In 2003, the stadium was designated a cultural monument of the Czech Republic. More information can be found here.
