There's no mystery that this tour is listed as one The Guardian's global top 10 architecture tours. A fascinating look at how at the dawn of the 20th century Czechoslovakia was socially, economically and politically at the forefront of everything modern -- and the city's architecture was a reflection of this. Over a very quick-passing 3 hours, Vadim takes you to all the city's most important Art Nouveau/Deco buildings, as well as the unique Cubist buildings. Prague is known for its buildings and gardens, and to fully appreciate both I recommend visitors (and even Prague residents) take this Art Nouveau & Cubist Architecture Walking Tour on Day 1 of your stay, then the Renaissance & Baroque Gardens Walking Tour on Day 2. You won't need anything else!

Awesome experience! Originally a 3 hour tour, we spent 4 hours with guide Vadim, discussing not only art nouveau and cubism, but also gothic, baroque, historicism, Art Deco, functionalism and brutalism and taking a closer look at their connection with historical evolutions.
What made the tour great, was Vadim’s inspiring passion for and erudition concerning architecture and history. Also, he’s just a very friendly guy and an excellent tour guide!
So if you want to expand your knowledge, this is the tour for you. Well worth the price!

We're so glad that you enjoyed it. Vadim and our whole guide team are so thrilled to be guiding again. It's a joy to help travelers explore our cities. Hope to see you again on Insight Cities tours in Prague, Vienna, Berlin, Budapest, Salzburg or (if you cannot get on a plane) on our new Live Stream tours! Thanks again.

The next best thing to actually being there--the tour was on Zoom, but the techology worked so well that it was almost like walking along with Bonita as she gave her very knowledgable guided tour. The focus on Art Nouveau and Cubist architecture worked as a great jumping off point for learning about Prague's history as well as its contemporary life. Although our guides know the city and history so well, they could have filled the time by themselves, they welcomed questions from us, which is something that makes a remote tour exceptional instead of, say, watching just a video about the city. Even if planning an in-person visit to Prague, I suggest doing a zoom tour first because it's a great introduction to the city and will help a traveler become acquainted with the area before going. I look forward to my own opportunity to visit Prague.

Thank you for the kind review. It is such a wonderful thing for us to be guiding again, both by live stream and in person. If we've tempted you to visit this fantastic old Bohemian capital, even better! We'd be so delighted to have help you explore it in more depth. Thanks again!

This was such a great experience! Bonita, our excellent guide, gave us a Zoom walking tour in which she interwove history with architecture and sites which make Prague so unique and worth visiting. Originally from New York, Bonita talks non stop for an hour as she walks from the famous Old Town square through the nearby streets. Even if you've been there before, you will learn new information and see buildings and typography which will thrill you. At the end, you'll want to book tickets to see Prague for yourself, but in the meantime, I recommend seeing some of it through Bonita's eyes. Her husband is her camera man, and he did a great job weaving through the cobblestone streets and coming close up to windows so we could see inside. They do other tours also. Try Insight Cities yourself.

Vadim is an very passionate guide who took us on a fantastic tour around the city, showing us tons of hidden gems and great sights. His vast knowledge of the architectural history and art of this city was incredibly interesting. This was my second time in Prague, but thanks to Vadim I discovered a lot of great things that I missed the first time. Highly recommended!

My parents (in their eighties) and I loved this trip round Cubist and Art Nouveau Prague. I know Prague's Municipal House where we began, but had so much to learn about its historical significance, and that was just the start of an engaging architectural, cultural and historical odyssey (layered into just two hours and with very reasonable walking distances). To have a guide and mentor so steeped in the world of Prague, and able to fuse architecture, culture and history with such detail and infectious enthusiasm was wonderful and informative in the broadest sense. It has whetted my parents' appetite for more reading on Czech history, and, indeed on that of Central and Eastern Europe more generally.

Thanks so much for the lovely review. It was a total pleasure to tour you and your parents. It feels terrific to think that they caught some of my own fascination for reading about this incredible country and the countries that neighbor it! Hope to see you on other Insight Cities tours in Prague, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest.

Had the pleasure of having Vadim Erent, co-founder of Insight Cities be our guide.
I appreciate the scholarly insights he shared, touching not just on Art Nouveau but also on the Gothic, Baroque, Art Deco movements and how all these converged in Prague at different points in its History and Politics (and also the international context of these movements). If you enjoy intellectual discussions, I highly recommend this Art Nouveau as an alternative to the usual introductory tours.
I also took the Insight Cities tours for Buda and Pest in Hungary, and in Vienna and was also impressed by the learned and well informed guides.

What a fantastic tour! Vadim was super nice, funny, and made me feel at home in a city I'd never visited before. I discovered a very important architectural aspect of the city that I would not have discovered otherwise, and I got to learn about it in the most interesting way possible. This tour brought me closer to Prague, and I now see it through different eyes. Thank you very much, looking forward to my next visit!

Bonita led a truly informative tour with stops at some of Prague's most beautiful Art Nouveau sites -- and at some lesser-known gems. She provided a rich cultural history that put the arts and architecture of the period in perspective. Highly recommended.

We thank Vadim for an excellent “short course” on Prague’s Art Nouveau and Cubist heritage! It was a wonderful view of Prague architecture and helped us understand more of the city history. We were thrilled with the knowledge and passion that Vadim shared! We were inspired!! Please tell him we did walk to ‘The Dancing House’ and explored the hidden stage at our hotel. We highly recommend this educational tour!
