From Vinohrady to Žižkov and Back Again
Serching for Bohemian Prague. This winding route takes you through the streets of Žižkov and Vinohrady leading to the TV transmission tower.Price from 500 CZK
Žižkov is one of the most iconic Prague neighbourhoods outside of the historical centre. In the past, its mostly working-class population, lively pubs and cabarets, and hilly terrain under Vítkov Hill together cast an irresistible spell under which many an aspiring artist fell. Žižkov was home to two famous Jaroslavs – Hašek, author of the worldfamous humorous novel The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier Švejk During the World War, and Seifert, a poet who is the sole Czech Nobel laureate for literature. Today Zižkov is undergoing rapid changes, but its heart remains purely bohemian. The walk will take you first to the Vinohrady district, which gets its name from real vineyards that were laid out on the hillsides here during the Middle Ages. Today you’ll find beautifully decorated buildings alongside severe Modernism in surprising colours and shapes, and in Žižkov interesting sculptures. This winding route takes you through the streets of Žižkov leading to the TV transmission tower. Rest and refresh yourself at one of the many local pubs that the district is known for.
