The Čapek Brother's Walk BOOK TOUR

A walk through the Vinohrady neighborood of Prague reveals architectual gems.



 ..and many stories...


This is a walking route in a part of the city that often gets overlooked, even by many Prague residents. Published in the local press, as a tip for a short city walk during the pandemic. It is not likely that someone visiting Prague for the first time will make it so far from Prague Castle, Charles' Bridge, and Old Town.





This is New Town! A part of Prague that grew on the South facing slope of the previous "King's Vineyard". A trending part of the town today, it was also a special haven for the burgeoning upper class, factory owners, famous writers, lawyers and doctors. At the turn of the 19th century, Vinohrady was the place to be, if you lived in Prague.




It is an easy 2 hour stroll that starts at the small park named after the two brothers whose house is included. Hopefully, by the time we take this walk with visitors, the Čapek House will be open, as it is now being renovated as a museum. Karel and Josef are both known throughout the world for their remarkable stories and artwork. But they are only two of many who they called neighbors.



And so, each house that was featured by Aktualny, has some extraodinary tale to tell about the designer, builder or owner. With a guide, this walk becomes a journey into the very fabric of late 19th and early 20th century Prague. Not a long away from the special streets that had already become a protected architectural neighborhood not long after it was first developed, is the Vinohrady Cemetery. This is perhaps the most beautiful collection of sculture anywhere in the country.

Here are just a few images of what you can expect to see on a walk through the residential villa neighborhood in Vinohrady:
