This Weekend, Take a Free Tour of Prague’s Hidden Courtyards

via Facebook / Malostranské dvorky

You’ve admired Prague’s baroque Malá Strana buildings from the street, but have you ever seen what they look like from the other side?


This weekend, May 26-27, 14 normally-inaccessible courtyards throughout Malá Strana will be open to the public as part of the Malostranské dvorky event, organized by the same association (Café Ondřej Kobza) responsible for placing pianos throughout Prague’s streets.

During the event, visitors will have the chance to see courtyards, backyards, and other nooks and crannies in the historical Prague district that they may not otherwise get the chance to see.

At each location, events such as classical music concerts, art exhibitions, author’s readings, and more can be seen throughout the day.

A full brochure for the event can be purchased in physical form at Malostranské náměstí over the weekend for 50 crowns.

Here’s a full list of locations that will be participating in the event:
