– after lunch we will spend most of the time within the borders of the New Town of Prague

– walk through the Wenceslas Square –the „shopwindow“ of 19th-20th century architecture in Prague (you can see almost all architectonic styles here from neo-renaissance, neo-classicism, art nouveau, through constructivism, functionalism, socialist realism, architecture of 60ties, etc.).

DAY 4: Litomyšl

– time to get out of Prague for a while. Check out and travel to Litomyšl (UNESCO), approx. 2hrs drive. This historical eastern Bohemian town is probably the most progressive one in terms of symbiosis of historical and modern architecture.  Check the Renaissance Chateau that is inscribed in UNESCO list, visit some of the local museums and galleries and check some great examples of modern architecture here as well. E.g. the indoor swimming pool, the reconstruction of the Church of the Finding of the Holy Cross, the bus terminal, etc.
