    You'll visit Staré Mesto, the historical heart of medieval Prague, containing one of the most famous squares in Europe. This quarter is home to impressive architecture and emblematic sites, such as the old town hall, its famous astronomical clock, and the Municipal House. This tour includes a tasting of the traditional Czech Trdelník cakes. Trdelník dough is grilled on iron spits and then rolled in a walnut sugar mix. This delight should be on the top of any visitor's to-do list in Prague. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the Christmas markets in the old part of the city. Soak up the unique European ambiance accented by the lights and delicious scents the holiday brings. Or grab a seat in a café in front of the astronomical clock to hear it strike and see the 15th-century figures come to life.
