During this pleasant walk through the city center your guide will point out places, which were closely connected to wine and together you will look into the laws which winemakers in medieval Prague had to follow and what privileges and prerogatives had been given. On many original pictures and maps of medieval Prague your guide will explain why Prague was once called the City of Wine and what caused the final decrease of winemaking in 19th century.
