As dusk falls, make your way to the meeting point in Prague Old Town. Greet your guide, an expert on the city’s often violent past, and set off on your 2-hour walking tour.
To add to the sense of suspense, the exact route of your walk will only be revealed on the evening itself.
Stroll the lanes of the Old Town as darkness gathers, and hear about the shadowy figures and fables that still hang like a pall over the lamplit streets.
Pass the Astronomical Clock and St Nicholas Church, and walk to the Charles Bridge as your guide shares facts about its bloody past. View the eerie, silhouetted statues and hear how they once gazed on the severed heads of execution victims dangled from the bridge’s tower.
Head into the atmospheric Jewish Quarter, the home of several creepy graveyards, and puzzle over some of the mysteries associated with the neighborhood.
Delve into more darkened corners and alleyways as your guide teases out more dastardly tales. Visit a courtyard stalked by a long-dead Turkish soldier, and hear the legends of the Infant Jesus of Prague and the decapitated woman called Laura who supposedly roams the city in an unending search for her long-lost head.
Duly spooked, your tour ends safely in Old Town Square.
