What is Mysterium Tours?
Best described as unique and artistic project where storytellers and narrators guide visitors and tell facts, mysteries, tales, and tragic events around the streets and squares of the old towns; a night walk guided by an elegant narrator. It is a journey through the charming dark side of the city, away from common and lit places. The storyteller will take you to places where mysterious and often tragic events happened in past, places where rumours, beliefs and superstitions are meeting with our fear to form dark myths and legends.
Who is a Mysterium Tours for?
Do you want to experience something unique and unforgettable? A ghost- or mysteries-lover, fascinated by things we still not fully understand or a skeptic willing extend his horizons? Our mystery tours are exactly for you. Just keep in mind there is a reasonable amount of walking involved and our stories might not be suitable for overly-sensitive or small children.
Why to choose Mysterium Tours?
Unlike other tours, Mysterium Tours is a team of enthusiastic passionate about history and folklore, as well as the tailoring and ostentation of elegant, historical and Gothic clothing. This is a passion that we want to share with you. Apart from this, our tours have a limit of 15 people to ensure an intimate atmosphere and a unique connection between you and the narrator. It is our privilige to guide you through the ancient cobbled streets of old areas and our mission to present the myriad of historic mysteries of these, to regale you with terrifying tales of ghosts, madness, murders vampires and monsters, alchemy, magic and mystery!
Are the stories all real?
All stories are results of intensive research and as an important part of local folklore, they have survived the passage of many centuries. It is the nature of the folklore and paranormal as subjects to be rather difficult to “prove” as science is not yet at the point of understanding them completely. Tour operators and tour guides can only tell you what they know, what they’ve researched, what people have experienced and what evidence exists. A good storyteller can make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end, spinning a web of a story to tie together all of the facts and hearsay that comes with research.
Note: due logistic reasons, some of the stories you will hear on our tours, did not happen on the designated spots where we stops, rather about the mysterious past of the city.
What should I bring with myself?
Bring a good pair of walking shoes or sneakers as it is a walking tour.

What happens when there is bad weather?
Light rain and wind won´t stop us from experiencing our tours and sometimes even rain or snow can further improve the atmosphere of our tours while we are following barely lit winding narrow alleys of the old historical centres. Make sure you bring an umbrella or a raincoat and have warm clothes in case of bad weather.
