The Dark Shadows of the Old Town(Ghosts of Prague)
Staré Město, the Old Town – the area that combine the largest number of legends and ghost tales of Prague, it’s where we go, where to look for mysteries and energies. This tour will bring to life a unique experience in a form of a walking tour, that will take you through the cobblestone streets and alleys of Old Town and Josefov, the Jewish quarter, visiting places where tales and legends are told before Gothic churches, convents, medieval houses, market squares and eerie cemeteries. This tour is ideal for those who love gothic fiction, ghost stories, tales of terror, and bloody tragedies, while enjoying strolling along the old town streets where folklore and superstition lurk in the fringes of everyday life.
This tour does NOT include paranormal investigation, access to interiors of sites visited and no “jump scare”.
Note that Mysterium Tours does NOT craft typical guided tours for tourists, these are immersive storytelling experiences about legends, histories and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.
