What you'll do

++Halloween Specials as of Oct 20th for private groups+++
Step back into time and virtually experience the empty streets of Prague during the Black Death and plagues of the 17th and 18th centuries. Through video, we'll follow the footsteps of Dr. Alexander Schamsky, an unknown Czech hero who fought the plague in 1713. From the “personal protective equipment” of the time to the deserted landmarks of the city, you’ll immerse yourself in the forgotten history of the pneumonic and bubonic plagues. Our recorded video has no audio as we comment everything live we see. The movie was shot with a professional movie camera during times of quarantine and shows the abandoned old town. A map is included to track our journey.

One of our 5 Plague Doctors will take you on the journey to visit the famous Charles Bridge, walk around the Old Town Square, and go into the Jewish Quarter, discovering hidden gems in the dark streets. We´ll stop by the old St. Francis hospital and conclude the tour at the convent of St. Agnes. So, not only will you traverse time, but you’ll also get the sense of travel—all from the comfort of your home.

One booking is for one household—there’s no need to pay for more people who are in the same room using the same device.
Great for team-building and groups up to 100 people. Feel free to contact us for more details.

I know how the description sounds, but the hosts are so knowledgeable and they do an amazing job immersing you in the time and culture of Plague-ridden Prague. It’s like, the best history class you didn’t know you needed, with the stunning imagery of Prague as the backdrop

A informative and fascinating experience. I learned a great deal about the 1713 plague in Prague. Our host, Tomas, told interesting stories and shared many facts as we journeyed through the city. Interactive and quite educational.

Highly recommend this tour, our guide was so great and patient and got us all to participate. It’s such a surreal thing to be on zoom with a bunch of strangers learning about something like this and it was even more fun than I expected. Everyone should try this!

Such a great experience! We loved seeing Prague at night-very magical and we learned a lot about the city and it’s statues and building. Fantastic tour and guides, David was always willing to answer any questions and he was so personable, it felt like we were right there with him.
