Ghosts, Legends, and Mysteries of Prague

If the idea of hearing spine-tingling tales and anticipating a ghostly encounter while walking haunted streets entices you, then this tour is for you to brave. With a guide leading you through narrow cobblestone streets, dimly lit alleyways, and hidden courtyards, get ready to hear tales that have haunted the city for centuries. The tour takes you to the heart of the old town square, where the shadow of the Gothic spires of the Church of Our Lady before Tyn engulfs you. As the sun sets, your guide sets the mood with the tale of the Headless Templar. You can almost sense his spectral presence as you walk along the streets he is said to wander, seeking revenge on the traitor who betrayed him.

Famous Landmarks Veiled with Eerie Tales

Make your way to the Astronomical Clock and learn of the curse that befalls anyone who tampers with the clock's mechanisms. The statues lining the ancient Charles Bridge seem to take on a life of their own, as your guide describes the headless monk, whose spirit supposedly haunts those who cross his path. Enter the labyrinthine streets of the old town as you hear the legend of the alchemist's curse and the secret laboratories where forbidden experiments were conducted. The Vltava River, which flows through Prague, has its share of legends. According to one story, a water nymph named Vltava resides in the river, captivating unsuspecting travelers with her beauty and luring them to their watery demise.

We had a great time and Lenka did a phenomenal job providing a spooky tour through Prague. She personalized our tour since we were new to the city and covered all the basics in addition to sharing fascinating legends and myths about Prague. We would definitely book with this service again! Lenka is very knowledgeable and was lots of fun to walk around with. Thanks, Lenka!
