Guided Tour of Bohnice Psychiatric Clinic

The Bohnice Psychiatric Clinic, situated on the outskirts of Prague, holds some of the city's darkest secrets. The facility remains in use today. As you enter the hospital gates to start your tour, the experienced tour guide will take you through a maze of buildings, each with its own distinct history. Built in the early 20th century, the hospital has borne witness to truly chilling experiences that will shock you to your core. You'll hear stories of patients whose symptoms were grossly misunderstood and many who endured inhumane treatment practices. This tour shines a light on the stark differences in how psychiatry was practiced in the past, how far it has come, and how much further it still has to go.

Continue the tour at the Cemetery

The second part of the tour will show you around the clinic’s abandoned cemetery. You will also gain valuable insight into burial rituals of the past. Over the years, the place has intrigued paranormal enthusiasts and mystic lovers, who have been drawn to the stories of local legends. While walking among the many gravestones, you can’t help but feel an eerie sense of discomfort knowing about their unfortunate endings. Still, you can pay your respects to the departed souls who, in life and death, helped pave the way for a more compassionate approach to the treatment of mental illnesses.
