What you'll do

+++We have also created a version for team building+++
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.

Very nice online experience, which brings history alive. Unique virtual tour through totally empty streets of the Old Town of Prague. Interesting for those who haven´t been to Prague yet, but also for those who know the city as the historic guiding gives different perspectives. Through direct and poll questions this tour is interactive and entertaining.
