What you'll do

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 camera during times of quarantine and shows the abandoned old town.
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.

I wasn't sure what to expect on this tour, but it was very educational and fun at the same time! Tomáš was a fabulous guide and really personalized the tour for us. Great value for the price! Highly recommend!!

Had a really great experience, I took a class on the bubonic plague a few years ago and I still learned some new things. The tour guide was fantastic as well!

Such a cool view of Prague — the empty streets are eerie and seemingly accurate for the time of the plague...and modern day pandemic era. Would love to try this tour in person when everything reopens.

We booked a private tour as a team building experience, and we had the best time! David was so great, and his excitement made us even more excited to be there. We spent the first 30 minutes of our next team meeting discussing how much David and his tour made us want to visit Prague in the future! This was our first online AirBnB trip and we are now looking into more because of how great this one was.

David is a wonderful storyteller and did a tremendous job making some dark history engaging and relevant. Really enjoyed our tour through the quiet dark streets and my teenage sons found all the gruesome plague details fascinating!
