What you'll do

+"Doctor´s edition" for medical staff (pls see below)+
+Customized trailers to promote the event, free of charge for private groups+
+"Team building edition" up to 500 people+
"Step back into time and virtually experience the empty streets of Prague during the Black Death. Through video, we'll follow the footsteps of Dr. Alexander Schamsky, an unknown Czech hero who fought the plague from 1713-1715. From the “PPE” 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 curfew in March 2021 and shows the abandoned old town.
One of us 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/work place."

Interested in our "doctor´s edition"? We explore the history of medicine and give insights of the plague from the year 1347 to 2022. More focus on medical research ... with riddles and quiz questions to engage with all type of physicians.

This was such a cool, quirky activity that was a lot of fun. We love history and David did a wonderful job giving us interesting facts and answering our questions. Would absolutely recommend!

David did a wonderful job taking our team through the (empty) streets of Prague virtually. He had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us entertained and laughing. We really enjoyed our experience with him --- and we host virtual tour experiences ourselves so we know when an experience isn't good! If you enjoy history, you will certainly enjoy this experience.

What a fun hour :) even with the topic being a plague. It was an interesting and informative time to learn all about the Plague Doctor and Prague; you can see some beautiful architecture and sites while you’re at it! Very interactive and friendly guide. If you’re interested in history, this is a must attend. I wish I could attend in person and get a jelly bean!

A fun activity that combined info/learning with entertainment. We haven’t been able to travel much with COVID so this was awesome!! My teenage son didn’t look at their phone once, so, impressive😂

It was an informative and fun experience. We sipped our wine while David teaches us about the history of the plague through a well choreographed video of the beautiful streets and architecture of Prague.
