On this 1.5-hour-long Free Ghost and Legends tour, you will discover hidden passages, streets, and dark alleys of Old Town, while learning about Prague's gruesome and mysterious past. You will hear the story of Prague's most famous executioner, you will see the hospital where the first surgery with anesthesia in the world was successfully performed and will visit one of the most legendary places in Prague, where Prague citizens today meet at night to leave secret symbols on walls.

The tour will start at the Powder Tower, a 15th-century Gothic entrance to Old Town. From the Powder Gate, we will follow the Royal Way, once the coronation route of Bohemian Kings, today a street bustling with tourist life. From here we will take some of Prague's many passages and will delve into the hidden and unexplored streets of Old Town. Here our first ghost story will be told, a story about a beautiful but unfortunate daughter of a tax collector.

Afterward, streets will be getting narrower, more abandoned, and darker. We will be entering the former slums of Old Town, where poor inhabitants of Old Town were once surviving. Right at the edge of this former slum, a secret alchemy laboratory was discovered recently, leaving a lot of unanswered questions behind. And just near it today, mysterious Prague citizens leave writings on walls bringing to life stories that were once an imagination of a single man.

Finally, we will walk the streets of the Jewish Quarter and will hear its creepiest legend.
