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.

I attended this experience with my team at work and learned a great deal about the plague, plague doctors, and the city of Prague. It was a fun history lesson and nice virtual tour of a beautiful city!

Overall this was an informative, fun, interactive experience - good for individuals and groups. It felt as if we were actually walking the streets of Prague!

I enjoyed the excellent videos as the story was told. Having spent time in Prague, it was especially interesting to see empty streets, like ours are right now during COVID.

This was really fun and interesting - the map and video helped us understand where we “were” in Prague and the context of the plague gave us a jumping off point to make this more than just a tour of a (very cool) city. Thanks, Tomáš!

Informative, fun, interactive experience. Tomás was a fabulous host, who made each participant feel welcome and included. The video was a high quality roam through Prague. I've already recommended to family and friends!

This was a great way to explore together, virtually, with family from all over. My sister really loved this unique experience for her birthday. I'd recommend it to anyone!
