What you'll do

+Team events up to 500 people+
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 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.
Halloween Edition:
This special shows the abandoned old town in a spooky design and live narration hosted by your personal plague doctor. "Set your lanterns, get on your broom and zoom in..."
Christmas edition:
We´ll be upgrading our event with the beautiful Christmas flair of Prague´s old town which is top ranked in Europe.

What there is left to say? The structure of the tour is very interactive, and well built. I honestly didn't notice when the time flew because Martin kept me entertained the entire time. If you are history passionate person, this is definitely a good way to spend some quality time and learn a lot about the beautiful city of Prague and what it has been put through the years. Do not hesitate to book, you will not regret a second of it.

Martin did a FANTASTIC job!!! We went in without high expectations being a virtual tour and were happily surprised! The visuals were beautiful, and the interaction was great! We’ll never think about avocados the same! We would join another of Martin’s tours in the future without question. Great job!

Fun and informative. Martin was a great storyteller and engaged the audience. Nice mixture of history of the plague along with history of Prague. Very enjoyable.

Our team had a fantastic time attending this Airbnb experience. Martin was super knowledgeable and really created an interactive environment. Felt like we took a trip to Prague without really visiting! Thanks again!

Our company had an awesome time! The virtual tour was a perfect spooky season event for our team! Very knowledgeable tour guide who had a great storyline. It was so cool to see Prague this way with no people on the street! Definitely not something you can see elsewhere!

The team and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience going through Prague from the perspective of the Plague. The host is very knowledgeable, fun and engaging throughout despite it being a virtual experience!
