You will have an amazing experience on a trip to see the ghosts and legends of Prague’s Old Town. Your steps will lead you through the narrow cobbled streets where history was made in the form of murderers, alchemists and immortal spirits of old Prague.
The Jewish Quarter is another mysterious place that is perfect for walking. In this smallest cadastral area of the capital, you will find a large number of monuments and marks of the old times. In the Jewish Quarter (or Josefov), people certainly did not have an easy life. The inhabitants were almost wiped out by the medieval plague, devastating fires and regular floods.
Prague was also the place of important and fatal moments during the Second World War. If you want to find out more about the background to Operation Anthropoid, for example, then you can take a three-hour guided tour. You will get an idea of what life was like in the capital during the occupation and the consequences of the assassination of Reich Protector Heydrich.
Perhaps the most famous psychiatric hospital is Prague’s Bohnice. It has a rather complex history. For lovers of mysteries and mysteriously haunted places, the abandoned cemetery that used to belong to this sanatorium is just the thing. The cemetery, in fact, hints at a dark history in the field of psychiatry.
