Exploring the Haunted Sites of Prague
Whether for fun or in search of “ghosts,” don’t miss out on the chance to discover the secrets that lurk around Prague’s corners, secluded alleyways and haunted castles. And if overcome with the feeling that someone’s watching you from the shadows, keep the garlic by your side. After all, one never knows what could happen!
Join one of the guided tours and let the experts lead you through the dark. Remember it’s safer in numbers….
You’ll begin with a walk along the Charles Bridge, an architecturally stunning structure. It poses much interest to astronomers, who’ve spent years studying about its position in relation to the stars. And apparently it has revealed many hidden mysteries. On this stretch of the tour, you’ll hear about the Holy Grail and the Templar Knights.
As you reach the Old Town Square, you’ll visit famous theaters and landmarks where strange events took place. They’ll tell you about the murders and executions, and about the “spirits” who insist on making their presence known in the plaza. Pay close attention especially to the Astronomical Clock. What you’ll learn will simply amaze you!
Upon arriving to the Jewish Quarter, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. Still today it stands as it did when segregated from the rest of the city. You’ll learn about the legend of the Golem and the secrets about Rabbi Loew who still “attends” services at the synagogue. Many say his presence is felt in the dark cemetery.
When in the mood for refreshments, stop at any of the pubs. Or go to one of the “haunted” bars where Becherovka is served; rumor has it, this liqueur was created by ancient alchemists. However, the old recipe for this “magic potion” has proven to be nothing short of a miracle cure.
When exploring the romantic castle of Cervena Lhota, the stories told will baffle even the non-believers. As legend has it, many people have tried to repaint the main salon and the cross that adorns its walls. However, they’ve never succeeded. And it all stems from the tragic events that took place here centuries ago.
So as the sun sets in Prague, grab a lantern and get set to uncover its mystique.
