Walking Night Tour - Ghost Stories and Legends of Old Town

379 reviews
Spend a spooky night in Prague learning about its ghost stories on this nighttime walking tour of the Old Town and Jewish Quarter. Hear eerie tales from an art-historian guide outfitted in a historically accurate Gothic outfit. Explore the dark back streets of the city and learn about Prague’s prominent monuments. Because it’s a small-group tour, you have plenty of time for questions.

The original square of Old Town was a marketplace. The buildings grew around it. There are cobblestones all over the place so it’s easy to imagine what it looked like in the 10th century. We took plenty of photographs but we also browsed around looking for shops, restaurants, etc. You definitely want to come here and check it out.

We were there during Chrismas so there were Christmas markets on in the square for the whole duration. It gave it a festive feeling and it was always quite busy. But what I really enjoyed was the buildings in the area. The grand churches with their magnificent spires and the astronomical clock chiming every hour. I preferred to go during the day to get a better view of the buildings and their unique facades. There are plenty around with eye-catching designs. One of the better areas to walk around since I quite liked the stone pavings and buildings.

Definitely one of the best markets I’ve been in Europe ! But be aware of the “Prague ham” they will charge you for the weight , so tell them how much you want otherwise they will just give you a portion and you end up paying € 30 for one big portion ham with 2 slices of bread - at least the ham was very moist and delicious ! After all worth a visit !

Beware of fraud !!!! You will find many people who will give good exchange rates for Euro & USD only but they will give you other currencies which is not accepted anywhere in Prague that is Belarusian Ruble. In entire city you can change currency at good rates without any commission hence you do not need to go for such fraud people. Coming to Old town square- it is very very beautiful place and city. Must visit place in Prague. All other tourist attractions are nearby walking distance to Old town square.
