GHOSTour is offering a new location for their 2015 Haunted Vacation tour. Travel to Prague, Czech Republic on May 3, 2015 through May 10, 2015 for an unforgettable week-long adventure to one of the scariest and notorious locales in Europe.
Prague is known to be one of the most supernatural cities with a history rich in magic, murder, and mysteries. It has been a magnet for students of the occult and in the 16th and 17th centuries it was a meeting point for alchemists and astrologers. The architecture of Prague is covered with esoteric symbols which can reveal secrets to those who know how to decipher them.
It is a destination in Europe that many ghost-hunters, paranormal investigators wish to visit and explore. This ancient city dates back over one thousand years and is the prime location to spot a ghost. The twisting cobblestone streets and large street lamps seen to bring out the shadowy spirits as night falls. The Czech lands are full of magical stories of myths, legends and ghosts.
Prague is a stunning city with a dark secret—a violent and sinister past that still haunts the corridors today. Look beyond the ornate architecture which is visible on the streets. Beneath the town is another city, the one from Prague’s past, the Underground.
Other locations on the tour are:
Prague Castle: Prague Castle is the city’s most popular attraction. It was once the home of Emperor Charles IV and his four wives in the 1600’s and still occupied today. The Castle is like a maze that connects several buildings, cathedrals and courtyards. The crypts in the castle are still open today for those willing to go in the deep, dark and dusty lover levels where the ghosts of the wives are said to bicker among themselves.
Old Royal Castle: Nearby is the Old Royal Castle where two Catholic governors were thrown out of a high window to fall to their deaths in 1618 by a Protestant leader. This incident is the event that triggered the Thirty Years War. The bitter ghosts of the governors are said to roam the area seeking revenge for the wrongs committed against them.
Jewish Quarter: Famed author Franz Kafka was often inspired by the Jewish Quarter in Prague. The Alt-Neu Synagogue is where thousands of Jews were brutally murdered before and during WW2. The cemetery behind the synagogue contains bodies of over 12,000 Jews. The bodies are sometimes stacked twelve to fifteen deep, as there was a law preventing the bodies of the Jews to be buried outside of this solemn Jewish ghetto. You will also learn about the Golem.
Astronomical Clock: It was built in 1410 and visited by tourists worldwide. Visit The Museum of Torture Instruments of the virtuous monks of the Emauzy Monastry. See Charles Bridge where statues of Saints associated with the city have been placed. One of the saints met a truly unholy end at the hands of none other than the King of the land.
You will no doubt feel some type of spiritual force in the city of Prague. There is a reason that Prague is often depicted as a city of villains in action movies. The city has a mysterious past and some things never change. Combine all this with independent late-night séances, visits to cemeteries, and a masquerade farewell party—and many other surprises—and you have what is one of the most memorable macabre tours in haunted history.
The trip is a deluxe travel package for only $2499 per person including round-trip airfare to Prague, transfers, luxury coach transportation, all hotel/castle accommodations,, all attractions, admissions, events, parties, special guests and entertainment. The tour will fly out of a New York Metro airport where people from all over the world meet as a group to travel together to the United Kingdom. If you wish to arrange your own airfare, you would deduct $400 off the package total. GHOSTour is now accepting reservations.
