The Old Town. Mystery of the Professor

A sensation! The Professor discovered the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone and the elixir of immortality! But how do we know who is worthy to get this knowledge?

You will pass through the mystical places of the very center of Prague, see the unique Black Mother of the Lord and the residence of the Templars, find out what Ungelt is, look into the magnificent Church of Our Lady before Týn, discover the secret of the legendary Prague Orloj, relax in the courtyard of the Dominican monastery Clementinum, plunge into the most tragic and joyful moments of the history of Prague and, of course, you will find your own Philosopher’s Stone!
