Who has never thought about eternal life? Or a love potion that could solve a lot of trouble and often save a lot of time. In Prague, potions were a big topic, especially during the reign of Rudolf II. Alchemy combined mysticism and science, researchers sought to break into the mysteries of the world and nature and overcome the boundaries that had previously been closed to a man.
In addition to many places connected with alchemists in Prague, you will also find museums that will try to reveal a bit of the secret of alchemy. The building, where you can find one of the museums, Speculum Alchemiae, is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So Prague offers not only hundreds of stories and legends, but also a real memory of the place where the alchemists tried to make potions. Did they succeed? It is up to you to find the answer. Good luck!
