Most Haunted Live 2010 : Gothic Prague – Evil Within

Prague Most Haunted Live

Most Haunted Live will return on 25th March 2010 and the event is titled Most Haunted Live: Gothic Prague – Evil Within.

Locals say that ghosts and spirits surround the city walls. Water goblins tend to hide under Charles Bridge. This bridge is a huge tourist attraction; dating back to the Middle Ages. At that time, ten lords were executed; their heads stuck on poles and placed on the bridge gruesomely. If you’re brave enough to stick around till midnight, you can hear screaming voices of the dead spirits.

Another interesting story is the legend of a walking skeleton. A jealous wife got upset with her husband and hit his skull with a nail and killing him. His spirit wanders the streets of the Old Town. His spirit will be freed if someone removes the nail from his head.


The locations of Most Haunted Live Gothic Prague are currently to be :

25th March 2010 : Night One

The hunt begins with a night at the Old Town Hall, which was once used as a prison and execution site.

After King John of Luxembourg accorded the citizens of Prague the privilege of having their own district council in 1338, they decided to build a Town Hall, paid for by a duty levied on wine. The almost 70 meters high tower was completed in 1364. Due to continuous expansions, the building now is a colorful collection of gothic and renaissance-style façades. During the 2nd World War, the building was severely damaged when the nazis suppressed the Prague uprising, but it is now thoroughly restored.

26th March 2010 : Night Two

The team venture into the city’s underground maze of waterworks where mysterious noises have terrified local workers.

27th March 2010 : Night Three

The team leave the comforts of the city and spend the night in the mysterious Castle Krivoklat.

Krivoklat Castle is located about 40 km west of Prague. It was built in the late 13th century as a hunting lodge, a weekend getaway for the Premyslid Princes and the seat of the royal master of hounds. Later, Wenceslas I built a stone castle on the spot and Charles IV used it in the 14th century.

Krivoklat Castle is located about 40 km west of Prague. It was built here in the 13th century during the rule of Premysl Otakar II as a summer seat and hunting lodge for royalty. In 1422 the Krivoklat Castle was damaged by Hussites and later, in the years 1493 – 1522, restored by King Vladislav Jagiello, who built the vaulted Gothic hall that has many resemblances with the famous Vladislav Hall at the Prague Castle.

Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. spent his early childhood here before being sent off to France. Habsburgs used the Krivoklat Castle as a prison. In its round tower English alchemist Edward Kelley was incarcerated for two and a half years for failing to reveal the secret of the philosopher’s stone to Rudolf II.

Current appearance of the Krivoklat Castle dates from 1826, when the Furstenberg family extensively restored it after a fire. The reconstruction was made by Czech architects Joseph Mocker and Karel Hilbert.

28th March 2010 : Night Four

Castle Houska. Why the castle was built or its main purpose is still a bit of a mystery in itself but it gets the nickname of “Gateway to Hell”.

Houska Castle is an early Gothic castle, 47 km north of Prague, in the Czech Republic. It was built by Ottokar II of Bohemia during his reign (1253–1278) and became an important royal abode. It later passed to the hands of the aristocracy in which it remained until 1924, the times of the First Republic.

Houska castle (most specificaly the chapel) has been constructed over a large hole in the ground that is supposedly so deep no one could see the bottom of it. Half animal half man creatures were reported to have crawled out of it, and dark winged creatures flew in the vicinity of it. When construction was begun on the castle, all the inmates that were sentenced to death were offered a pardon if they consented to be lowered by rope into the hole, and report back on what they saw. When the first person was lowered in, after a few seconds he began screaming “pull me back up”, and when they did he looked as if he had aged 30 years in just a few seconds. He had grown wrinkles and his hair had turned white, as old folklore tales state. He was admitted to a insane asylum and died within 2 days. The castle was built with no fortications, near no trade routes, built with no water, no kitchen, and no occupants at its time of completion. Houska castle was not built to keep inhabitants or as a protective sancuary, it was built because they thought the hole was a gateway to hell. Thus, by constructing the Gothic building, they were able to keep the demons trapped in the thickest walls (the lower level walls closest to the hole) of the castle. The people who work there are said to know this, and they are just as spooked as you would expect them to be.

During the Nazi occupation of this area in the early 1900’s many physics experiments where done by the Nazi Reich in the castle and most specifically in the chapel where the Nazi’s made attempts at opening dimensional portals and other physics/science experiments.

  2. Hi I couldn;t wait to see the Brinkburn Priory and Belsay episodes tho as usual am still not convinced either are haunted despite hearing various odd sounds. I been to both places for 20 years and not heard or seen anything spooky and had to laugh at times, which is mean as it’s not filmed as a comedy. well done for filiming the episodes as the english heritage properties dont get shown on the TV much!!

  4. hi i think this will remind karl of yvette
    Haven’t we met
    You’re some kind of beautiful stranger
    You could be good for me
    I’ve had the taste for danger

    If I’m smart then I’ll run away
    But I’m not so I guess I’ll stay
    Heaven forbid
    I’ll take my chance on a beautiful stranger

    I looked into your eyes
    And my world came tumbling down
    You’re the devil in disguise
    That’s why I’m singing this song

    To know you is to love you
    You’re everywhere I go
    And everybody knows
    To love you is to be part of you
    I’ve paid for you with tears
    And swallowed all my pride

    Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
    Beautiful stranger
    Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
    Beautiful stranger

    If I’m smart then I’ll run away
    But I’m not so I guess I’ll stay
    Haven’t you heard
    I fell in love with a beautiful stranger

    I looked into your face
    My heart was dancing all over the place
    I’d like to change my point of view
    If I could just forget about you

    I looked into your eyes
    And my world came tumbling down
    You’re the devil in disguise
    That’s why I’m singing this song to you
    That’s why i’m singing this song to you . . .

  5. Dying to hear what voice spoke to Yvette about. Loved David Wells. Karl is a very bad actor and should be kept in full view at all times and Paul Ross made a fool of himself saying he heard something slithering after Fred Bat spoke of demons being animals and snakes, we’re not stupid. Love Yvette, Kat, Simon Matt and Chris and of course Stuart. Would love to see after live shows analyzed. Love Kieran too. I like Chris Conway but loved David. Please tell Leslie to wear trousers but not trouser suits! Why does she always have to come out with silly questions and references that seem to be macabre and menacing. I’m sure not all spirits want to harm the crew. Why take the nasty view. Crew are still making too much noise but loved live in Prague, apart from Karl. He needs to be more disciplined and no moree bad acting please! Keep up the good work.

  6. So what happened in the chapel after the show finished? how are we able to find out about that voice that was copying Yvette? the show was such an anti climax at the end.. i really want to know what happened :o(

  7. Its really frustrating watchin mh live cos then only have medium on for first half hour and then they get left. This live was rubbish. Fell asleep on first 3 and didnt watch sunday night. I used to love this show but im losing my respect for it now. Especially since chris conways statement

  8. I have been watching MH since series one back in the day when “orbs” were all the rage! lol

    Ok I miss David Wells.. he is the most convincing medium I have seen. The scottish guy is “ok” but lacks depth and personality.
    Derek was an ass.. think we all know that.

    I missed last nights (sat) live show. My V+ box did not record it!! So I have been looking for a way to stream last nights episode from the Most Haunted official site and can not believe there is no way to watch already aired episodes direct from the site!
    Big company like Living and MH can afford the server space surely?

    I am really frustrated by this knowledge… because equally Virgin doesnt offer it on catch up either.

    Sort it out guys!

    BTW, Friday night in “the shed” was amazing..

    side note – as much as I am sure Yvette loves Kath/Cath (?) as a friend when she and Lesley get together on a investigation the amount of screams and mass hysteria makes me want to slap them both. I am not saying I would be any different and I am sure its scary as hell but from a viewers POV it doesn’t make for good TV watching hysterical women screaming out any noises made by possible paranormal activity.
    With the upmost respect, each should stick to their positions of make up artist and historian.
