The network of tunnels and underground passages under the Prague Castle used to be a place for torturing prisoners.
How to visit the Prague Castle dungeons in Prague
Part of the tunnels served as headquarters, in which sooner or later the suspects, people accused in any illegal political activity - espionage, organization of conspiracies and uprisings – found themselves. For example, the nobleman Daliborka - one of the participants in the peasant uprising - was tortured here.
