Petr Sourek

Petr Sourek is a playwright and philosopher. He is founder of The new “Corrupt Tour” company takes groups around Prague, to gawk at places tied to our country’s many political and financial scandals. The tours are educational and fun. His guides offer background information and all kinds of titillating details as they show off the Blanka tunnel, an unfinished construction project that has already run half a billion dollars over budget. The next stop is an empty field near Letnany, where an Olympic stadium was supposed to be built; although millions of dollars were spent, construction never even began. Other sites include Prague’s City Hall, where tourists hear about the many graft allegations against politicians, and the Defense Ministry, plagued by accusations that it mismanaged weapons purchases. “Our goal is to get Czech corruption on a UNESCO list of the world’s cultural heritage,” said Pavel Kotyza, one of Corrupt Tour’s organizers. “We want to show,” says Sourek, “that something that seems negative can still be a source of income and entertainment.”
