Prague under quarantine: A photo reportage by Amos Chapple

This photo reportage of Prague under quarantine was originally published by Oko! Magazine, an official partner of Kafkadesk.

With more drastic measures being taken to avoid the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, most of the city finds themselves restricted to homes or offices.

For the few, likeĀ Amos Chapple who managed to go for a city walk before the full quarantine took effect, the views have been somewhat surrealistic. Below, you’ll find a photo reportage of the Czech capital city like you’ve never seen it, and like you might never see it again.
