Petr Sourek has figured out how to make his own profit out of Prague's many citizens turning a profit illicitly. Billing it an experience of "the best of the worst," Sourek, 38, has created a travel agency CorruptTour that gives tourists a dose of Prague's corruption along with a smirking sense of humor.
The Czech Republic has produced a plethora of corruption scandals assuring that Sourek’s walking and bus tours are frequently sold out. The resignation of disgraced Prime Minister Petr Nečas in June is the latest of such scandals. Nečas, who was suspected to be involved in graft and abuse of power, stepped down following a massive raid involving 400 police officers ending with the arrests of eight government officials. The nation ranks 22nd out of 27 European Union countries on Transparency International's 2012 Corruption Perception Index.
