Forget art galleries and architectural wonders — a tour company in Prague is offering tourists a unique glimpse of life in the Czech Republic, taking people on a bus tour of the "monuments of corruption" that are scattered across the city.

Petr Sourek, operator of the Corrupt Tour company, told CBC Radio's As It Happens about a bus tour that shows visitors the "best of the worst" in Prague.

The company's website says the tours offer people the opportunity to visit "a wide range of corrupt businesses as well as the leading practitioners of corruption."

"The Prague officials are usually not very happy about it, which I don't understand, because it's very creative," Sourek says of his "Crony Safari" tours.
