Veselé Vánoce!

Wishing you a Very Merry Czech Christmas Prague’s traditions run deep - it’s part of what makes the city so special during this time of year. There’s the stunning Christmas Tree in Old Town Square, which is shipped from Liberec in the northern mountains and lit with thousands of twinkling lights each year. There’s the handmade souvenirs of the holiday markets, from wooden toys and glassware, to embroidered lace and woven scarves, which recall decades worth of Czech history. Even the Czech traditional Christmas dinner - fried carp - dates back to the 18th century, when it represented the only meal cheap enough for the entire country to eat. Really, there’s no better time to get your fill of Czech tradition than during the holidays, and in this THE

month’s issue we’re doing just that. These age-old customs range from feasting on carp to fasting in the hopes of seeing a vision of the lucky golden pig (zlaté prasátko)- and don’t worry, by the end of this issue, we’ll explain them all. Prague’s worldfamous Christmas markets are a wintry marvel every visitor should see, and we’ve put together a guide to all the hits, from Old Town Square and its 23-meter Christmas tree to the nearby shopping extravaganza at Wenceslas Square. Prague wouldn’t be the revolution-born city it is without people willing to push the boundaries of tradition, so it’s fitting that New Year’s comes so soon after Christmas - as much as the holidays are a time of appreciating the traditions we’ve built, it’s

also a time to look ahead to the history we want to make ourselves. Plus, Czechs love any excuse for fireworks, and New Year’s is the biggest excuse of all. You don’t want to miss the beautiful chaos of the lights all over the city! Going into the new year, you can find us wandering the Christmas Market stalls, sipping svařák and admiring the lights. Be sure to check out the businesses that advertise in our magazine…We’re proud to say that we only allow advertisers with a TripAdvisor rating of 4 or above – and businesses we feel like most locals would recommend. So, enjoy the holidays and don’t forget to like us on Facebook and Instagram!

Ten things you need to know about

Czech Christmas Christmas time is our favorite time of the year, especially here in the Czech Republic. If you’re visiting, you should probably be aware of the basics, and some of the more quirky Czech traditions. Christmas Eve is the main day of celebration – with a family dinner and the opening of gifts while Christmas Day is more low-key. Here’s ten ways Christmas time in the Czech Republic might be different than what you’re used to…

Happy Name Day... Got you an apple!

Thanks for the gifts, Baby Jesus Unlike most Germanic cultures, baby Jesus (Ježíšek) brings the presents, not Santa Claus. Gifts are delivered during dinner through an open window and the presents are left under the tree. Before you start picturing infant Jesus carrying in a kids bike it should be noted there are really no images associated with the divine being.

Happy Name Day, Adam and Eve! Darling, let's scare the kids... On December 5th, the eve of Saint Mikuláš Day (St. Nicholas Day), adults dressed as the saint, an angel and a devil wander the streets, visiting children and handing out presents. Children are asked if they have been good that year and they respond with a yes and a song or poem. Good children receive candies and fruits, bad children get a lump of coal or old potatoes. Horrible children are supposedly taken to hell by the Devil, so naturally children are terrified of the already scary-looking character. Although St. Nicholas looks similar to Santa Claus, he is actually based on the real-life patron saint of children and those in need. You’ll most likely see the three characters walking along the street; you can definitely find them in Old Town Square.

Similar to a birthday, a Name Day involves celebrating a day of the year that is associated with one's given name. Homage is paid to those bearing the name of the first man and woman on December 24.

...and Speaking of Apples During or after Christmas dinner, each person cuts an apple down the middle to see if it has a star, which means they will survive the next year, or a cross, which means they will die (Luckily it’s almost impossible to get a cross).

Prague's most famous tree Every year, Old Town Square’s beautiful Christmas tree is selected from among 20 choices, none of which are in a public forest - this year’s tree comes from a private estate in Liberec. It’s a Smrk (Spruce) tree and is the tallest in recent years at 23 meters - it’s more than 60 years old!

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | December 2018


Excuse me, there seems to be a carp in my bathtub... The carp meal on Christmas Eve dates back to the 18th century when the fish was cheap enough to be a common traditional meal amongst all Czechs. In more modern times, the fish were often kept living in the family bathtub in the days leading up to Christmas to filter out the dirty riverwater and for the amusement of the children. Live carp can still be purchased at many markets and processed on site for your refridgerator, or packed up and ready for your tub.

Seeing Golden Pigs Looking for a bit of luck? Perhaps try the Czech tradition of fasting all day before the big Christmas dinner. Superstition has it that if you see a golden pig (zlaté prasátko) – you'll have good luck for all of the upcoming year.

First one to leave the dinner table dies... It may sound like the plot from a murder mystery dinner, but it's actually on old superstition. Once Christmas dinner begins, no one is allowed to leave the table until everyone finishes and they can all stand up together to go and open presents. The first person to leave the table is said to be the first to die in the new year.

More Christmas ways to die Superstition and fortune-telling seems to surround the traditional Czech Christmas, foretelling not just upcoming success, but also impending death. Families put a candle in a walnut shell and watch where the walnut boat floats, which provides a prediction for the upcoming year – once again including death as one of the many outcomes. Other superstitions include pouring molten lead into water and reading the shapes to determine fate in the upcoming year.

St. Stephens and Chill A more recent Czech tradition which takes place on Svátek svatého Štěpána (or St. Stephen's Day) involves jumping into a freezing cold lake or cold river. In Prague, you can join the plunge into the Vltava by the National Theatre. We'd recommend bringing your own towel and a bottle of slivovice.

Christmas Market Guide The Christmas Markets are back! This month we tell you about our seven favorites. To see where they are, visit the map in the middle of the magazine with the corresponding numbers.

1. Staroměstské náměstí (Old Town Square) Through January 6 10:00 – 22:00,

Food Stands stay open until Midnight

It’s no surprise that Old Town Square is home to Prague’s largest and most picturesque Christmas Market, complete with a towering Christmas tree, nativity scene and concert stage, and numerous food and gift vendors. Even if you aren’t looking to do some holiday shopping, the square is a must-see for the views alone and is continuously ranked as one of the top Christmas Markets in the world. Best For: Instagrammable moments

2. Náměstí Míru (Peace Square) Through December 24 10:00 – 19:00

This romantic, intimate market is perhaps the only location frequented more by locals than tourists. These vendors offer handmade goods like soaps and lotions, authentic wooden toys and woven scarves and gloves over touristy gimmicks. The square’s stunning view of the neo-Gothic Church of St. Ludmila adds to the fairytale atmosphere of Prague’s first open market of the season. Best For: The "local" shopping experience

3. Náplavka Market

Saturdays 8:00 – 14:00

Náplavka Rašínovo nábřeží, Prague 2 If you’re planning on cooking your way through the holidays, Náplavka is the place to go. Known for its locally grown fresh produce and Czech goods, the market supports small good-quality producers from the Czech Republic. You can’t beat the vegetables and spices available here – you can even find live carp for a traditional Czech Christmas. Best For: Farmer's Market style market

4. Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square) Through January 6

10:00 – 22:00, Food Stands stay open until Midnight

The biggest market besides Old Town Square, this is the best place to get your entire holiday shopping list checked off. You can hop from vendor to vendor and then shop in the countless big name shops and department stores along the square. Best For: Efficient Shopping

5. Pražský hrad (Prague Castle)

Through January 6 Monday -Friday 9:00 - 18:00 Saturday - Sunday 9:00 – 19:00

Located at náměstí U Svatého Jiří (St. George’s Basilica Square), Prague 1, this is one of Prague’s newest markets and the

backdrop of St. Vitus Cathedral and the massive Prague castle complex makes this one of the most unique locations. It’s the perfect way to visit two must-see sites at once. Best For: Sightseers

6. Náměstí Republiky (Republic Square) Through December 30

For visitors looking to take a break from the craziness of Old Town without traveling too far off the path, this market is the place. A smaller, less crowded version of Old Town Square’s markets, Náměstí Republiky hosts the vendors in front of the impressive Municipal House and Palladium shopping center. This is one of the best markets for traditional Czech meats, such as blood sausages and barbecued pork. Best For: Laid back shopping

7. Manifesto Market Through December 23 Thu-Su 11:00 – 20:00

Na Florenci, Prague 1 Manifesto Market reopens for the city’s first alternative Christmas Market. Created from shipping containers, the modern market includes a rotating selection of Czech designers, creators and artists, plus food and gastronomy provided by chefs from Prague’s top restaurants. Stay nice and cozy inside rentable heated igloos or around fireplaces and with a variety of beverages. Best For: Coolness Factor

New Years 2019 New Year’s Eve in the Czech Republic is called Silvestr, commemorating the anniversary of Pope Sylvester I, an influential saint who served as Pope of the Western Church during the 4th Century. Historically it was a Christian holiday, celebrations of the new year were forbidden until Tři králové (Three Kings Day) on the twelfth day of Christmas. The New Year’s Eve extravagant parties did not begin until after WWII. Czechs believe the last day of the year has magical power and that the dreams you have on NYE will become reality in the next year. They also believe that how you spend your New Year’s Day is how you will spend the rest of the year, so Czechs make sure to spend the entire day relaxing and avoiding any kind of work whatsoever. Czechs celebrate the new year in Prague either with an immense amount of fireworks and alcohol or by avoiding the chaos altogether and getting out of town. Many Czechs escape to the mountains (hory) to go hiking or skiing or relax at a spa resort. Špindlerův Mlýn in Krkonoše is one of the most visited Czech ski resorts while Lipno in Šumava is perfect for families with young kids. Other popular mountain destinations include Jizerské, Orlické and Krušné hory. Small villages all over the country will always have some sort of New Year’s festivities going on as well, in the town squares and the local breweries. If you stay in the city, be prepared for an insane amount of large fireworks being fired off from all parts of the city since the laws here are almost non-existent. The craziness is worth it though – the natural beauty of the city is a breathtaking backdrop and it’s bound to be a fun, celebratory night. The city’s official fireworks show is January 1st at 6PM from Letná. You can find the perfect view walking along the river or from Petřín hill. You can also brave the bigger crowds and watch from the historical Charles Bridge, Old Town Square or Wenceslas Square – either way it will be a spectacular sight. The drink of the new year is Bohemia Sekt, a Czech šampaňské (champagne) with over 40 years of traditions. The company dates back to 1945 when the first batch was drank by US Troops celebrating the liberation of Starý Plzenec - they supposedly consumed over 37,000 bottles. On New Year’s Day, Czechs eat čočka na kyselo (lentil soup) which is said to bring prosperity and good fortune in the new year. You can celebrate New Year’s early on December 29, appreciating the beauty of the Vltava with a glass of wine and delicious mushrooms and oysters at Náplavka Farmers’ Market. If you’re planning on spending NYE at home, you can get all the food you need for the perfect dinner at Heřmaňák Farmers’ Market, where some of the best locally-grown fresh produce and Czech products are sold.

DINNER Prague’s best restaurants celebrate the new year in style with specially crafted NYE menus and of course, lots of champagne. For a relaxing evening away from the craziness of the center enjoy a delicious 10 course meal at Nebu. Drink champagne, cozy up by the fireplaces and enjoy the meal made by accomplished international chefs in their charcoal tandoor oven – plus fireworks afterwards! For a gourmet meal with a beautiful atmosphere check out Piknik Park, located on the magical Kampa Island, or Marina Ristorante, floating right on the Vltava with stunning views of the Prague Castle and fireworks. Marina will serve some of the best Italian in Prague, while Piknik Park’s dishes range from veal roast and grilled calamari to saffron risotto with zucchini and parmesan. For dinner with a party Avenue and Buddha Bar can’t be beat. At Avenue, you can enjoy a gourmet 5 course menu accompanied by live jazz, a DJ and other entertainment. Appetizers range from crab cutlet to salmon tartar, with main dish options of stewed veal tenderloin with coffee and cranberry sauce or Arizona trout with grilled vegetables. Buddha Bar’s delicious dinner is accompanied by a violinist, a special Burlesque show and an allnight DJ. Appetizers range from duck foie gras with cherry chutney and brioche to beef tataki with parmesan and teriyaki, with main dishes including grilled lobster with yuzu bisque and Atlantic black cod with truffle-miso sauce.

Czech saying:

Jak na Nový rok, tak po celý rok How your New Year’s Day is, so will be your entire year.

Parties For those who wish to welcome in the new year with music and a party, Prague’s countless clubs will be hosting festivities all night long. Roxy’s New Year’s Eve will feature the club’s famed resident DJs, plus an extraordinary 3D video-mapping light show inside the specially decorated club. Guaranteed to be one of the biggest parties of the night, there will be champagne, dancing and beautiful lights at one of Prague’s most historical clubs. Likewise, Epic is hosting a massive party featuring the club’s top resident DJs blasting music until the early morning hours, with no formal dress-code or gala dinner. If you don’t want to acknowledge that time has gone by, spend your night in the past at Cafe 80’s, La Loca or Lucerna, where 80’s and 90’s music blasts into the early morning. Glass Bar at the Dancing House offers a calmer setting for drinks and a spectacular view of the fireworks across the city.

CLUB GUIDE Roxy 6%

Dlouhá 33, Prague 1 www.roxy.cz

Meet Factory 6*

Ke Sklárně 15, Prague 5 www.meetfactory.cz

The Roxy is one of Prague’s oldest and bestknown clubs. The venue was a popular theatre and ballroom in the 1920’s, but now you’ll find drum and bass, house, techno, and other modern styles on the dancefloor. When the club isn’t hosting a live DJ, it’s the spot for concerts and music festivals.

This music club, art gallery, theater and cinema

all genres.

is the brainchild of David Černý, the artist

Revoluční 3, Prague 1 www.epicprague.com Newcomer to the club scene, Epic has made a name for itself as one of the hottest new clubs in the city. This modern electronic club has three levels that each make you feel like you are at an EDM concert. Truly a full audio-visual experience, the performances at the main stage alone make this spot one of the best choices for a night out. Vibe: Over the top expansive club vibes that make you party ‘til the break of dawn.

M1 Lounge 6(

Masná 1, Prague 1 www.m1lounge.com M1 Lounge is a favorite of locals, expats and even passing-through celebrities, and it’s not hard to see why. The club’s well-known team of skilled DJs keep the place pumping with a mixture of R&B, hip-hop, electro and dance music until the wee hours of morning, and the upscale, luxurious atmosphere makes every night feel like a celebration. Vibe: Upscale, Miami style club

Lucerna 6^

Vodičkova 36, Prague 1 www.musicbar.cz One of the largest and most popular music clubs in Prague, Lucerna is known for its weekly concerts and events. It's most popular on Friday and Saturday nights, when the club’s huge projection screens come alive with 80’s and 90’s music videos. Partygoers of every age and all walks of life can be seen here, getting down to oldie hits from Blondie to Nirvana. Vibe: Like being at your favorite throwback concert, except this time you can get on the stage and dance.

Cross Club 6&

Plynární 23, Prague 7 www.crossclub.cz Cross Club is a labyrinth of small bars and dancefloors pumping music from dubstep and techno to reggae and hip-hop. The club’s psychedelic, industrial décor is a sight to see in itself—every piece of the building from the walls to the ceiling is constructed to move and pulsate with the music, some of it you can even interact with. It’s one of the most unique experiences you’ll have with nightlife in Prague. Cross Club is a bit out of the city center, but worth the trek. Check the website to see what kind of music will be pulsating through the multi-level space. Vibe: Euphoric and alternative, definitely in a category of it’s own.

Vibe: EDM to the extreme every night.

are more locals and fewer tourists here than some of the other large clubs with amazing DJ’s, lasers, and vibes. Dress code is free and easy, flamboyant if you’re feeling daring.

James Dean 7)

V kolkovně 1, Prague 1 www.jamesdean.cz Okay, we admit that this one’s kind of kitschy— but only in the best way. Named for the iconic rebel and actor, the bar has a classic 1950’s American diner feel turned late-night club. Vibe: Modern twist on a classic time, all ages and all sorts of feels.

Harley’s 7(

Dlouhá 18, Prague 1 www.harleys.cz Harley's is described as the coolest hell on earth. This American-style biker bar opens late and is always rockin’ and rollin’ with live DJs and music acts. It’s also in a perfect location, just a two-minute walk from Old Town Square. Vibe: If bikers were European 25-year-olds screaming Nirvana at the top of their lungs.

Retro 7%

Francouzská 4, Prague 2 www.retropraha.cz One for the curious, bored or brave. Retro has become the Czech home of hard house. Their club nights are full to the rafters until the small hours while go-go dancers whip the energetic clubbers into a house driven frenzy. A very friendly atmosphere with smiling faces and sweating brows as far as the eye can see, there

STORM CLUB 7@

Tachovské náměstí 5, Prague 3 www.stormclub.eu Multi-genre club with two stages featuring electronic music on the weekends and concerts throughout the week. Located in Žižkov, this club is nestled behind apartment buildings at the base of Vítkov Park and also boasts a summer beer garden and various hangout spaces in the venue.

La Loca r

Odborů 4, Prague 2 www.laloca.cz Chic, fashionable and a whole lotta fun! One of the very first smoke-free establishments in Prague entertains the crowds all day every day. At night, international vibes mixed with a scrumptious selection of sizzling drinks guarantee a big night-out. Add a carefully selected music program - karaoke, 80s & 90s retro parties, DJ performances, live concerts and rooftop gatherings in the summer - and you can rest assured knowing you’re bound to have fun. Vibe: Perfect option for an entertaining, fun dinner followed by a night of dancing.

Vibe: EDM and Drum&Bass central.

Café 80’s 8) Radost FX 7#

Bělehradská 120, Prague 2 www.radostfx.cz First opened in the early ‘90s just a few years after the Velvet Revolution, Radost FX is open Thursday to Saturday and offers the best of house, R&B and hip hop music—Rihanna even filmed one of her music videos there.

Cocktail guide & WINE BAR GUIDE

The best cocktail bars in Prague (like the ones listed here) get pretty busy, even during the week. It's always good to make a reservation just to make sure you get a seat (even at the bar).

Le Valmont 9)

Uhelný trh 9, Prague 1 www.levalmont.cz The Michael Van Cleef Ault concept was inspired by the Miloš Forman movie of the same name, and is decorated in 18th-century French fashion with aubusson carpets, antique sofas, and massive crystal chandeliers. Reservations are all but required, since the 100-capacity lounge fills up fairly quickly. +420 224 267 266 for Reservations.

Schody Home Bar 7^

Zámecké schody 8, Prague 1 Recently opened bespoke cocktail bar and sister to one of our favorite cocktail places, Parlour. Located right on the stairs (schody) leading to the Prague Castle, it's hard to find but well worth the search. Once you're inside, tell the mixologist what flavors you like and he'll fix up your dream cocktail. No website, no number - it's a cozy hidden secret and they're trying to keep it that way.

Black Angel's 8#

Staroměstské náměstí 29, Prague 1 www.blackangels.cz Nestled in a cozy cellar just across from the Old Town astronomical clock, Black Angel’s will put you in sensory overload. With high cellar ceilings, chandeliers, and ornate decor, it’s a lot to take in. +420 224 213 807 for Reservations.

Bar and Books 8%

Mánesova 64, Prague 2 and Týnská 19, Prague 1 www.barandbooks.cz Bar & Books is the first overseas extension of the famous New York family of bars, with two locations in Prague (the casual hangout in Manisova and slightly more formal experience in Týnská). Like its New York counterpart, the bar evokes the feeling of a gentleman’s library. Dim lighting, heavy woods, ornately framed paintings, and of course books (mostly for visual aesthetics). Reservations online.

Crazy Daisy 9(

Václavské náměstí 4, Prague 1 www.crazydaisy.cz Somewhat hidden at the bottom of Wenceslas Square, this one of our favourite new hotspots. First Republic style interior, bar staff dressed the part and videomapping on the walls that pushes reality - it feels like you're in The Great Gatsby. +420 273 130 486 for Reservations.

Bugsy's 9%

Pařížská 10, Prague 1 www.bugsysbar.cz Bugsy’s is another bar with a great history, popping up just after the Velvet Revolution.

Their one constant has been attention to detail and passion for good cocktails. Bugsy’s also loves their bubbly, and boasts over 130 brands of champagne and prosecco, as well as over 90 single malt whiskeys and 100 types of rum. +420 224 810 287 for Reservations.

Tretter's 8@

V kolkovně 3, Prague 1 www.tretters.cz The Tretter family has been in the bar business for more than 90 years, so it’s no wonder this place feels like walking into a 1930’s Paris or New York cocktail bar. With soft lighting, classic decor and bartenders dressed the part in vintage cocktail jackets, the bar has become an institution. +420 224 811 165 for Reservations.

Parlour 8$

Krakovská 15, Prague 1 www.parlour.cz Maybe Parlour doesn’t want to be found – and that’s fine with us. The tiny little bar at the top of Wenceslas Square near the National Museum has a delightful speakeasy vibe to it, though it’s quickly becoming a popular secret. If you should luck out and discover the nearly unmarked entry, inside you’ll find an intimate, dimly lit bar with old jazz and R&B records playing and amazing craft cocktails served in antique glassware. +420 777 200 015 for Reservations.

L'Fleur 9$

V kolkovně 5, Prague 1 www.lfleur.cz L’Fleur is just a few doors down from Tretter’s. Even before our first drink, we fell in love with the 1920’s feel of the interior, complete with a Mucha-inspired stained glass window towards the back of the bar. The signature drinks all come with their own history, which the bartender is always happy to explain. If you’re feeling a bit more bubbly, try a selection from L’Fleur’s expansive champagne list. +420 734 255 665 for Reservations

AnonymouS Bar 9# Michalská 12, Prague 1

www.anonymousbar.cz It’s nearly impossible to go into the AnonymouS Bar and not smile, the bar is clever at every turn. You can tell the bartender your likes and they’ll make suggestions, or choose from the secret drink menu printed in UV ink and read with a small blacklight. Reservations are taken only until 9pm. +420 608 280 069 for Reservations.

Hemingway's 9!

Karolíny Světlé 26, Prague 1 www.hemingwaybar.cz Chances are, if you’ve asked around, Hemingway's Bar has already been recommended. The Old Town hotspot just made the “World’s Top 50 Bars” for the third time, and with good reason. The bar’s philosophy is that every customer must have

a seat, so you won’t feel overcrowded here. Reservations are highly recommended. +420 773 974 764 for Reservations.

Vinograf 8(

Cash Only Bar 8(

www.vinograf.cz Vinograf Wine Bar stays up-to-date to ensure they only serve the very best. The everchanging wine selection is on an easy to use digital tablet – you’re guaranteed to find the perfect glass for you!

This is our personal favorite when it comes to wine. +420 214 214 681 for Reservations.

Liliová 3, Prague 1

www.cashonlybar.cz Just around the corner from its older sibling Hemingway’s, this little gem is making its own name with cocktails like Pin-Up Martini, made with passion fruit, vanilla and champagne. It’s an intimate bar, and they don’t take reservations. There’s also no smoking and, you guessed it—the bar doesn’t take credit cards. Oh, and by the way, they do serve amazing hot dogs.

Green Devil's Absinth Bar 7( Týn 7, Prague 1

If you’re looking for an authentic and eclectic experience in absinth tasting, check out the Green Devil’s Absinth Bar in Old Town. The unique atmosphere accentuates the handcurated products; ranging from quality beverages to absinth-flavored ice cream.

Provaznická 1, Prague 1 www.thealchemistbar.cz A relative newcomer on the scene, Alchemist is turning out quality prohibition style drinks in their ornate classically decorated location at the bottom of Wenceslas Square. +420 251 510 940 for Reservations.

La Bodeguita del Medio 8) Kaprova 5, Prague 1

www.labodeguitadelmedio.cz With it's colonial-style interior straight from Old Havana, La Bodeguita is on point. In addition to great food, bar staff have perfected their craft with regional drinks, from the Cuba Libre to the Mojito. Located underneath Cohiba Atmosphere. +420 224 813 922 for Reservations.

Cohiba Atmosphere 8! Kaprova 5, Prague 1

www.cohibaatmosphere.cz Referred to as the Havana of Prague, this cigar club is more than just premium cigars. Refined cocktails, and fine wine quality spirits are all served in this classy setting.

FILMED in prague

© Filmed in Prague

Prague through the lens of directors who have shot here. For more, follow filmedinprague on Instagram.

BY Bektash Musa Set in Vienna, Amadeus details an incredible story about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told by his peer and secret rival, Antonio Salieri – who is confined to an insane asylum throughout the film. Famous Czech director and screenwriter Miloš Forman directed the film. He is an important figure of the Czechoslovak New Wave and is known for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Firemen’s Ball, among other films. Amadeus was nominated for 53 awards and received 40; eight Academy 46

Awards (including Best Picture), four BAFTA Awards, four Golden Globes, and a Directors Guild of America (DGA) award. Almost the entire movie is shot around the Prague Castle, in the Hradčanská and Malá Strana areas of Prague. There are many ways to get to the historical 9th century Castle, the most beautiful routes are along Nerudova and Thunovská streets. Before beginning your walk up to the castle complex, be sure to check out Malostranské náměstí and its striking baroque churches. The very beginning of Thunovská where Forman shot this scene is open

only for pedestrians. Don’t miss the sculpture of Winston Churchill in front of the Embassy of Great Britain and the small bridge to cross between the buildings up above! Turkish photographer Bektash Musa fell in love with Prague at first sight.
