Action! Camera! Prague!
See for yourself where the Hollywood blockbusters wer shot at. Mysterious nooks and romantic Prague lanes have beckoned Hollywood since the earliest days of film history. Perhaps you’ve sat in the same theatre as Mozart in Amadeus, enjoyed a drink in the restaurant from The Best Offer, or experienced first love like Spiderman Peter Parker. Prague doesn't always play itself in films, though, because it easily serves as the backdrop for blockbusters that take place in Vienna, Paris, or even in an entirely fictional fantasy world. Look carefully – you might see Prague through new eyes: the eyes of a filmmaker.
Archways and passages
Passages and archways were supposed to be not just a shelter from a bad weather or shopping arcade.

Discover the shortcuts to avoid overcrowded streets and find out why passages became such a phenomenon over the years.
Bastions & Fortifications
According to ancient legends, Vyšehrad is the oldest seat of Czech princes; in fact, the local settlement was established in the mid-10th century.

Most of them are centuries old and the concept of Prague’s house signs itself dates to the 14th century. If you’re intrigued come and take a walk of the Old Town or the Lesser Town. Most symbols represent domesticated or exotic animals, e.g.: The House At the Three Ostriches, The House At the Black Elephant. Other signs symbolized the name and the profession of the family that lived in that particular house. Unfortunately, during the reign of the Marie Therese (the archduchess of Austria and Holy Roman Empress of the Habsburg Dynasty) the house signs were replaced by number signs.
