Thinking of visiting Prague for the weekend with your boys? Are you a movie fan? Here we suggest 10 movies where you can see the beauty of Prague before visiting.
Don’t get concerned about the budget already, as Prague is cheaper than any other central eastern cities in Europe, in terms of flight tickets or accommodation. Oops did I mention about the cheapest and best beer? Well, beer cost less than water over here. Let’s see the movies you can binge-watch:
Let’s start with the gorgeous looking man, Tom Cruise, and his movie franchise; part one was shot in Prague. Many favourite locations ware shown in the movie like Wenceslas square, the museums, and of course Charles Bridge. This bridge has a lovely view of the city.
A tip: beware of the pick-pockets, because unlike this movie, the bridge is crowded most of the times.
This movie shows Prague Castle in such a compelling way, it is worth mentioning. Other than the castle, other scenes of this movie have been shot in Prague, including the street scenes and the indoor scenes which are shot in Barrandov studios (the largest studio in Prague).
If you are interested in historical and architectural beauty you need to see this movie. The way it portrays the Divadlo Na Vinohradech, a theatre in Prague, where the main character performs, is outstanding.
This Oscar-winning movie uses Prague as the backdrop. Prague’s minute details are showcased beautifully from the Maltese Square to the Archbishop’s Palace.
Another Oscar-winning movie that has been entirely shot in Prague – both indoor and outdoor – shows the chemistry between an abandoned boy and an old cello player who adopted the kid. Without understanding each other’s language they build a compelling relationship that’s well-worth watching.
