Jean Valjean, inspector Javert, Marius in love, the miserable Fantina... who wouldn't recall the characters from the legendary Les Misérables? The makers of one of the most famous film adaptations of Victor Hugo's classical novel headed to Prague!
The filming took place in the Chateau Troja. Its halls have also witnessed the presence of Beethoven, played by the outstanding Gary Oldman, and Isabella Rossellini, the Hungarian duchess and Beetoven's darling in the film Immortal Beloved. It was precisely the duchess that Beethoven spent the most beautiful moments of his life with.
It's no wonder that Troja and its chateau are favoured by film-makers. The elegant baroque building is also decorated with a beautiful garden. You're welcome to walk through the local little maze, sit by one of the fountains, or simply enjoy the colourful flowers and breathe in the aristocratic elegance that is present all around. While you do so, play the Moonlight Sonata into your ears for your ultimate experience.
