The proximity of the Church of St. Castulus, the Powder Gate in sight. However, you care little fot the sightseeing when you're about to go fight for your country and your beloved monarch. Soldier Švejk is off to war! Who cares if he's on crutches and a wheelchair.
Rybná Street. A winded street in Prague. Originally not too charming and rather shabby, today an attractive location, with restored elegance of its historical houses. In the past, the place was an exclusive fishing trade area. In the film, this is where Švejk, pushed on a wheelchair by his old landlady, is joined by musicians, and all results in a rather large parade. Is this manifestation of excitement of war? Is it its ridicule? Is Švejk an idiot or a badgerer? Answers are still scattered around and you may come look for them yourself, on your way to a concert in the nearby St. Jacob's Church, for example.
