Horse-drawn wagons carrying wood. Street vendors, conjurers and florists. Emperor's soldiers in flawless uniforms. Street life and Mozart, disappointed, coming back home. Everyone wants to hear his music, but no one wants him as their teacher.
This was Vienna in the 18th century, and Prague wasn't much different. When you walk through narrow winded streets of the Lesser Town, you'll be surrounded by history on every corner you pass. It was perhaps the genius loci of the Maltese Square that convinced Miloš Forman to film his Amadeus here. Today you will find Czech national flags fluttering in the streets instead of fresh sweet-smelling linen, the conjurers have been replaced with modern art, yet the house facades radiate certain magic. If you wish to follow in the exact footsteps of the film Mozart, take the Prokopská Street from the Maltese Square.
