Hradčanské náměstí (Hradčany Square)

Hradčanské náměstí (Hradčany Square) Review

With its fabulous mixture of baroque and Renaissance houses, topped by the Castle itself, this square had a prominent role in the film Amadeus (as a substitute for Vienna). Czech director Miloš Forman used the house at No. 7 for Mozart's residence, where the composer was haunted by the masked figure he thought was his father. The flamboyant rococo Arcibiskupský palác (Archbishop's Palace), on the left as you face the Castle, was the Viennese archbishop's palace. Sadly, the plush interior shown off in the film is rarely open to the public. For a brief time after World War II, No. 11 was home to a little girl named Marie Jana Korbelová, better known as former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
