Prague and Music

on

As a country that has always loved music, Prague receives many musicians each year. It will be hosting a big number of music lovers and artists from different corners of the world. This is credit to several Czech music anniversaries to be celebrated this year including Dvořák, Smetana and Janáček, and Prague Symphony Orchestra. 2014 has been acknowledged as the Year of Czech Music. Sir Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená as Artistic Patrons and Maestro Jiří Bělohlávek as honorary President will be participating.

If you are a casual listener or a music fan, it is certain that in 2014 you will find one or several tastes of music that you enjoy at Prague.  Several types of music will be played in Prague including opera, at the same hall it premiered, experimental jazz at one of Prague’s modern jazz clubs, or street musicians on Charles Bridge. This makes the city a much part of the experience similarly to what music does.

Additionally, there are even more stories. You might be interested to visit Wolfgang Mozart, the brothel where Gustav Mahler came up with night time stories and other heartbreaking ones of the 20th century—Pavel Haas
Prague is home to the largest castle in the world and although it is a small town located at the hill overlooking the city, it has some tremendous building within it. Inside the Vladislav Hall is the Old Royal palace with a huge banqueting space which was formerly used for jousting.

Along the Golden Lane, you will find hand-painted glass, old books, as well as hand-made wooden toys.  It is the place for a tavern, a fortune teller, and a film historian hidey-hole that exhibit archive footage of a city projected against the wall of a living room.

There are other luring scenes at the David Cerny outside the Cafka Museum that attract very many photographers.
