Prague publishes film locations map

By FNE Staff

    The Czech Film Commission has teamed up with Prague City Hall to create a map of film locations used in famous films that were shot in the Czech capital. "Lights! Camera! Prague!" is designed both at visitors to Prague and as a marketing tool for international productions companies.

    The map, published in English only, is the brainchild of Czech Film Commission head Ludmila Clausova. It indicates sites that have been used for some of the more than 50 foreign film shot in the Czech Republic. Clausova told Prague Radio that she got the idea when she was stopped by tourists asking where Milos Forman's Oscar-winning U.S. movie Amadeus was filmed. Clausova said that rather than feature all the films made in Prague, the map spotlights the best known movies internationally.
