Scene from the shooting of Anthropoid (2016)

We all know that Prague is an unspoiled pearl, a time capsule of the baroque and gothic. Streets that can pass for Vienna or Paris, along with the technical support of Barrandov Studios and inexpensive costs have lured many production companies to film here.

So the next time you stroll down to your favourite hospoda, you may just run into a Hollywood star making anything from an historical drama to sword and sorcery or action movie.

The most popular adaptation of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables (1998, 128m) found Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush pitting wits through the cobbled streets of Malá Strana.

Throughout this sweeping look at post-revolutionary France, Prague's identity was carefully hidden, until during the riot scene (filmed at Prague Castle) when Notre Dame suddenly morphs into St. Vitus' Cathedral. 

Mike Cella, also known as Movie Mike, was an extra on the set of Les Miserables.

Amadeus (1984, 158m), the multi Oscar-winning story of Mozart, is another period drama well worth watching. Especially good is the use of the Estates Theatre, used just as Mozart actually did in 1787 for Don Giovanni.

If you like it heavier, see Gary Oldman go deaf while walking through the Wallenstein Gardens in Malá Strana as he portrays Beethoven in Immortal Beloved (1994, 121m).

However, if your thing is Film Noir then check out Kafka (1991, 98m). Jeremy Irons stars in this fictional account of murder and metamorphosis that will pander to those who love nothing more than to amble through the shadows of a Prague night.

The film's stark black and white photography gives many a familiar street and alley an eerie otherworldliness.

Tom Cruise, Jon Voight, Emmanuelle Beart et al steal the show however. With cars exploding, restaurant windows shattering and bodies falling from the Charles Bridge, Mission: Impossible (1996, 110m) placed Prague firmly in the minds of the movie-going public. 

Countless times the question has been asked, "where did they shoot Mission: Impossible?".

The easiest answer is to go to Na Kampa, point in any direction and say "over there". Almost all of the Prague shoot was in this area and the rest in Staré Město. 

So star watchers and film buffs look out, there's always something being filmed in and around Prague (including hits and misses like; Shanghai Knights, Plunkett & MacCleaneThe Messenger: The Story Of Joan Of ArcFrom HellA Knight's TaleHart's WarDungeons & Dragons, Blade 2 - Bloodhunt, XXX and many more).

Other notable films shot in Prague, include Alien vs. Predator, The Bourne Identity (2002), Casino Royale (2006), The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, EuroTrip, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Hannibal and the sequek Hannibal Rising, Hellboy, The Illusionist (2006), A Knight's Tale, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Omen (2006), The Pink Panther (2006), Serena (2014) Slaughterhouse-Five, The Three Musketeers (2013), The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Underworld (2003), Van Helsing, La Vie en Rose and even Yentl!
