The Places Prague is the ancient capital of Bohemia and now of the Czech Republic. Its history is reflected in its building, recalling the splendours of the past under changing dynasties and the 400 or so years as part of the Habsburg Empire, until the establishment of the new republic of Czechoslovakia in 1918. At the heart of Europe, the region has always been a fertile ground for musicians.
The Music The music included here is associated in one way or another with Prague or Bohemia. It includes works by the Bohemian composers Smetana and Dvorak, by the Moravian composer Janacek, and by Fibich who, with Mozart, always found a ready welcome for his music in Prague.

The selected music does not reflect the architecture or character of the places. For instance every Czech would select Smetana's Vltava accompanying the part Vltava. To show National Theatre and The State Opera Theatre and not the Estate Theatre ( where Don Giovanni was first performed) when mentioning Mozart is very peculiar. The selection of places showed does not reflect the typical parts of Prague
