Classical music in Prague: We recommend what to see

In Prague, every street corner has a story, be it Mozart rehearsing Don Giovanni, Beethoven touting for sponsorship, Dvořák’s water goblin or Einstein's violin. It's a city with music running through its heart. With the help of a good map it is a wonderful town to explore by foot or by tram. Check out the best things to see and do in the Czech capitol.
