Visit the Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself most likely performed.

The late Baroque aristocratic palace is located by the Charles Bridge. This is also the palace where Milos Forman in 1983 filmed parts of his Oscar winning flm Amadeus.
Built on Roman and Gothic foundations. In 1735 Prince Heinrich Paul Mansfeld bought a palace on the Royal Route and rebuilt it to the representative residence. The four wing building features sculptures on the portal (coat-of-arms of Prince Mansfeld, vases and angels) and a fountain with a statue of Neptune in the courtyard. 
The interior of Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace stands out for its magnificent main (dance) hall, so called "Piano Nobile" decorated by beautiful fresco paintings depicting Olympian gods. Amazing not only in terms of their artistic value, the frescoes are also unique as they have been left untouched since their creation in the 1760s, and preserved in great condition. This is something rarely seen elsewhere in Europe!
This hall had most likely witnessed performances of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as the Colloredo-Mansfeld family belonged to the most honored nobility at the time when Mozart often visited Prague (invited by noble families to give concerts). In 1840, the palace held the first exhibition of paintings by the Fine Arts Union. Since 2010 Colloredo-Mansfeld palace houses Gallery of the City of Prague who helds here mainly contemporary Czech art exhibitions.
The Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace, designed by European architects and artists, is a great example of Prague's rich cosmopolitan history.
