Mission: Impossible Walking Tour in Prague
The Mission: Impossible film series started in the Czech capital and now you can follow in the footsteps of Ethan Hunt and his team through the streets of Prague. Our guide will show you the most iconic filming locations of the first film as well as the great cultural heritage of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
The guide will pick up you on your requested meeting point and take you to the most popular locations of Brian de Palma’s Mission: Impossible.
As it becomes clear the team is under attack, the car explodes on Na Kampe itself. The whole area is overlooked by the famous Charles Bridge, from which Jim Phelps (Jon Voight) plunges into the Vltava river. The 15th century stone bridge, connecting the Lesser Town with the Old Town, is usually jam-packed with all kinds of street vendors and artists, and is punctuated by 30 striking 18th century statues of saints (now replaced by replicas).
The Charles Bridge can also be seen in Rob Cohen’s xXx movie with Vin Diesel, in Van Helsing and in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The grand interior of the Embassy is the then-rather rundown Natural History Museum in Prague. This museum has been closed for several years for major renovations, no doubt helped by the locations fees earned by its appearances as the lobby of a grand Venetian hotel in 2006’s Casino Royale and as the art gallery in the Hughes Brothers’ From Hell with Johnny Depp.
The canopied entrance seen in the film is a part of the grand Municipal House complex (which also houses the French restaurant seen in the xXx spy movie).
Other local shooting locations included Lichtenstein Palace, Hotel Evropa and the Old Town Square, which Ethan Hunt leaps into after blowing up the restaurant aquarium.
