Walking to the Strahov Monastery, we will see where Mozart improvised on the organ in the church of the Ascension of the Virgin on the day of Don Giovanni´s premiere. In Hradcany Square and Lesser Town, we will stop at the houses and palaces where Mozart held concerts and lived. Our journey ends at the St. Nicholas Church, where a requiem was held on December 14, 1791, as a tribute to W.A. Mozart. It was also a statement of the Czech nation´s sorrow at his sudden death.
