If you are into Hollywood movies, don’t miss out on Prague’s own version of Tinseltown.  Visitors can see the largest film studio in all of central Europe by taking the Barrandov to Vystaviste tram.  It is best to begin at Andel and catch one of three trams including the numbers 12, 14 or 20.  This ride takes you right up to Barrandov Film Studios where you also get a view of the surrounding neighborhood consisting of houses dating to the 1920s and considered Prague’s version of the Hollywood Hills.  Once you get back into Geologicka, you can choose between the 12, 14 or 20 tram as they all offer fabulous views of the city of Prague.   The number 12 tram will go through Mala Strana and along the river as it finally deposits you at Vystaviste. The number 14 tram will go over the river and cross Wenceslas Square before heading through New Town until it gets to Vystaviste.  The number 20 tram is the less frequent of the three and will go through Mala Strana before arriving at Divoka Sarka.
