Mozart loved Prague, and when he visited, he often stayed at this villa owned by the Dusek family. Now a museum, it contains displays of his written work and his harpsichord. There's also a lock of Mozart's hair, encased in a cube of glass. Much of the Bertramka villa was destroyed by fire in the 1870s, but Mozart's rooms, where he finished composing the opera Don Giovanni, were miraculously left untouched. Chamber concerts are often held here, usually starting at 5pm.
