Mala Street is one of the most “film” streets of Prague. This is due to its original nineteenth-century architecture preserved on both sides. Until the eighties of the twentieth century on the street gaslights were operating- this also made the street a great background for movies. Mala Street was open air for such films as “Girls of Nowolipki”, “Korczak,” or “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski. For the needs of “The Pianist” stage designers filled in the gap on the right side, creating a model of a house with a white facade. In front of the model of the house was shot a scene in which the hero of the film – Wladyslaw Szpilman – is detained in the roundup.
