St. Simon & St. Jude, Jewish Qtr
||St. Simon & St. Jude Church - Jewish Quarter|
St. Simon & St. Jude Church is set in a peaceful corner of the Jewish Quarter.
It is a large church built in a mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles.
Concerts are held just a few times each month. They are organised by the Prague Symphony Orchestra, so the musical standards are excellent.
The unique sound of St. Simon and St. Jude's magnificent organ has drawn composers such as W.A. Mozart and J. Haydn to play at the church.

|Villa Amerika: Dvořák Museum|
Villa Amerika was built between 1712-1720, during the Baroque period, as a summer palace. The building is now a museum dedicated to Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904), one of the greatest Czech composers.
From May to October, Villa Amerika hosts a series of concerts entitled Wonderful Dvořák. These are held in the Music Salon, which has a stunning ceiling fresco and houses Dvořák artifacts. Performances are presented "living history style", in period costume.
