From famous movies shot here to books written about the Czech Republic, it has quite a lot to offer for artistic and creative individuals. We conducted our research and learned which famous people love the Czech Republic…so much that some of them even decided to spend their forever here.
- William Fichtner
The first famous person who adores Prague is William Fichtner, an American actor. During his visit to the Czech Republic (lasting approximately five months), he filmed the TV series ‘Crossing Lines’ in Prague’s city center. William spent most of his spare time in the city and ultimately fell in love with it, which forced him to buy a second house here for his family. In one of his interviews, he confessed that he loves to have a cup of coffee in a local grocery store.
