Piano no. 17, Myslbek, Prague

Besides searching for pianos, we also had time for some sightseeing. The castle was an obvious place to see, and hanging at the Vltava river is always fun. I also like the district of Žižkov a lot. It is an old working-class district which used to be independent, left-wing, bohemian, somewhat rough and proud about it.

There is also a cool looking TV-tower in Žižkov:

Following a hint by a friend we met, we found also one more piano. This one was in Myslbek shopping gallery, close to the old town.

Piano no. 16, Prague railway station

The next public piano took some more time to find. First, we were in a wrong place, and when we finally reached the right place, the railway station, we could not find the piano there.

After contacting Piána na Ulici, we found out that they were just about to install the piano on the railway station this exact day, in an hour!

We went back to the station, and tried to catch the installation. We waited for some time, but, we missed it. After a lunch we came back, and found that the piano had appeared!!!

Searching for Pianos in Berlin

Here is one extra video for your enjoyment, about the challenges one encounters when searching for pianos in Berlin.

See what kind of MacGyver-like skills are needed in the quest, and see how Tommi finds out that the S-Bahn are on strike again…

Piano no. 15, New Town Hall, Prague

Next city to visit was the lovely Prague. Before arriving, I found out via a friend living there about Piána na ulici (pianos on the street) project. They install pianos in public places for people to play and enjoy creating and hearing music.

So, I arrived in Prague, this time accompanied by Annika (who also has designed the graphics for the 100-piano quest), and we started looking for the street pianos, not forgetting also to enjoy the city!

The first one we located easily at the New Town Hall / cafe Neustadt, not far away from the hostel where we stayed.
