Even if you've never been to Prague, chances are you've seen it on the big screen. Twenty years ago, Tom Cruise raced across the Charles Bridge in a key scene in Mission Impossible; since then the city, with its storybook castles and cathedrals, has been a backdrop for other Hollywood blockbusters, including Casino Royale and The Bourne Identity.
