Prague square to be named after movie director Miloš Forman

Prague councillors have voted to name a plaza in the city after the late film director Miloš Forman, the Czech News Agency reported on Tuesday. Miloš Forman Square will be located by the Hotel International at the end of the upmarket Pařížská St. in the downtown area.

Forman made some of the most highly rated films of the Czechoslovak New Wave and later won two Oscars after moving to the United States. He died in mid-April at the age of 86.
