"Crowded lane" Golden Lane Tip by chbuchie

Golden Lane, Prague: 115 reviews and 185 photos

Named after the goldsmids working here in the 17th century, Golden Lane also housed the king Rudolf II's crossbow archers (hence the attraction in Kafka's house). However in the 19th century this lovely street was inhabited by criminals and the poor and it had to wait for the past century for a thorough clean up to its present state.

Even in mid November and with an entrance the Golden Lane is overcrowded.
Yet still worth a visit.
In the beginning of the street you'll find the house of Kafka, well actually he just stayed a few months here with his sister, but it sells
