Prague Castle, Prague: 40 reviews and 86 photos
Favorite thing: Golden Lane, dating back to the end of the 15th Century, is yet another interesting part of the Prague Castle complex.
Golden Lane is a small street lined by 11 historic houses, some of which now house interesting armoury and textile exhibits, along with tourist souvenir shops.
A popular section of the Prague Castle complex, Golden Lane attracts it's fair share of visitors, crowding into the small passageway and low buildings.
Golden Lane was created when a new outer wall was added to the existing Romanesque castle complex. It was originally known as Zlatnicka Ulicka (Goldsmith's Lane), due to the many goldsmith's residing there.
In it's early years, Golden Lane consisted of many small dwellings, many of which eventually fell into disrepair. As larger buildings replaced the old ones and then have subsequently themselves been restored, we are left with a charming little passageway, well worth a visit.
Combined tickets for the whole Prague Castle complex include entrance to Golden Lane. Otherwise, buy a single entry ticket.
Fondest memory: in small blue home # 22 (just 1 room about 6 sq m !!! ) Franz Kafka used to work in 1916-1917.
