  jousting hall of Vladislav
by sandysmith
 
 

There are 3 architectural layers to the Palace - the cellars, (1135) Charles IV then added his own palace above this whilst the top floor consists of the massive Vladislav Hall. This huge hall was used for jousting tournaments with horses coming up here - I found myself looking for hoof marks in the old wooden floor. Of course the hall ewas also used for grand banquets, the Kings elections (by their peers) and since 1918 the pesidents are sworn in here.
