The Golden Lane

The Golden Lane is a short, narrow and beautiful street located inside the Prague Castle. It owes its name to the goldsmiths who inhabited it in the seventeenth century.

The left side is occupied by colorful houses that were built on the walls of the castle. These houses were built at the end of the 16th century with the initial purpose of sheltering the 24 guardians of the castle.

A century after being built, the guild of goldsmiths occupied the houses and modified them. They lived in them for several centuries.

By the 19th century they were inhabited by beggars and delinquents of Prague. In the 20th century they were evicted and the houses have become small puppets, glass and other typical products.

The house of Franz Kafka

The golden lane is especially well known because in the 22nd house lived Franz Kafka, one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, between 1916 and 1917.

The golden lane will amaze you, do not miss it and take the opportunity to enter as many houses as possible.

We especially like puppet stores and medieval armor and weapons. In the gun shop you can shoot a crossbow (and take the target of memory).
