We also visit the Old Palace Prague Castle, which was founded in the 9th century as the seat of the Czech princes and kings and over the centuries all the major architectural styles would leave their mark. A special atmosphere reigns in the little street by Prague Castle, called Golden Lane. It is lined with small picturesque houses that resemble dolls houses more than people’s homes. The origin of some of these colourful buildings goes back to the 16th century. The renowned writer Franz Kafka lived in Golden Lane for some time during World War I.
