The whole area of The Castle is magical,lots of magnificent architecture to marvel at.
These were built in the 16th century for theguards who lived and worked there.
This is a nice little tiny street with old houses that are now workshops/giftshops for crafts. It is pretty and worth seeing. Evidently this is also where Kafka lived for a summer.
Small houses built in the gothic fortification, the 16th century homes of castle riflemen and craftsmen. In 1916 - 1917 Franz Kafka used to work in No. 22.
Still in the Golden Lane, I took this photo of steps probably dated from the actual time when it was being used.
Go up to the castle at sunrise. The only time of day when you can take pictures of the castle and Golden Lane without any tourists on. And a lovely view as well!!!
Many people come visit the Golden Lane when they see the Prague Castle. The blue house on the picture is #22, where Kafka once lived. It is a charming, albight very touristy place.
