Golden Lane at Prague Castle in Prague. An ancient street lined by 11 historic houses, forms part of the Prague Castle complex.
Golden Lane was created when a new outer wall was added to the existing Romanesque castle complex. It was originally known as Zlatnická ulička (Goldsmith's Lane), due to the many goldsmiths residing in the houses; some more alchemist than goldsmith!
In its early years Golden Lane consisted of even smaller dwellings. Eventually, as each fell into disrepair they were replaced by the houses we see today.
