Map of Golden Lane at Prague Castle in Prague
Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička) is an ancient street within the Prague Castle complex.

Golden Lane dates from the 15th Century and has a beautiful, olden world quaintness about it. It comprises 11 historic houses, inside which period scenes have been created to show the life of the artisans who once worked, ate, drank and slept in them.

In the upper level of the houses are medieval armoury and textile displays. Visitors can also try shooting a crossbow.

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.

Entrance to Golden Lane is payable, but visitors cannot buy a ticket for this alone. You need one of the Prague Castle self-guided visitor tickets, which cost 250czk (short visit ticket) or 350czk (long visit ticket), and include admission to other parts of the castle too.
