Photo: Golden Lane Shops Prague Castle

Colorful cottages where unique gift shops are located adorn Golden Lane of the Prague Castle in the Czech Republic in Europe.

Houses painted in colorful hues line Golden Lane of the Prague Castle in Czech Republic that were originally built in 1597 for marksmen and their families. This construction was ordered by Emperor Rudolph II so that the men that resided in these homes could protect him from the many enemies that he had acquired.

In the later years, these cottages were used for goldsmiths and alchemists and this is how the name of Golden Lane came about. After some reconstruction, the cottages are now used as gift shops and exhibits of the medieval times and thousands of tourists come here yearly to browse or buy souvenirs from their trip to Prague in the Czech Republic.

The best time to browse through the shops is early in the morning, because as the day progresses, the people seem to swarm in and around the shops. After seeing the shops, you can then explore the rest of the grounds of Prague Castle in the Czech Republic. ... continue below the picture...
