Golden Lane (Zlata Ulicka), just inside the walls
of the Prague Castle. The housing in this lane was originally built (in the 16th
century) to accommodate the castle's guards. The lane has also been home to
goldsmiths, Prague's poorest people and some famous Czech writers. Kafka lived here
(in the blue house) with one of his sisters for a brief period. There are rumours
that alchemists lived & worked here at one time.
