Waldstein Hotel****

Hotel Waldstein is situated in the most attractive part of Prague, few steps from Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and surrounded by Prague Castle and the main Prague sights. The historical building (14th century) offers accommodation in 34 rooms and suites comfortably equipped with antique furniture. Some rooms have original wooden renaissance ceilings

Waldstein Palace is located next to the Waldstein Hotel. The most representative space of the palace, which is facing the Prague Castle with its northern facade, is the Main Hall. Historical rooms of the palace are open to public on weekends and visiting them is free of charge. One can visit former representational spaces of the Waldstein family - Knights’ Hall, Antechamber, and Audience Hall. Parallel to the Main Hall and located in the opposite wing of the palace, there are two corridors: Mythological and Astrological (located one floor above). Both are richly decorated with frescos and stuccowork. Mythological corridor used to be connected with the ground floor where used to be a spacious riding school with almost 40 horses. Each horse had its portrait above the place where it was stabled. Today, there is a Meeting Hall in place of the stable.

The palace complex was built by Albrecht Waldstein in 1623 in place of Trčkovský Palace, 26 other houses, three big gardens, and a brick kiln. Famous Italian architects, builders, and artists were involved in its construction. The palace was looted by the Swedish army in 1648 and all of the valuables including bronze statues made by Adriana de Vriese (Emperor Rudolph II’s court sculptor) were taken away.

The palace belonged to the Waldstein family until 1945. Then it became owned by state that turned it into the seat of state institutions. It has been the seat of the Senate of the Czech Republic since 1996.

The Waldstein Palace was awarded for the quality of renovation that was finished in 2003 by Europa Nostra award.

You can visit one of many prague pubs around, to try local beer and cuisine or some good prague brewery.
