Travel back in time at the Golden Well Hotel in Central Prague
The Golden Well Hotel is a hidden gem of a 16th century hideaway in a romantic rose garden on the grounds of the Prague Castle and in the noble neighborhood of the Czech parliament. The renaissance house originally belonged to Roman Emperor and Bohemian King Rudolf II (1552 - 1612) and served as the Residence of the famous Astronomer Tycho de Brahe (1546 - 1601).
The hotel was originally built as 5 separate buildings at the end of the 16th century. And formerly one of these five buildings was built as a private residence of the Emperor Rudolph II. He was using this building not only for himself, but he also let some of these buildings to the other honored guests from the court - mostly for the Danish famous astronomer Tycho de Brahe. After WW the II. this building was used as a private flats and apartments for the people of Prague
Abandoned and nearly destroyed during the communist regime in Prague, a major renovation was necessary to bring back its beauty and charm for its re-opening in 2000.
