A Brief History of Vladislav Hall
Located in the Old Royal Palace, Vladislav Hall was the most prominent secular space in Medieval Prague. It hosted banquets, receptions and even coronations for the Bohemian monarchy. Dwarfed by vaulted ceilings and massive chandeliers, we could almost envision the many feasts held here. Today, Vladislav Hall serves as the location of essential elections and other state events.
Situated around the corner, the Old Throne Room boasts an identical late Gothic style. This section of the castle also houses the Palace Chapel and “The Story of Prague” exhibit where visitors can learn more about the history of Prague through artifacts.
The Prague Castle district – also known as Hradčany- is located on the left bank of the Vltava River in Old Town Prague.
It is easily accessed by taking the Green metro line to the Malostranská station. Then take Tram #22 and get off at the Pražský hrad stop. From there, it’s a five-minute walk to the main courtyard.
