Did you know that...

The House at the Golden Ring is a unique Gothic-Renaissance building in the neighbourhood of the Týn Cathedral with preserved fragments of late Gothic frescoes. The oldest records of the house date back to the 14th Century.

The building houses the permanent exhibition titled ‘Prague of Charles IV - the Medieval City’, which presents the metropolis and its transformation during the reign of Charles IV and other members of the Luxembourg dynasty. Another exposition titled ‘Prague 1606’ presents life in Rudolphine Prague in a unique way through the moving Sadeler Prospect. The building also hosts short-term exhibitions and various cultural events for the public. The house is named after its house sign - a golden ring - which it gained most likely in the first quarter of the 17th Century. Legend has it that one of the Old Town’s many ghosts lost the ring during a night of debauchery. A superstitious burgher living on Týn Street, who found the ring, hung it over the door of his house to protect against evil forces.
