Archbishop's Palace

(Czech: Arcibiskupský palác)

The Archbishop’s Palace at Hradčanské Square has been the seat of Prague bishops and archbishops since the 1660s. The original palace in Lesser Town was burnt down in 1420 by angry supporters of the Hussites, prompting Habsburg ruler Ferdinand I to have a replacement built.

The Palace was rebuilt several times and today is the headquarters of the Catholic Church in Prague and is not open to the public
