Granovsky Palace…who knew?

Granovsky Palace…I never even knew I was royalty, much less Czechoslovakian royalty. The things you find unexpectedly on the internet. 🙂

Renaissance Granovsky Palace

The most interesting building in the Tyn courtyard is the Granovsky Palace, one of the Renaissance pearls of Prague. This house from 1558 is decorated with sgraffitoes and wall paintings and it has an arcade loggia. The paintings on the loggia depict scenes from Bible and Greek mythology. via

The road leads through a small, arched tunnel and onto Ungelt courtyard. Here you can stop for a cup of coffee at Ebel’s outdoor café, admire the refurbished murals and arches of Granovsky Palace and imagine how it must have been in the 11th century when the area was a closed yard for collecting duties on traded goods, hence the name “Un-gelt.” via http://www.prague-tourist.com/6.php
