Archbishop’s Palace (Arcibiskupský palác)

The Archbishop’s Palace near Prague Castle has been the seat of Prague archbishops and bishops since the 1660s. The palace was built on the site of eight townhouses and in later times was rebuilt several times. It acquired its current appearance in the second half of the 18th century when it underwent a significant late Baroque reconstruction, the side wings and third floor were added, and the facade was decorated in Rococo style. The heart of the palace is the Chapel of St John the Baptist from the 16th century featuring wall paintings and stucco. The ceremonial halls are home to a unique collection of Parisian tapestries.
