Zlatá ulička. Playing with lights.

Zlatá ulička, or the Golden Lane, is a street inside the complex of Prague Castle.
Houses were built at the end of XVI century. Common people lived there up to the 1950s.
Among them, the famous fortune-teller, Ms. Průšova, and many alchymists, whom Rudolf II brought to the court to produce gold.
By the early 20th century Golden Lane had become the home of poor artists and writers. Franz Kafka lived at No. 22 in 1916 and 1917 as well as the amateur filmmaker Mr. Kazda, in the 1950s.

Today, visitors can see original interiors. I much enjoyed to play with my camera using the lights coming from the windows and dreaming of old time stories at the Castle.
