Golden Lane-Zlatá ulička is a narrow ancient street formed of tiny colorful houses built right into the arches of the Castle walls. The small houses were originally constructed in the sixteenth century for the castle guards. Later they were used by goldsmiths and people from poorer classes.
The current scenes in houses have been created to show the life of former users. I like the seamstress house. :)

Our Dinner was at Medieval Tavern- U Pavouka
This tavern is tourist trap, but it is interesting experience. As I said, I love to do all those touristy things.
Medieval show with swordsmen, jugglers and belly dancers was fun.
Food was OK.
At the end, it was a fun night. :)
