Golden Lane is a street built in the 16th century, to house Rudolf II's castle guards. It consists of small houses, painted in bright colours.
Many of the houses are now souvenir shops, and there is a museum of medieval armoury within the former 14th-century fortification accessible from Golden Lane.
