The late Baroque aristocratic palace is located just by Charles Bridge.

In 1740's Prince Vinzenz Paul Mansfeld built his representative palace on the Royal Route. This four wing palace captures features sculptures on the portal (coat-of-arms of Prince Mansfeld, vases and angels) and a fountain with a statue of Neptune in the courtyard. 

This is the palace where Milos Forman in 1983 filmed parts of his Oscarwinning flm Amadeus, and where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself actually performed.


The interior of Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace stands out for its magnificent main (dance) hall and beautiful fresco paintings.

The main room of the palace, the great hall, recalls the style of contemporary Viennese architecture. Fresco decorations on the ceiling depict Olympian gods.

Amazing not only in terms of their artistic value, the frescoes are also unique, as they have been left untouched since their creation in the 1760s. This is something rarely seen elsewhere in Europe!

In 1840, the palace held the first exhibition of paintings by the Fine Arts Union. Since 2010 Colloredo-Mansfeld palace houses a Museum of Young Art with a growing collection of contemporary Czech art.

The palace designed by European architects and artists is a great example of Prague's rich cosmopolitan history.
