The picturesque square surrounded by Baroque palaces is one of the main routes towards Prague Castle

Among the most notable buildings are the Schwarzenberg Palace and the Sternberg Palace, both part of the National Gallery (collections of Baroque and Renaissance art). The Archiepiscopal Palace and the Tuscan Palace, both works of the 17th century French architect Jean-Baptiste Mathey, are distinguished by their ornate facades. On Hradčany Square, you will also find the Carmelite Convent, which is sometimes open to the public, and whose garden offers an incomparable view of Prague.
