Splendid Spanish Hall at the Prague Castle was built in the 16th century by Emperor Rudolph II

The Spanish Hall is the largest ceremonial space at Prague Castle and one of the most beautiful of its halls. It was founded in 16th century for Emperor Rudolf II who had his collection of sculptures there, but completed only in mid-17th century. The hall got its name after Spanish horses stables that used to be below it. 

Its size is impressive: 43 metres long, 21 metres wide and 12 metres high. When the Spanish king Philip II. visited Prague, he honoured Rudolph II. with the Spanish Golden fleece decoration. A model of the decoration is exposed on the window in the Spanish Hall. Spanish Hall is nowadays used for ceremonial gatherings, large receptions of the President of the Republic, or festive classical concerts.
