The Royal Garden of Prague

The Royal Garden is a long stretch of green along the northern side of the Prague Castle. It is one of the seven gardens surrounding Prague Castle.

The Royal Summer Residence, or commonly known as the Summer Palace, occupies the eastern end of the garden. This is the most important building inside the Royal Garden built between 1538-1563.

Right in front of the Summer Palace is the Lion Courtyard. The name was derived from the hobby of keeping exotic animals here by one of the rulers of Prague.

Somewhere in the middle of the Royal Garden is the Royal Ball Game Hall. This is something like an indoor stadium with badminton courts in the modern days.

Near the western end of the Royal Garden lies a yellow-colour building which looks like a guest house.

Further west from this building is the Riding School of Prague Castle and the Powder Bridge which leads to the entrance of Prague Castle from the Royal Garden.
