Our company, Královská cesta s.r.o., offers you long-term leasing of apartments
and office space in one of the most prestigious parts of the Old Town in Prague
1 at Karlova street no. 174/24.
The building was originally a Gothic house of aristocrats, according to the
earliest records of it from 1400. It gradually underwent Renaissance and Baroque
modifications, and between 1800 and 1802, it was reconstructed in Classicist
style based on a project from I. J. N. Palliardi. The house has contained the
inscription “U tří andělů” [“At the three angels”] since 1628. The building was
later torn down, and in its place construction engineer Novotný built a new
building at the site in 1905. That building was completely reconstructed in
1998. The new façade from Oswald Polívka was restored and adorned in 2002. The
house is located directly on the Royal Path [Královská cesta] about a 3-minute
walking distance from Old Town Square and the Charles Bridge.
The Royal Path is the most popular and most
beautiful place to take a stroll through Prague's historic Old Town. It is the
site of many cultural heritage sites, museums, galleries, theatres, romantic
hideaways, restaurants and cafe's. The description of it as the Royal Path dates
back to the Middle Ages, when future Bohemian kings marched or travelled along
it for coronation. The Royal Path began at the former seat of monarchs, the
Royal Courtyard. This seat was originally located in the building that is now
the Municipal House. The Royal Path led from the Powder Gate through Old Town
Square and Karlova Street, across the Charles Bridge, through the Lesser Town
Square an Nerudova street all the way to St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle.
The first king to attend a coronation ceremony along the Royal Path at Prague
Castle was Albert II of Habsburg in 1438. The last monarch to do so was Austrian
Emperor Ferdinand V, who was crowned in 1836. These events were always included
ringing of bells, music, song, floral decorations, shots and firing from cannons
as people's way of emphasising loyalty to their king. The Royal Path still has
this atmosphere today.
