The left bank of the Vltava River was traditionally populated by those who longed to be as near their sovereign as possible, to serve him, be seen and take full advantage of their position. These precious plots of land, situated beneath Prague Castle, were the preserve of the nobility, wealthy builders, craftsmen and artists of all kinds. These eclectic inhabitants built or bought houses here—houses, which for the most part, still exist today.
