General Description Welcome at four stars hotel located directly in the historical town centre, overlooking the 'Royal Route'. The Bishop's House is situated in the centre of the Prague Municipal Historical Conservation area - under the Prague Castle in the Lesser Town, about 60m from the Charles Bridge. Complete reconstruction of the building was finished in 1999. During the Romanesque period, at the end of the 12th century, the powerful bishop Prince Jindøich Bøetislav had a vast court built as a bishop's seat on the left bank of the Vltava river. His successors, bishops and archbishops, e.g. Jan of Draice (from which the name of the Draicke Square is derived) had the court extended and rebuilt. The fire in 1249, started by the rebels against the King Wenceslas I., caused according to the chronicler Kosmas an extensive renovation of the seat. In 1419 the court was plundered and burnt down. This was the fall of the court and its walls were used for the construction of houses of Prague bourgeoisie. The appearance of the house, today called according to its historical origin 'The Bishop's House', emanates from 1843, when the reconstruction of the 16th century semblance was finished after six years of work. Present archeological research, however, proved the evidence of the settlement in this place already in primeval and even neolithic times. Behind the Empire facade guests can find both comfort and genuine remnants of the past.
