Biskupský dvůr, which translates as ‘The Bishop’s Court’ is connected to Biskupské street in Prague’s Old Town.
The Bishop’s Court lies in a place where, in the 13th century, there was a fortified settlement belonging to the order of the red crosses, which ensured its inhabitants and surrounding areas security.
The current name of the street is derived from the orders of the Prague archbishops, which the court obtained from the crusaders in the 17th century. The street also bears the name “Špitálský dvůr”.
In 2009, a total reconstruction of the courtyard of the Bishop’s Court was carried out, revitalizing the lawns and pavements so that space can be used for various mass events including theater performances. A lovely space to relax in Prague!
