Rosenberg palace

The reopened permanent exhibition takes visitors to the premises of the original Renaissance palace of the Rosenberg family from 1545-1574. It became the property of the Emperor Rudolf II in 1600 and remained in its original form until the middle of the 18th century, when it was radically rebuilt to house the Institute of Noblewomen. It includes a late Baroque chapel of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.

The premises of the Institute of Noblewomen were basically an unexplored area of Prague Castle until 1989. During the eight stages of its eleven-year restoration, a number of wall paintings were uncovered and restored, but additional partitions, lowered ceilings and other disturbing alterations were also removed.

The interior of the Institute of Noblewomen is made of period furniture, paintings and other utilitarian objects from the collections of Prague Castle. Among the historical artefacts, visitors will see historical furnishings from the Baroque period, as well as more recent interior elements from the turn of the Classical and Empire periods and rare goldsmith's works. An exhibition in the salon brings to life the furnishings and activities of the time when the premises served as the Institute of the Noblewomen.
