This palace was home to the Bohemian kings and princes from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and has been added to by successive nobility. The palace houses Vladislav Hall, the largest secular space in medieval Prague that was built between 1492 and 1502 by Benedikt Ried, a German mason. Nowadays, the Hall is used as the venue for the inauguration of the Czech President, the last occasion being in 1989, when Vaclav Havel was sworn in. There are several rooms off the main hall, including the Diet and All Saints Chapel.
