obrázek 4 (17) Look for Tynská, Stupartska and Mala Stupartska streets. Look carefully as there is no sign UNGELT. This courtyard is just off the Old Town Square behind the Tyn Church. It is one of the  most important historical sites in Prague, a block of buildings, probably built in the 11th century, was originally a fortified merchants’ yard, where customs duties – ungelt – were collected.  The most important building here is the Granovský Palace with its arcaded loggia, one of Prague’s best preserved Renaissance treasures with beautiful sgraffito. Little street cafes in summer  or mulled wine in winter. There is an interesting collection of modern art in the street, Botanicus shop with organic herbal cosmetics and a beautiful Czech hand made glass design shop MATERIAL, you should stop by it is worth a visit.
