The Daliborka is part of the palace tour. It's a rather small room you go down to see some old torture devices. A little creepy to think about people doing this in the old days.

You only peek thru a gate and see one room. You enter nothing. We have Prague card so was free for us, but if you have to pay, do not pay.

Located at the end of Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička) Daliborka tower was a prison. One of it’s prisoners was knight Dalibork whose name gave a name to the tower. Present exhibition depicts prison life: tortures instruments, stone well where prisoners died of hunger and etc.

streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
