Often called the most beautiful Rococo building in Prague, the Goltz-Kinsky Palace is now part of the National Gallery Art Museum. The fancy looking pink mansion was built by Count J.A. Goltz on the foundation of an older Medieval building in 1755. The original foundation can be seen in the Romanesque and Gothic cellars which have been restored and opened to the public. After he died in 1768 another Count, František Oldrich Kinský, bought the mansion and made it his family home for generations. Baronnes Berta Suttner–Kinský, who was born in the family home in 1843, went on to be the 1st person to win the Noble Peace Prize in 1905. From 1893 to 1901 the palace served as a German Grammar school which famed local author Franz Kafka attended. In 1948, the Communist leader Klement Gottwald gave a speech from the balcony declaring the start of his party’s oppressive policies on the people of Prague. We will see more from this era of Prague’s history at the Communist Museum later on this free Old Town Prague walking tour.
