Info text

Today's appearance of the Liechtenstein Palace in the upper Lesser Town Square was arrived at through connecting several older Baroque buildings under a monumental Classic façade at the end of the 18th century. The most renowned owner of the palace was Prince Charles of Liechtenstein, who, as governor organized the execution of the twenty-seven leaders of the Estate Revolt after the Battle of the White Mountain in 1620. The members of the families of the condemned

came to the palace to ask for pardon but to no avail. The execution was carried out on the Old Town Square. The tragedy is commemorated by twenty-seven stylized cast-iron heads. They are set in front of the palace on the guard stones near the sidewalk curb. They were put in place during the last reconstruction of the palace in 1993 and their author is sculptor Karel Nepraš.
Today the palace is the home of the Music School "AMU" (Academy of Musical Arts) in Prague.
