The art of reinvention

Who needs souvenir shops? Prague’s Golden Lane certainly doesn’t. That’s why the adorable alley of 16th-century miniature homes is ditching the knickknacks and becoming little museums instead. Once home to the king’s archers and later to artists, the lane has been closed for a year for the transformation.

It’s set to reopen on June 1. While the bookshop at number 22 — Prague-born, Jewish author Franz Kafka’s old stomping grounds — will stay the same, the interior of other buildings will become replica dwellings of a medieval doctor, herb doctor, royal archer and seamstress. Others will become a goldsmith’s workshop and an inn.
