Visit the Alchemists’ Paradise

The 16th century was a flurry of changing believes. The reformation, the counter reformation, witch burnings, and even such subjects as math were consider suspicious by some rulers and church officials. During this upheaval Prague would be an oasis for those who thought differently. It was known as the Golden Age of Prague where art was celebrated, science was highly regarded, and mystical and esoteric beliefs were welcomed. Alchemists even had a laboratory within the Prague Castle. All of this was orchestrated by the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf the II.
