About the hotel
The building now housing the Hotel Residence Lundborg used to be called "U modre'ho Ivawhich means "At the Blue Lions". The very first note about the building dates from 1336. A few decades later King Karl IV ordered the construction of a new bridge to replace the Judith Bridge, which was destroyed by a flood in 1342. The remains of Bridge Judith can still be admired at the entrance, in the dining room and in the wine cellar of the hotel.During the last hours of the 30 Years' War the Swedes were stopped at the Charles Bridge 1648 in Prague. The building was probably renovated or additions were made around 1770. The beautiful paintings on the ceilings of many rooms probably derive from this renovation.
