The Baroque facade of the Prague Castle Riding School from the late 17th century forms nearly entire one side of the streed called U Prasneho mostu (By the Powder Bridge), which runs to Prague Castle from the northern side, via Deer Moat.
In the mid- 20th century the Riding School was converted into an exhibition hall.

At the same time garages were built on the area of the open summer riding school. A garden was laid out on their roofing which affords an interesting and unusual view of St. Vitus Cathedral and a part of the northern bulwarks of Prague Castle.
