One of the most interesting Renaissance monuments in Prague is Hvězda Summer house. In 1534, Ferdinand I obtained a part of a forest - a property that had formely belonged to a monastery - and estabilished a deer park there.

The summerhouse was built according to design of his son - Ferdinand of Tirol - by the royal builders Hans Tirol and Bonifac Wolmut in the years 1555 - 1556. The construction with four floors was built on a layout of a hexagonal and the whole building including the interior decoration is based on contemporary symbolism, cosmological ideas influend by alchemy and antique motifs. In Europe similar buildings can be found, even though not frequently, only in Italy and France.
