Royal Garden was laid out in 1534 on the orders of the Habsburg Ferdinand I. From the owners he gradually bought old vineyards beyond the valley of the Brusnice stream and had a Renaissance garden laid out here, which later became famous for its rare botanical specimens and the exotic plants gained from distant countries. From the very beginning there were situated a number of buildings serving the entertainment of the nobility: the Ball Game Pavilion, the Royal Summer House, the Lion Court.
