The Swedish Embassy to the Czech Republic is located on Úvoz street, in Hradčany, the castle region of Prague. It is close to the Strahov Monastery. The embassy has a great view of the rest of Prague because it is located up on the hill. A pedestrian path, named after Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Jews from the Holocaust, leads from embassy up to the Petrin Hill.
