Nový Svět – Charming and quiet

The area of Prague castle’s neighbourhood (called Hradčany) is quite crowded (mostly by tourists of course). But there is a street there – called Nový Svět (New World), which is a surprisingly quiet place where you can easily get ‘lost’. Nový Svět used to be a poor, but picturesque quarter of Hradčany, which always attracted artists – many of them lived or are still living there.

There are a lot of things not to be missed at Nový Svět – check out the door handles – there are a couple of really interesting ones. If you have kids or would just like to get back to your childhood, there is a playground discreetly hidden behind the wall lining the alley (open in warm days).

Last but not least – there is a pleasant small café in one of the houses. Check it out – the coffee is good and the prices are friendly.

If you are heading to the area of Prague Castle, Nový Svět should be definitely on your agenda.
