We are still in Prague and it would be a good challenge for one to explore the dozens of exterior stairs hidden between the houses, buildings and streets. First, I will tell you about my most favorite. The stairs I’m telling you about are just stairs – they don’t have a name. So here is a note to help you orient yourself.
The starting point is right below the short street Pod Vlachovkou. The stairs connect three long streets – Kubišova, S.K. Neumanna and Nad Rokoskou. Along the stairs are old villas with exits right on the stairs. The view from the upper side of the stairs is unimaginable. You will have the main parts of the city in the palm of your hand. You can sit here for a while and check how many of Prague’s highlights you can identify. And then you can go for a walk on the above-mentioned streets to admire the art of Czech architecture of old villas.
Despite the stairs being in a silent neighborhood, the typical city noise is spread here. On New Year’s Eve it’s the noisiest. Local people come here with glasses and bottles of wine to see theatrical fireworks over the city. It’s a safe place.
