As the title says - similarly to twin Nova Louka street, unless you are a rich shopper, you don't have really much to do here. Although it's likely you live in a hotel here or somewhere nearby. Anyways, it's very pretty and well-maintained street. Worth a stroll.

We parked by the Albert Supermarket not far from the bus station and walked the full length of the valley walking down on one side of the river and returning on the other side of the river. The day we went was slightly overcast but this did nothing to detract from the beauty of this spa town which is full... More

last time I was here it was pouring of rain and it was lovely, this visit the sun was shinning and the place just looked stunning,difficult to try and get a great angle for a photo but still worth just walking along.

Really nice to walk around, have your picture taken. You should go up one side of the river and come down the other on the way back.

Very nice place to walk during the day or evening! Renewed buildings and streets. Even cafes and restaurants are very expensive, i would suggest to have a snack over there. Kid liked musical steel steps along the walkway!

A pretty street that is worth a walk around and a stop for a coffee in one of the fancy cafes. There are many boutiques which are out of my particular price range but the architecture is a great photo opportunity. Many small bridges cross the river which runs down the middle of the street and offer different views of... More

Karlovy vary is a very pretty, relaxing place to visit. It is lovely to stroll along this street. Things are better priced than in Prague, but most are cheaper again in the suburban shopping centres, except crystal which isn't available out of the tourist strips. We both love this little city and would recommend it for couples to take a... More

We loved Karlovy Vary....and this street is the main reason. It should be a UNESCO. The buildings were wonderful to admire, and the street was perfect for strolling.
