Visited Prague as a couple in 2012 having in mind the drive to walk the streets and cover all touristic attractions in the city in 5 days. We stayed at a hotel in the suburb and got ourselves a weekly pass to move everywhere we wanted. Mainly used the subway to get to museums, plazas, etc. I found Prague delightful... More

Not an attraction. Just a large square with a mall and metro station. Do not waste your time going there.

A beautiful shopping mall, on five floors, with all sorts of first class shops, plus different food court on the top floor. Bathrooms are free and clean, their location is indicated on all floors. Need some time to go through all the floors. However lift is available if one wishes to avoid escalators. Paladium Mall can be reached easily on... More

The square itself is not a big thing but on a side is the Palladium mall where you can find a food court and some nice stores (the prices are not cheap).

The square was obviously nice thanks to all the beautifully restored buildings but I made the mistake of exchanging some money there and it goes without saying that I got robbed...I was misled by the 0% commission signs and the good exchange rate but for 20e instead of 500Kor I received 360 for exchanging less than their approved limit, something...

For those looking for a large modern mall - this is it. Connected directly to the Namesti Republiky metro station it is conveniently located. All the trapping of a modern mall including a food court on the top floor.

Republic Square, known locally as Náměstí Republiky is sort of an interface between the Old Town and New Town where you can find a decent sized shopping mall called The Palladium, a nice supermarket, the Municipal House as well as the historic Powder Tower. We visited Republic Square a couple times during our recent stay in Prague, attending a concert... More

This is where you will find the modern mall of Prague. It's a great way to get away from the tourists and just relax. There are free bathrooms and a nice grocery store to stock up on your water and snacks. The shops were fairly similar to an American mall and so was the food court. We hung out at... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
