New Town is actually not so new as you may think. It was founded in 1348 by King Charles to the outside of the city walls. Because the old town was not big enough. You can find modern and luxury places in that area. It has large streets. Good place to walk around.

There are so many amazing and historical sites in this area,though it is called the New Town it is still a great deal older than many other cities.Lots to see and do,so many bars ,restaurants and cafes.Worth looking into the more modern history of the city as many important events took part in this area of the city.

Took the subway and think that is where my husband was pick pocketed. It was extremely crowded so that is why we suspect that area. He lost everything - passport, license, cash, bank card. Has been stressed ever since and had to deal with police report and Embassy. Has definitely ruined the vacation unfortunately.

Maybe not as attractive as old town, but still there are things to see around. Dancing building is one of them and you won't miss the national museum and Wenceslas Square anyway. You can spend some time in the streets, but it'd be better to aim only the more important places. Again, it is not the new town that counts,... More

Other than the National Museum which is quite attractive, don't waste your time walking over here when you can spend it in more pleasant areas of Prague.

It´s funny call this antient city The New Town. But its really nice for walking, full of good or bad bars and restaurants, shops atc. Of course, sometimes you have to be carefull ´cause of thiefs. But I mean bigger jeopardy is excelent beer for world best price. Be carefull and enjoy.

New town has fascinating architecture, great restaurants and is just enough removed from the center of tourist activity to be peaceful yet still have all of the major attractions within walking distance.
