Nice place, very strange culture wise and that

A right mix of folk here mind! There's some great western shops too, then some really cheap and chatty shops like that bankrot place. It's reasonably clean with a good mix of bars... read more

This part of town is just OK but there are more charming areas of this great city to spend part of the day.

New town still has many beautiful older buildings. Enjoy the atmosphere and the hustle and bustle of life in a truly historic city

We spent close to three hours wondering around... if it was NOT in beautiful Prague I might have rated it higher... but with old town, the castle and everything else around... this one can surely be skipped...

Although not as pretty as the Old Town, New Town ( NOVE MESTO ) is still a good area to visit. The architecture is fabulous and eclectic, Wenceslas square, national theatre, Mucha Muzeum,fantastic statues, Fred and Ginger Dancing House and many many superb sites to behold make for a wonderful visit. There are plenty of good pub's, bar's and restaurant's... More

Worth a look. This is the new square. This is a wide open street with lots of shops. Not as nice at the Old Town.

Old Town is miles better but New Town is still an interesting place to look around, go shopping and go to nice restaurants. Be careful what restaurants though as some are serious tourist traps. In the square, they play live entertainment, at my first night, I saw some fire eating dancers!

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.
