New Town was founded in 1348, so it's pretty old and full of great character. There's plenty of shops and cafes but don't forget to go in New Town Hall and up the tower. There's usually something going on in the town hall, music recitals when we were there and costume displays.

Although it does not look very inviting, this is the boulevard of money, beauty, and history. on the one side you have the opera and on the other side all the shops, cafes and lots of people needed to be seen. However, do not miss to wander around, enjoy the shops, have a cup of coffee and watch the rich... More

Also this where you can shop at C & A and Marks and Spencers to name but a few , plenty of churches and towers... More

Plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants for you to spend your time. Plenty of bars to keep your night busy. Just watch your pockets and valuables, especially if stopped by the many touts.

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.

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.
