“A great launching pad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Incredible collection of late 19th century architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Just like walking on the campus of UVA is a primer on architectural column styles, New Town in Prague is an open textbook and catalog of late 19th century and early 20th century art and architecture. Building after building and block after block, you can find gem upon gem. We chose a tour guide wisely who guided us around and in the best of the best. Definitely worth spending time.

“Less interesting the the other parts of Prague.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

While we did have a nice time strolling through the streets of the new town in the evening, this part of Prague was by far less interesting than the other lovely parts of the city.
Still, it's worth a 2-3 hour visit, just to make sure you did not miss anything, especially around Wenceslas square.

“Good meeting spot”

Stark difference to the old town as there are lots of modern shops etc in this area. Central location and an ideal meeting point.

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

In every corner of this square there is a fascinating building. There are so many things to see such as the tower, the astronomical clock, the Church of St Nicolas and the Church of Our Lady before Tyn. This place looks amazing at night, especially during the festive period when it is lit up and full of Christmas market stalls.
