This is the place where the Hussite wars more or less started. We climbed the tower which gives a great view over the Old and New town of Prague with the castle in the distant. A rather scary climb at the top on steep wooden stairs Big advantage of the New town Hall over the Old town Hall (the astronomical... More

New town hall is near the dancing house. Amazing sightseeing. You can visit it and mainly its tower from where there is a nice view of Prague. The entrance ticket costs 60 CZK not very much but to the top of tower you must walk up more than 220 stairs. But the view is worth the effort.

This tower is a little of the way but worth the visit. According to the sign on its wall, the structure in its present form dates back to 1452, pretty old! It stands 70 meters tall and is the tallest tower in Prague. Open to the public for tours.

We really enjoyed our trip to the new town hall (which is actually old but was the town hall for new town!). There are plenty of steps to climb but the views around the city are worth it.

For a fee of less than £1 you can saunter up the 200 + steps to the summit of this superb tower and take in some cracking views of the New Town ( Nove Mesto). The tower itself although not as big a tourist attraction as the bridge tower's or the Powder Tower still impresses. The New Town Hall is... More

Just like the new town, the new town hall is also approx 650 years old. Though a beautiful building, accompanied by a tower, I still won't keep this place amongst the must watch list in Prague. Be here if you do stumble across this erstwhile administration building. Else, there is lot else to see in Prague.

Stumbled on this when walking around Prague. The new Town Hall is from around 1378. The tower dates back to the year 1456, wish there was information to read about this, but had to find this in front from our guide book.

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.
