Top ways to experience New Town
The area
Neighbourhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres 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 theatres. National Theatre 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.

Our hotel, Hilton Prague, was located in the New Town area which was great since we did a lot of walking from the hotel and we covered a lot of the New Town on foot. Very different feel versus the Old Town area of Prague.

Nove Mesto ( New Town ) despite the implications of the districts name is in fact one of the oldest districts of the city and is the beating heart of this beautiful Bohemian city.
Much of what modern architecture you will spot in this district is in fact built around ancient square's ,architecture throughout this district is interesting and the history attached to the district is fascinating ,it's a major shopping area and is packed with pubs,cafés ,bars and restaurants and is most definitely well worth exploring if you're planning a holiday to Prague.
