4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Each house on Nerudova Street has its own symbol and story. For example, a golden lion, a horseshoe, and three black eagles each served as house numbers and often indicated the profession of the original owner. Go to No.12--symbolized by three fiddles--to see the house that belonged to a family of violin makers. The palace at No. 33 hosted balls and welcomed famous guests, including Mozart and Giacomo Casanova. The street bears the name of Czech writer Jan Neruda, who used to live in at "the two suns." (See if you can find it!) Most of the houses have been transformed into hotels, restaurants, and small shops.

  • The steep road that climbs from the little quarter to the Castle (even though we did it for convenience, downhill from the Castle where we were boarded by tram) is worth a visit for the number of interesting buildings with their insignia as "the three violins" or the "Red Lion", including the building that houses the Embassy of Italy. Picturesque and see. .
