Novy Svet, Prague

4.6
#309 of 1,220 in Things to do in Prague
Step away from the Castle District's main attractions to discover Novy Svet, a hidden street dating back to the 14th century. Beloved by locals, this small neighborhood more closely resembles a tiny historical village than part of a buzzing tourist destination. Walk along the picturesque cobbled street, take in the architecture of homes that have survived several centuries, and enjoy the momentary escape from the city's hustle and bustle. If time allows, stop into a local shop or cafe. By using our Prague trip itinerary builder , you can arrange your visit to Novy Svet and other attractions in Prague.

  • Some of my spolurecenzenti on TripAdvisor I endorse part of Prague the new world with the Café, so with your permission I will focus on each separately-and this applies to the site. It is a very nice little place and probably everyone will examine itself whether it make sense here. Technically, this is only a few houses and streets with cobblestones, on the other hand is a magic atmosphere unarguable. If you can manage photos with no parked cars, I'm sure you'll have a nice keepsake.

  • Cute little street, tucked away within Prague Palace. So interesting to see how people used to live. Fair warning: A bit small/cramped for anyone who is tall. Make sure to go in/out of all the little ...  more »
  • This picturesque small cafeteria, we discovered almost by accident while walking from the Castle. Very nice reception, (we were the first visitors), the friendly staff, the environment as in a fairy tale, coffee and wine, an excellent, excellent desserts, magic and unique atmosphere, here time passes so something else. To summarize, I can definitely recommend it and I give the maximum possible mark:-)

  • This is one the cafes I have in my list and I wanted to go for a long time. I’m glad I wasn’t disappointed. The coffee was very well prepared and I liked that they served a warm cup with it. (It’s not that often) I tried the pumpkin soup which was really tasty. It’s a bit tricky to adapt to the service since the menu is in the entrance wall and you have to get up and see what they offer and then order there or at your table. They could just have a small menu and so there is less confusion. Next time that I will come(and this is something I plan to)it will be ok since I know the place and how they work. But better for the cafe to adapt to the client and not the other way around. Despite everything I totally recommend it and I will be visiting in the future. Update: I visited this cafe today and the service was horrible. The man behind the counter when I asked for a drip said you can get get a batch brew which was not the best. His excuse was that on Sundays they are busy and they don’t offer drip. When me and my friends we got batch brew one of the guys asked for sugar for his coffee. The server basically laughed at his face for that and then brought it and dropped in if front of me with a bad attitude. So maybe next time you can be nicer to people that took 30 minutes trip to come to you cafe so you are rude to them and don’t serve them what you have on your menu. Rating reduced to 3 stars because I think for one bad sever the cafe shouldn’t suffer.
  • It is very pleasant and cozy place with a wonderful atmosphere, delicious coffee and desserts. Moreover, it looks like this cafe is from a magical parallel reality. Like from the world of Max Frei`s Eho. I want to come back here over and over again. :)
  • The sweet cakes here will make you want to live here, the beautiful old house as well and the coffee... yes, even the coffee is great. This one is not to be missed.
  • Quaint Cafe in adorable neighborhood with friendly staff and local feel. Both indoor and outdoor seating and not crowded (visiting in January). Restrooms available downstairs. Serving espresso drinks, teas, beer, small bites, and desserts. Has a great vibe that doesn't pander to the normal tourists.
  • Located in a magical area of the city.... was such a goooood coffee! And perfect spot to pause and process all the beauty of this area.
