Novy Svet, Prague
(4.5/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Novy Svet into our Prague itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Hradčany has many hidden streets. If you take the time to wander, there are many enclaves of picturesque quarters to enjoy. Nový Svět for example is just a little off Loreta Square on the way to Pragu...  more »
  • Really lovely walk through the streets, was very peaceful. Would recommend if you want a nice wander somewhere a little quieter. 
  • Novy's Svèt is easily reached by descending over Loreta, Cernin Palac and its gardens and continuing on Cerninska. This cobbled street lined with Pastel-colored houses, once the homes of the employees of the Castle, still retains its appearance of ancient village. Here you can breathe the same atmosphere of chaotic Golden Lane without spending a dime in absolute peace and quiet.
