Novy Svet, Prague

(4.6/5 based on 75+ 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.

  • lovely little walk after passing by the castle. winding cobblestone streets, each house unique and quaint. little spots to stop for coffee and a bite to eat, though be careful where you choose - many ...  more »
  • It's a quiet neighbourhood over the Castle, unknown to most with beautiful houses and really is the ideal place for a romantic walk away from the crowds. We visited the morning before our ride to the Castle and literally we were our own!

  • Great, cozy and simply superb! I highly recommend to everyone. Charmful cafe in the historical center close to all sightseeings. Nice service and the best coffee in Prague. Not only will you experience tasteful coffee sorts but also delicious soups and desserts.
  • I must say that this place is fantastic. My partner and I were wandering around and found it by mistake and we had such a great time having beers and rum. Beautiful atmosphere and great service!
  • 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 Prague Castle. The area has a art gallery housed amongst a village like atmosphere. The Nový Svět cafe is a lovely quiet escape that has been recommended by the folks at Taste of Prague Foodie Tours.
  • Best cafe in Prague! Beautiful views, great coffee, and delicious chai tea lattes. Located in a quiet and hidden area behind the castle. They serve free tap water and have very clean bathrooms. The staff here is incredible! They are very friendly and take customer service to the next level.
  • A lovely setting up a quaint cobble street, very cosy. Great pea soup and goats cheese toast. Very enjoyable
