Novy Svet, Prague

4.7
#294 of 1,254 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.

  • En route from Prague Castle to the Strahov Monastery to around just a little bit and went for a stroll. It was a pretty amazing Street.

  • If you have the time not just galloping race around the landmark points, not a bit more .... Here is you can't hurry, here you just need to feel and have fun.

  • We spent a few nights in a holiday apartment in the Nový Svět 2. It was simply gorgeous! The building, the apartment and the location... Who wants to meet Prague at its best, not coming past on the Nový Svět!

  • Nice little cafe, very cosy and perfect for escaping the cold. We had a soup and hot chocolate and both were very nice. Staff were friendly. We would definitely recommend coming here if you're in the area
  • I was mistreated by the owner when I started asking about the food because they didn't have a menu in English. When I asked the second time what were the toasts available he replied by saying that he wouldn't answer me again. When I asked a suggestion of dessert he just pointed to what was available. I think he realized he was being rude and made a comment about being tired. Not impressed with the place at all. I took my family there as a surprise as I had read so many nice reviews and because it was highly recommended by a Prague Food Guide. Even the balcony that is so raved about was very simple. Unless you speak Tchek or go with locals, you should think about skipping this place.
  • Great little cafe in Novy Svet. The hot wine was very nice.
  • Did not like the place- saw a lady being mistreated this week by the man working there. She was a foreign tourist asking for some information in English about the food at the menu, which was all in Czech and not only the man (probably the owner) did not answer her questions, but kept making sarcastic remarks. Really upset about this incident so I left with my boyfriend. Apparently this place does not cater well for tourists, only Czechs
  • Great coffee (including my favorite flat white), perfect service and atmosphere.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
