  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview Investigate the splendours of the New Town in Prague. Called Nove Mesto by the locals, the name is nowadays a misnomer as the district dates back to the 14th century and offers the visitor some of the most wonderful architecture in Prague.

    Perhaps the most well known of places in the New Town is Wenceslas Square. Built originally as a horse market, the square has been the centre of many important historical events, most notably an uprising in 1989 which contributed eventually to the fall of communism. Nowadays it is a vibrant area full of shops, restaurants and hotels.

    Not only did the New Town have its horse market in the 14th century but it also had a cattle market located in Charles Square and a hay and straw market in Senovazne Square. It may be hard to believe today, but the construction of the new town meant that Prague became Europe’s third largest city. As you wander around the area you will behold a vestige of the greatness of the place in its heyday.

    Visit Republic Square to see the impressive Municipal House, built on the site of King Wenceslas’ Royal Court Palace. Go to Alois Jirasek Square named after the famous Czech dramatist who lived there. See his statue preside over the square, now a curious mixture of old and new. Gaze in wonder at the modern face of Prague in the shape of the ‘dancing house’.

    Finally, enter the bullet riddled crypt of the Saints Cyril and Methodius Church to find out about the incredible story of the seven Czech parachutists who assassinated Reinhard Heydrich in 1942 and held off 800 Nazi soldiers for hours before being brutally killed.

    This tour of the Fascinating New Town is an essential on any holiday itinerary for those who love history, culture, architecture and beauty.
