A very simple park, not much in there, but a nice green space across from a University and in an area full of restaurants and shops. A lot of tram stops cross over there, and only a block from the river. All in all a good park.

Nothing special here, just another park to grab a seat and rest for a while, before walking through the new town area.

I lived near the Charles Square. Already five years old, I went with my aunt at the Mass in the church of St.Ignatius. On its realization contributed celebrity architect Carlo Lurago (protagonist of the early Baroque in Bohemia), sculptors M.V.Jäckel and I.F. Platzer. Also, my photo is older, it is to see her a piece of Charles Square-largest square in... More

Very verdant park near the town hall. This park has paths to wander, benches to sit, a fountain to peruse, some historic trees and a statue. Neat to wander through, or to just get away from the bustle of the business part of Prague.

Nothing special, but if in the area worth a look. During the day its a nice peaceful park with the new town hall and cathedral in the immediate vicinity. In the evening all the unsavoury types come out and take residence on the many benches.

There's nothing really worth a special trip. We strolled the town and the trolley left us here. We bought a couple cups of coffee and kicked back and enjoyed the scenery for a few minutes.

it is immediately outside the cathedral and the old town hall so it is a pleasant place to sit in the sunshine and rest.

There is an interesting baroque church, New Town’s Town Hall, where the famous first defenestration took place, an important mass transportation node and a hospital. But that’s all worth of visiting and in fact in all cases you do not need to get into the park itself. In fact strolling in the park is not interesting and might not be... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
