State Opera/Wenceslas neighbourhood

Is it safe to walk back alone to old town after the opera, at 11 pm? Guidebooks warn that the Wencesles should be avoided at night. It's not a long walk, perhaps 300m. Are there any quiet, dark places along the way, or will I be walking along places well-lighted, and there're people still around on the streets. This is in February.

you will be okay...a lot of that info is outdated and a old wives' tale. Lots of people around at that time.

The only real place of some concern might be at the opposite end of WENS. Square..near the National Museum.. (solicitation.) and even then you would have to know where,what and who you are looking for

Last June my son walked for about 1 hour from city centre to our B&B in Prague4 at about 4 am after a pub crawl tour. No one took advantage of his inebrated state, he arrived safe and sound with all his possessions intact. You will be safe.
