“Many ways to get to Nerudova str.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Secret tip from homeboy of Prague : you can also get tu Nerudova street like this :
if you go up alongside the U.S. embassy (at Trziste street), there is a special house splitting the street into 2 little streets. Here, at Aquarius restaurant, turn to the right and up. Soon you will find at the left side the nice local restaurant called Baracnicka rychta. Continue through the passages and gates, and you will end up in the middle of Nerudova street. This shortcut is completely out of tourist.mainstream , but nice, calm and typical ,, Lesser townish '' from old times...

“Don't get the fuzz about it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

I don't really understabd what's special about the street. I have walked down several streets in Prague, which are fortunatelt less steep whixh are as beautiful as Nerudova. Maybe a guide is needed with some extra info to really appreciate it.

“Nerudova Street: The passage connecting Prague Castle to Charles Bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Nerudova Street is the passage way which links Prague Castle to Charles Bridge through the area known as the Lesser Town. The street is named after 19th century Czech writer, Jan Neruda.

Due to its position, Nerudova has been an important historic passageway, including being the route taken during coronation processions of Czech kings. Also there are some historical locations that you can locate along Nerudova, many identifiable by the house signs located above the doorway and building entrances. For example, the Bretfeld Palace (house .33) was the location of grand balls rumoured to have been regularly attended by Mozart and Casanova, who might have also shared lodging at this location at one time or another. Additionally, there is now an endless amount of restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and other places to spend money along the Nerudova.

Unfortunately, during our recent visit, we found Nerudova to have become quite touristy over the past ten years to have lost quite a bit of the charm we had remembered from past visits. A lot of old speciality shops that we recalled now seem to be long gone, replaced with fast-food outlets and an endless row of souvenir shops. This was sad to see. However, the buildings remain well decorated, attractive and provide an atmospheric passage in route to Prague Castle from the Old Town. As such, it is not difficult to for visitors to enjoy themselves in this historic area of Prague.

“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

I stayed right on Nerudova Street, and it was honestly a fantastic location to explore the whole of Prague. Away from the craziness of the other side of the river, it was quiet and peaceful later at night, but quickly got busy in the morning. The street is packed with souvenir shops and restaurants, but the Trdelnik shop was one of my favourites.

“It's ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

The street is full of shops and nice liberty style buildings. Once upon a time (not so long ago, in 1990) the shops were so different: you could find handmade soccer balls and sportswear similar to the ones used in europe in the '60s. The shops and markets were almost empty, so nowithe view is quite different and can find here all the shops and brands that you can find the consumerist western countries.
