Prague Old Town
tips and insights


Prikope and Parizska are the two most fashionable shopping streets.

Getting around

Prague Old Town is compact. It's usually best explored on foot.

The Metro

It is usually a faster means than surface transportation in getting to areas of the city beyond the old town. It is admirably modern, clean, inexpensive, and convenient.

However, whether you are in a crowded subway car or bus, or at a crowded tourist attraction, be wary of pickpockets.

Superb film location

Prague is a filmmaker's dream because of the Baroque and Renaissance architectural backdrops it provides. Many films have taken advantage of the city's picturesque shooting locations, including the Academy Award-winning film Amadeus.

Prague New Town

Just south of Prague Old Town lies Prague New Town. It's "new" in name only because it gained its appellation 600 years ago.
