When visiting Prague, it pays to stray off the main tourist drags and explore these charming and unique streets.

Pařížská is Prague’s most luxurious street. Located in the heart of Prague, the street is flanked by trees and historical Art Nouveau buildings and home to some of the best luxury shops and restaurants in town. From Yves Saint Laurent to Givenchy to Fabergé, this is the perfect destination for window-shopping in style.

Na Kampě Street

Na Kampě is a street located right under Charles Bridge. Huge, full of trees, flanked by historical buildings, and often the spot for art exhibits and live events, this is a great starting point for exploring Kampa Island. Kampa is famous for its sculptures of giant crawling babies, the modern art Museum Kampa, and Devil’s Stream, an artificial channel that once used to power local mills.

One of the oldest streets in Prague, Havelská dates back to the 13th century – and so does the outdoor market that still runs on it. The market sells vegetables, fruits, and traditional snacks during the week, and becomes a souvenir market during weekends. The street is only two and a half blocks long, and most of the buildings around it are reconstructions, but the market itself – and the old history of the area – are enough to merit a visit.

Nerudova Street

Nerudova Street takes you up to the castle and offers beautiful views, making it one of the best streets in Prague to explore on foot. Surrounded by ancient burgher houses and well known for its ancient house signs – intricately decorated signs that were used to mark addresses before house numbers became popular. House number 41 (originally called “At Three Black Eagles”) was once the home of poet Jan Neruda, after whom the street is named.
