Historic lanes and alleyways of New Town

New Town in contrast to the Old Town, Lesser Town and Hradcany   does not  forms  nowadays the district of originally preserved houses of medieval origin. New Town is from the late 19th century characterized as Prague "city". This is essentially a commercial  financial, administrative, cultural, and entertainment district,Nevertheless we can find hier, just a small distance from live trading avenuesrarely preserved nook with historic houses and street networks. Thus preserved clusters are mostly  on the places of former villages and hamlets that were here before the founding of the New Town. You will love these lanes, which in comparison to the Old Town overloaded streets offer peace, tranquility, relaxation and lots of interesting pubs, bars and cafes.
Alleyway between Spalena (Burnt) Street and Opatovicka street

The courtyard forms a part of alleyway Spalena Stret - Opatovicka Street
After passing by the yard that from Spalena Street we will find ourselves in a labyrinth of lanes making up the former settlement Opatovice. The appearance of this part of New Town reminds Old Town - in Opatovicka alley we see the house with a classical facade and with a beautiful stone baroque portal
