Nové Město (New Town) is a district of Prague founded by Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor on April 8, 1348. Today it is considered the heart of the Prague trade with several galleries and shopping centers. It also has many squares and is the area where the city grew from the 14th century, when the historical center already gave more account of the development of the city. The best known attractions of this region are Vesceslau Square and the National Museum of Prague.

The course presented here aims to show you what to visit in Prague for a three-day stay.
1st day STARÉ MĚSTO (OLD CITY)
2nd day HRADČANY AND MALÁ STRANA (CASTELO AND CITY MINOR)
3rd day NOVÉ MĚSTO (NEW CITY)

FINAL GRADE

Visiting the city in three days, allows you to know in detail all its main attractions and with time to shop very calmly. But it can easily be reduced to two whole days, one being for each side of the Vltava River.
