Nerudova Street

The famous and picturesque Nerudova Street (King’s Road) that leads to the Prague Castle in Hradcany is also a wonderful experience in itself. The narrow cobbled alleyway is flanked with vibrant multihued pastel coloured burgher houses and is home to many embassies. I just love this street.

It was just 10 in the morning when I walked on this street and it was already completely buzzing with people and activity! People are out here early.

On this street you can find beautiful house emblems on the facade. Back in the olden times, the residents do not have house numbers. They identify and name their houses by their emblems located on top of the doors.

Hmmm. Must be an interesting job being a mail man in those days.

Just lovely isn’t it?
