Prague & the Czech Republic - Nove Mesto (Chapter)
This is the Nové Město chapter from Lonely Planet's Prague & the Czech Republic guidebook.
The ‘New Town’ – new in the 14th century, that is – wraps around the Old Town, and its sprawl of mostly 19th- and early 20th-century buildings finds a focus in the broad, historic boulevard of Wenceslas Square.
- Admire some of the city’s finest 20th-century architecture in and around Wenceslas Square, from the art nouveau extravagance of the Grand Hotel Evropa to the sleekly functionalist Mánes Gallery and the exuberant Dancing Building.
- Attend a performance of Dvořák’s music by the Original Music Theatre of Prague in the Víla Amerika.
- Learn about one of WWII’s most dramatic assassinations in the National Memorial to the Heroes of the Heydrich Terror.
