"House numbers mystery" Prague Transportation Tip by r13

Prague Transportation: 716 reviews and 706 photos


On the picture house on the left has postal adress "Ovocny trh 535/15" and on the right "Ovocny trh 967/17". Huh?

Do you see number 967/17 - no. Street names are written on the red shields, but house numbers in the street - on blue ones (15 and 17 in this case). IGNORE the RED numbers! These are building numbers in real estate registry - important for house owners and City Magistrate clerks.

So if your hotel reservation says something like "Ovocny trh 535/15, Praha 1", look for street "Ovocny trh" and then folow the blue numbers untill you find No 15.
