  Houses along Nerudova Street
by bpwillet

This street is appropriately named after Jan Neruda who lived along this narrow passage in the mid 19th century. Unlike today, Prague didn't use house numbers until the late 1700's. The houses were distinguished with signs and other features that set them apart from their neighbors. The street is the home to both Italian and Romanian embassies (in what were once Baroque palaces). There are a number of crests or other decorations that you may see on the rows of houses as you make your way up towards the castle. Along the street are some cafe's to recharge your energy or shops to get recharged batteries.

Directions: Go right of the Church of St. Nicholas from Little Quarter Square. As you walk up the street you will be heading towards the castle.
