Get lost! Don’t stay in the city centre! Explore! Discover! Yeah… that’s what we’re trying to say – you get to see the real life, the real city and much more. Let us show you this cool district of Prague called Nusle.
We started our walk in the park called Ztracenka. Absolutely incredible and epic views. Beautiful garden and yeah, you’ll be there probably by yourself, just like us. You’ll also get a pretty sweet view of Vyšehrad castle.
If there’s something significant in this area, then it’s definitely the Nusle bridge. 485 meters long and 42,5 meters tall, this bridge also hides a metro inside!
On our way down to Nusle we had to do one stop – to meet our favourite robot from Star Wars – R2D2. This little guy hides in the park called Folimanka and it’s actually a vent of a nuclear shelter. Super cool!
Another piece of art you shouldn’t miss is a lamp. Yes, a lamp. Of course it’s not just a regular lamp, but it’s actually a memorial to the people who took their own life and jumped the mentioned Nusle bridge. The lamp was created by Krištof Kintera and it doesn’t shine up like a normal lamp, but it’s actually shining up. The idea behind it is really powerful…
You know what’s the benefit of exploring Nusle? You’re literally 8 minutes tram ride from the city centre and the streets are tourist-free. You get to meet locals and their life and no masses of tourists. If you didn’t realize that by know, let me tell you one thing – hop on a tram and start exploring other parts of Prague than just city centre. You’ll love it, trust us.
Hungry? Don’t worry, we’ve got a great tip for you! It’s called Retro Jídelna u Věrušky and it is a canteen. It’s great – affordable prices, retro-vibes interior and charming ladies serving the food. They will most likely not speak English, but if you come with a smile on your face, they will reward you with a tasty meal.
Our friend Zdeněk has a shop in the same street. It’s called Opraveno and if you break your beloved iDevice, he’ll fix it for you. And not only that: he also has our book in his shop so you can check that out or of course you can get it here on our website.
So this is just the beginning of our trip to Nusle – there’s so much more to discover – great pubs, coffee places, cheese stores and so on and on. We’ll keep covering not only Nusle but also some other parts of Prague so you can see some of the real life in Prague. For the whole video tour, check out our latest video:
