an authentic cafe in old tram cars, on Vaclav Square

Nove Mesto is the new town (as opposed to Stare Mesto, the old town), never mind it was established first in 1348. It runs from Republic Square south, via Vaclav Square – the most central place in Prague, perhaps – and further along the Vltava river, which is an especially attractive area when it comes to late19th  and early 20th Century architecture.
