Quiet Streets of Prague
Posted by Avital Pinnick on January 6, 2014
It’s hard to believe that the old part of Prague has some quiet areas. These photos were taken mainly on Černínská street, which is surprisingly quiet, despite its proximity to the palace. If you’re going to lie down on a cobblestone road to photograph the sun bouncing off the interesting texture of the stones, make sure the road is empty. It also doesn’t hurt to have someone like Ivan along to keep an eye open for cars.
These old houses on Nový Svět are still private homes.
I have no idea how they manage the small doorways. Czechs tend to be rather tall; here’s a photo of Ivan for comparison. I could fit comfortably under the door, but I’m only 5′ tall.
