Parizska Street in Prague

Creative Commons/Aktron
The Parizska Street has always been a elite address in Prague. Today it is home to luxurious world brands, swanky hotels, cafes and high rise buildings. The street runs off the Old Town Square towards the Vltava River and crosses the Jewish Quarter. This street is an edgy contrast to the dark and somber Jewish ghetto that prevailed in the earlier days.
Vivid styles of architecture can be seen here from neo-Renaissance to neo-Baroque and other interesting styles. The facades of the buildings have richly adorned windows and balconies with extremely intricate motifs. It is home to many historical and cultural buildings. The street itself is lined with trees and boasts of the best shopping and dining experiences in the city. Designer brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Christian Dior, Prada, and Cartier find a place here. Exquisite Czech glass and Bohemian crystal works can also be found here.

The street was originally named St Nicholas Street after the St Nicholas Church at the Old Town Square. The main Parizska literally means Boulevard de Paris. The street has attributed this name in 1926, to acknowledge the help of France towards the Czech, at the end of the World War I, for gaining freedom from Austria and Hungary.

Exploring the Parizska Street ranks among the leisurely activities in Prague, even if shopping is not on your priority for your stay in Prague.
