A street in the Lesser Town, which links the Lesser Town square with the streets Úvoz, Radniční stairs and Ke Hradu. It runs on the axis of an ancient road, which led to Prague´s Vltava crossings and later to its bridges; buildings around it were erected and then destroyed over and over again during natural disasters and wars. Originally, the street was much narrower and there were timber beams on the steeply sloped ground so that horses could lean on them during climbing or descending. The street has bore its current name, which reminds of the stay of writer Jan Neruda, since 1895. One of the most beautiful and romantic streets in Prague features mostly Baroque façades, which often hide Renaissance or even older architectural elements. The collection of historic porches, doors, locks and door signs is also unique.
