Beautiful historical houses, streets lined with trees, lots of cultural opportunities and all of this a stone’s throw from the centre of Prague: this is Královské Vinohrady. The green park Riegrovy sady is lined on the one side by Polská ulice and right behind this is the luxury Mánesova ulice. In just a few minutes, you can reach the National Museum from here, Wenceslas Square or the main railway station, but also the greenery in one of Prague’s most popular parks: Riegrovy sady.
Mánesova ulice is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Prague. Renovated old houses can be found here, there are a lot of luxurious and stylish restaurants, bars, cafés and tea rooms to visit. Kaaba is for example definitely worth a visit, with a luxury interior in a Brussels style.
The street starts at náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad with its dominant feature, the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord and ends at the crossroads with Španělská behind the National Museum.
There are a lot of remarkable buildings on Mánesova. In the upper part (nearer to náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad) the houses tend rather to be late geometric Art Nouveau in style, designed by Josef Kovařovič or Bohuslav Homoláč. On the contrary, the lower part of the street is full of neo-Renaissance buildings dating back to the end of the 19th century. Some spacious flats have luxury balconies and represent the ideal form of housing for people of all ages. You will find here peace and quiet as well as all the conveniences of a big city in the immediate vicinity.
Interesting buildings here also include the Sokol hall in Riegrovy sady designed by František Marek, or Gočár’s “House of Agricultural Education” on Slezská ulice. Not far away is the Vinohrady Theatre offering high quality cultural experiences, the luxury Aromi restaurant or the Royal cabaret theatre.
Life on Mánesova is a dream for many people. Just go and have a look and make up your own mind!
