It's so narrow that there's a pedestrian traffic light to indicate when you can go up or down it. Two people can't walk through it at the same time. Unusual and interesting, but not really a must-see.

On our last night we were looking for somewhere for dinner and had on previous nights walked past the narrowest street but we decided to go down and see if we could get a table reservation, to our luck we could. We had a lovely meal overlooking the water, service was good and the beer was cold, a very enjoyable... More

The Narrowest Street in Prague is a wonderful curiosity and a great little tourist attraction that is fun and in my opinion well worth seeking out. Measuring 19.6 inches in width it's a steep set of stairs leading down to the Certovka Canal and the superb Certovka restaurant ( iced cold beer's) . There are a set of traffic lights... More

It is a bit irony to see traffic lights at a street! 50 cm wide. The name of the street is Vinarna Certovka. Only one way is possible. Even two kids can not cross each other. At the end there is cafe, so you have to go back the same way to go back to main street Easy to find,... More

It is fun to stumble upon to it. Especially kids will love it but the traffic lights doesn't seem working as lots of people just go inside, take selfie and run back.

Vinarna Certovka is the narrowest street in Prague in one of the narrowest in the world. Two people can't cross it at the same time and there's a traffic light for pedestrians. It's an interesting visit

There's a very nice restaurant at the bottom of the stairs called I think, Certovka. The décor has a sense of humor. The food is good. Four of us all enjoyed our meals. I had the stroganoff which was very good. We had a table right on the canal with a view across the river and toward the Charles Bridge.... More

Not a street itself, but a good place to viist if you have time. At the other side you'll find a cozy bar with a nice view to the Charles Bridge.

Vinárna Čertovka is a narrow path between the buildings in the old city part in Prague, next to Čertovka stream near Charles Bridge. In order to avoid people meeting in the middle, someone put a traffic light on each sides of the path.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
