Be careful of anything off of the main floor if your back is not without issues. Even the main floor looked cramped. Great production was kind of lost in the brutal experience of sitting for two hours without legroom of any kind.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický

If you are short of time the plane is a very convenient way as quick flight. Plenty of flights available. Least expensive is bus.
