Time Out says

This tiny stairway is good for a fun photo but not for the claustrophobic traveler

Squeezed in between two buildings off U Lužického semináře street, this narrow walkway is less than 20 inches (or 50cm) wide. You can press a button on either end to signal a small “walk/don’t walk” traffic light overhead that you want to enter. The “street” is actually a flight of stairs connecting U Lužického semináře with Čertovka restaurant (feel free to pass on a meal or a drink here) that drew traveler attention, particularly after adding the traffic lights. Consideration is key if it’s crowded because two people can’t pass from opposite directions, and the restaurant patrons need it to exit. So, opt for a light meal or take a deep breath before this kitschy, five-minute experience. 

Time Out tip: Take the traffic lights with a grain of salt and be prepared to turn around –not all tourists obey them.

U Maleho Glena: For a live jazz in an intimate basement every night of the week
Shakespeare & Sons: For an independent English bookstore carrying local authors
St. Nicholas Bell Tower: For a curated Czech history exhibit and 360-degree views
