OLD OŘECHOVKA (STARÁ OŘECHOVKA)
Old Ořechovka is the central family and terraced houses development around Macharovo náměstí and the central building designed by Jaroslav Vondrák in 1921. It was built in parallel with the residential house and became the business and social centre of the colony and later also the dominant feature of Ořechovka. It was the location of many stores, a marketplace, cinema, restaurant, and café with a wine bar. It still fulfils these functions even after almost a hundred years.
THE CORNERS OF OŘECHOVKA
The core of Ořechovka itself, i.e. initially “Vořechovka”, was built already from 1919 in the style of an English garden town. The intersection of ulice Klidná and ulice Dělostřelecká forms a small triangular square, which is the core of the small quarter of typified houses built in rondo-cubist style. This style can be seen only in the Czech Lands. It is actually the Czech variation of Art Deco. Walk through the surroundings and get to know Ořechovka.
THE MAX VAN DER STOEL PARK
The Max van der Stoel Park is at the intersection of ulice Patočkova, ulice Myslbekova and ulice Střešovická in Střešovice, Prague 6. It has an area of almost 2.5 hectares and was opened in 2014 during the construction of the Blanka Tunnel Complex as a component of the revitalization of the border between Střešovice and Hradčany. Here, you will find beautiful water bodies, which have been created thanks to the Brusnice Stream that flows through this area. The park is named after the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Max van der Stoel, who was the first western politician who contacted Charta 77 in Prague.
THE FAIRYTALE NEW WORLD (POHÁDKOVÝ NOVÝ SVĚT)
You can reach the New World in the Prague Castle Area in less than 10 minutes on foot along ulice Cukrovarnická. It is a highly picturesque corner with winding streets and small residential houses, which lies off the main tourist route, although the tourists have also partially discovered it. It is the former Hradčany suburb, which was established at some time in the mid-14th century on the old route to Střešovice and that to date still retains the fairytale atmosphere of the historical town of Prague.
Prague Castle is the most famous Czech castle, the seat of the kings and later the seat of the President. In its history, it has served twice as the main residence to the Holy Roman Emperor. A component of Prague Castle is the monumental Cathedral of St Vitus, the traditional site of the coronation of the Czech kings and their final resting place, which is also the repository of the Czech coronation jewels. A walk to Prague Castle deserves its own plan. Make your plan at home and you can be enjoying the Castle Courtyard within a few minutes. You have an advantage, you live just next door, and you can thus visit the place at any time.
THE FAMOUS LORETA
If you are taking a walk to Prague Castle or to the New World, you cannot miss Loreta, the Loreta Chapel with the tower and its famous chimes. A short distance from it is the Church of Our Lady of the Angels, which features a Nativity Scene every Christmas, which dates back to the mid-18th century and that was inspired by the Neapolitan nativity scenes. It is an unforgettable family Christmas walk.
