Prague's Nove Mesto [ or New Town ] was created during the reign of Charles IV, when the city became the centre of The Holy Roman Empire, and the Old Town could no longer manage to absorb the stream of newcomers. Nové Mesto surrounds the Staré Mesto to the east and south and extends southward along the Vltava's east bank to the main railroad bridge. Geographically, it is one of Prague's larger districts. Culturally, it is rather varied and if you're into architecture you'll find the mixture of gothic and art nouveau in this district truly fascinating. The northerly areas of this Prague district are within walking distance of the Old Town, which means that you are close to all the nightlife and shopping hub. The Obecni Dum which resides right next to the Prašná Brána [Powder Tower] was one of the best decorated buildings in all of Prague and is now a classy shopping center in the city.
Nove Mesto is also home to the Národní Muzeum, or National Museum which sits high on a hill overlooking a long wide boulevard [the Václavské Námestí]. The National Museum contains many bronze busts of famous Czech citizens, as well as impressive collections of gems, minerals, metorites, and fossils found in the Bohemian mountains and forests.
