Another very small landmark in Prague which is located near the river Chertovka, and which can be quickly inspect a few minutes. Interesting only in conjunction with the capture of other attractions of the city – Charles Bridge, Museum Kafka, a sculpture with peeing men and an observation deck with swans. To consider it as a separate goal for the trip is not there is no sense of meaning, and not so much entertainment.

The narrowest street in Prague
The place is very popular with tourists, so if you want take a picture in splendid isolation, you have to wait for some time in line. I had a wild thought to come here at night, but as I said – just for the sake of one shot is hard, and meaningless yourself so bother.
In fact, this is not a street, but simply a staircase in the arch between the two buildings with a width of one person and a length of about 10 meters. The person in the body here is likely to just get stuck (and how practice shows – get stuck). To avoid congestion (and this can really become a problem if each side stumbles along ten people) there are pedestrian traffic lights installed.
The narrowest street in Prague
The lower end of the street is stuck in a dead end with a cafe, watering cans and benches. How good she is I do not know, did not go, but people Sat, in appearance – quite satisfied.
The place itself is nice and I got the impression that Many people find this street purely by chance, just paying attention on the incomprehensible crowd of people around the gap between the houses. I myself just watched as the passers-by triggered natural curiosity and they join the queue, taking out their fotiki.
The street is essentially a fire passage between the houses, one of few that have survived to this day. Called her name neighboring wine room – Chertovka. And the winery was named after the neighboring rivers – Chertovka. And according to legend, the river was named so because of the washerwoman Aloysia, with a damn nasty temper that came to these places to wash clothes and wash people bones.
The traffic lights are said to be hung not for advertising and zamanilovki, and at the request of the fire service, which did not give permission to open a business in a dead end. But without it requirements, the width of the passage of people somehow order movement in both directions.
