Lucerna Passage

An intricate system of passages runs under the Art Nouveau Lucerna Palace from 1920 connecting Vodickova and Stepanska streets; this is the Lantern passage. New Town is full of passages leading you to winding streets, small shops and interesting secret cafes. The Lantern passage, or Lucerna Passage, seems to be one of the largest and the most interesting. It is connected in a maze of passages to the Novak Arcade as well. Underneath the Palace you will find the entrance to the Lucerna Theater, the Lucerna cinema, a rock club, unique boutiques, a wine shop, new age crystal stores, Lucerna cafe, and even an upside down version of St. Wenceslas and his horse, by the one and only David Cerny hanging from the atrium of the Lucerna passage. In bad need of a renovation, the Lucerna passage is the epitome of Prague's faded grandeur, although the rich marble still looks impressive. The Grandfather of former president Vaclav Havel, whose family still owns part of the palace, designed the Lucerna arcade.
