But a couple of centuries ago, it would have caused quite different emotions. Prior to the general restructuring that transformed not that remarkable Mikulashskuyu street in the luxurious Avenue, the street served as a refuge to the Jewish population of Prague Castle, which in the 9-10 century moved here for permanent residence. Although before the reconstruction Jew population not more than 10%, and the street with adjacent gateways was a shelter for criminals, the poor and the urban adventure seekers. Other disasters did not pass by the current Paris street as well: each year this part of the city suffered from urban floods and fires, and epidemics of various infectious diseases almost never left dull gateways because of the constant humidity and overpopulation of local neighborhoods.
How to find it?The Cathedral of St. Nicholas at the Old Town Square can be considered a reference point to Paris street. The nearest metro station is Starom?stská (green line). If you are at the Old Town Square the store Cartier can be a good guide for you because with this store Paris street begins.
