Wandering around here early one morning was gorgeous. Quieter than the main square, lots of beautiful photo stops. We walked down by the river and found the faceless baby sculptures which are eerie. At night we came back to watch the swans being fed and take photos of Charles bridge

Nothing really to comment... Prague is stunning, this area is traditional and gorgeous, just go there and see it by yourself! It is a real middle European country, as traditional as it gets, more beautiful than you can imagine.

It's a nice evening hangout right next to the Charles Bridge and close to the castle complex. You can do some shopping and eating while admiring some old lanes and commercial buildings.

Down from the castle and enjoy the sights - down by the river, there's the Frank Kafka museum and of course from here you can walk across the famous Charles Bridge into the heart of Prague old town.

Mala strana is one of my favorite areas of Prague. I like more than Stare mesto. You are immersed in the atmosphere typical of the old Prague. You can walk for hours looking at buildings of different times, churches, museums.

Sooo cute! once you wander over the bridge, look for the cute little sidewalk cafe's, do some souvenir shopping, visit the church of the Infant of Prague, walk to the John Lennon Wall. It is an enjoyable couple of hours. And of course, stop and get a Pilsner!!!

Take the time to wander the streets and get off the beaten path. This old neighborhood is amazing and you can find little hidden spots and gems throughout. Whether you view this area from the castle above or just wander the streets from within. Take the time to take a leisure stroll.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
