I rented an apartment for 2 weeks in Mala Strana, just off the Charles Bridge. I never ran out of things to do! Using Mala Strana as a home base, I was able to take a tram anywhere, walk to many of the premier Prague...More

This area was by far my favourite in Prague and one of my new favourite places in Europe. I recommend a leisurely afternoon exploring Mala Strana and its beautiful surrounds.

Relatively quiet, lovely buildings, lots of embassies, nice boutique restaurants. I think that I could live here with the castle on one doorstep and the river on the other

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

We used the trams, a 3 day pass cost 1500 (about £10) Czech koruna, but also the majority of areas are in walking distance, which is a lovely way to spend time and find fabulous places by just stumbling across them. Enjoy
