Castle District

Very enjoyable walk in surrounding streets. Many observation points. Funnicular is a must to observe city and Castle park.

Churches and monasteries, palaces and historic buildings, museums and galleries as well as parks and gardens. I particularly enjoyed the Loreto and the Strahov Monastery.

The castle district is a lovely place to visit and wander around and is quieter than the actual castle itself with many lovely buildings and little shops.

Fascinating place to visit and not to be missed. It's a long walk up quit a steep hill with a fair number of steps. I managed with a previously broken ankle and knee and I'm 62 but I could only do it once. A taxi may have been better but it was well worth the effort. Not only fascinating architecture... More

Summary first: What we've seen was nice, but the fact is that there are basic issues with the usability. The tickets do not mention opening and closing times (even though they close quite early, 4pm on a Sunday!), they neither mention that the cathedral (a main sight!) can only to be entered 20 minutes before closing and 3 out of...

Went through it on the castle tour and came back the next day to roam the streets, see St. Nicholas, the Kafka Museum, have lunch at a local eatery and cross the Charles Bridge in daylight. A bit hilly, but manageable. There are trams and busses!

Pictures of the Castle District from the river are some of my most prized photographs. Does not matter if the sky if true blue or gray, the setting is what makes the picture. Night time photos are a must. When actually at the Castle, there are a few places where the overlook of the city is amazing. Make sure your... More

To explore the area, you must walk up a long set of stone stairs located near the Malostranksa metro stop. Turn around throughout the ascent to catch sweeping views of Praha. Once you reach the top, there are only so many things you can do free of charge. You can explore the grounds around the perimeter of the palace which... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

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.
