Fantastic history and architecture. The views overlooking the city are stunning mixed with the extraordinary buildings within the Castle Quarter and district. The stained glass windows in St Vitus Cathedral are beautiful. The sunlight illuminates the walls and the Gargoyles are awesome. I was surprised to have to pay to access Golden Lane and didn't find out until we reached... More

Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world and a must see for any visitor to Prague. However, there is an endless set of meandering medieval cobblestone streets with charming shops and ample places to try Czech food and experience their fine hospitality. Take your time and bring your walking shoes. This is much a part of the... More

We went there with some friends on a sunny Friday afternoon to visit the whole area, admire the scenery and a have a tour inside the sigh-seeings. I would recommend to go there a bit early in order to have a lot of time to see everything.

The Castle District and Old town is truly a magical place. Every direction you look there is something so beautiful to see, so much history. It is like walking into a fairy story picture book. Charles Bridge and the views from there are breathtaking, 360 degrees round. Impossible not to be impressed with this area of Prague.

If in Prague this area is a must lots of "ye olde" architecture, cobbled streets to walk on, coffee shops and restaurants. You could also visit the Castle and church.

It was a joy to walk up and down these quaint streets leading up to the castle complex. Views from the top are stunning.

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.
