Less popular than the Old Town - but actually more interesting, and much quieter and less congestive. Lots of great restaurants - and there's the castle and the Petrin Tower - worth visiting.

I have to say, the Lesser Quarter is not the biggest part of Prague, but you can spend here at least five days exploring all the small, narrow and cozy streets with old medieval and picturesque buildings where each one has its own interesting story. Not to mention that the place has many other great museums and attractions (besides the... More

We enjoyed strolling around the streets. Prague has a rich history and the architecture is worth the effort of the walk.

Definitely worth taking a look here. Not as crowded and just as much on offer if not more. Another side of Prague worth seeing

Well, after a tram ride from downtown to the Castle Prague, here's a great suggestion afterward: walk down the hill to the wonderful Lesser Quarter Square and spend some leisure time sitting outside with a coffee or a great Czech Pilsner and watch the people and admire the marvelous architecture...then walk back across the Charles Bridge before hopping on a...

This is a walking city! Meander around the cobble stoned streets. Even though there are tons of people walking around, there are still plenty of quiet spots to discover.

Good to place to meander and take in the ambience. Beautiful buildings, all ancient, but well maintained. Stylish architecture all around. Amazing sculptures and paintings on buildings. Very pleasant.

I loved it here, right beside the Charles Bridge with the Old Town just the other side. It has its' own life and feel with fewer crowds than other parts but plenty of good things going on.

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods 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 neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood 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.
