The ,Mala Strana (lesser quarter) of Prague (although there is NOTHING lesser about it) was wonderful to walk through. Architecture was amazing. Excellent places to shop and just wander around. Would definitely recommend this part of Prague for an overall experience of this truly WORLD CLASS city.

Take a walk to Mala Strana - or go by tram or by metro, but then just walk down these medieval streets and look at the squares, buildings and monuments. Don't forget your camera!

Nice walk down history for families with children might be a bit tiring, some good restaurants and touristy shops on there too,stroller for kids will be good.

We really enjoyed staying in Mala Strana. It was a respite from the hectic Old Town side. We enjoyed sight seeing in Old Town, then coming back to dine and stay in Mala Strana.

I fell in love with this part of Prague. The architecture was unbelievable and the food was amazing. We ate at several places while we were in the area. It was a great place to shop and just wander around. Next time I go, I will be staying in this part of town!

It being our first time in Prague, we stayed in Old Town and spent much of our time seeing that side of Prague. But later in our visit, we spent time on the west side of the Vltava River, in Lesser Town, and we loved it! From the splendid St. Nicholas Church and the Czech Music Museum, to the lovely... More

Love this part of Prague and there is a very good reason for it. I was born and raised here, and can't think of a better place in the world to grow up in. The view of the river and the National Theater from our windows was hard to beat, the parks nearby- Petrin and Kampa were our backyard. Detsky... More

One of the most memorable parts of Prague! I remember walking through on my solo trip in early 2006 and being awed by the architecture and history of this part of Prague. I imagined as I was walking through this part of Prague that I was in Lord of the Rings a time in the past. Super nice!

This is an area that not everyone gets to because they need to walk about a mile or so to get there from the old city center. great shopping and places to eat. A must see if you are in Prague.
