It is a very nice area to go walking and find restaurants that are not as crowded. The area is highlighted by the castle district at the top of the hill.

There are quite a lot of palaces and churches in this area which are impressive to look a but there are also some fabulous gardens where you can sit in relative peace and quiet. Take a padlock with you to attach to the Lock Bridge if you want to declare your everlasting love for someone and a felt tip pen... More

We loved this area, loads of narrow streets and authentic. Also not super busy which as relaxing. Also great prices for drinks and food! Watch out for the narrow staircase with traffic lights, it takes you to a bar/restaurant that overlooks the river. Fantastic. Our favourite place! X

Not as exciting as Old Town and found more shops and tourist venues. Once was enough to visit. Homes on the hill are interesting and very large compared to the old section.

Located on the left bank of the river Vltava. This is very romantic, beautiful part of the city. Number of old, historical houses, palaces, churches, cozy coffee shops and restaurants. And famous Nerudova street - if you keep walking up to the hill you will reach majestic Prague Castle and Cathedral. Amazing view of the city from here! This is... More

Prague is filled with beautiful buildings, the Lesser town being no exception. In my opinion, if you weren't planning on visiting here when coming to Prague, what were you planning on doing? It's over the Charles bridge and below the Castle, it's very difficult to miss! There is also a spectacular tram system and a metro stop. Look out for... More
