The architecture of the buildings and narrow and charming alleys are amazing. Restaurants, palaces, the embassies are neat.

I was glad to be there. The settings were kept so well and the people were very nice and kind. My wife and I got very good price on Bohemia Chrystal in one of the shop in that areas. Good food and good bars.

There are things to see here - such as a few of the house signs, but I'm not sure this part of town has the charm other parts of Prague have. Way too many junkie tourist shops. And the crowds are nuts.

all of prague is wonderful. Each of the area's that you visit prove to be perfect. The buildings, history, people; just amazing. Our visit to this part of the town was nice. We did not stay during the evening and were grateful that we choose our hotel, which was on the other side of the Charles Bridge near the castle.

Absolutely beautiful, breathtaking, architecture. Far less people then Old Town and The Square. Take a walk down any street and you will find shopping, restaurants, drinks, building to tour, just go and get a little lost. Take a walk up to the palace district.

Fantastic, felt like I was on a film set and expecting a horse and cart to come the other way ! Found some really interesting buildings by skirting the area around the Lesser quarter, even found a local's coffee shop where local prices apply! (pastries to die for!)
