Very beautiful piece of architecture in here. Loved it. For me, this was best part of Prague. Very vibrant with great gothic touch

We were at a hotel on this side of the river 3 days and only ventured to the other side twice. Only 5 minutes from Charles Bridge there are quiet streets and cozy restaurants with good Czech food.

If you go over charles bridge towards the castle go to the left at the end and walk along the streets where you we see some lovely buildings and it gets you away from the busyness of Prague

Though we saw only a fraction of the area, we thoroughly enjoyed the shops, embassies, and general architecture. A bite of pastry just over the bridge and a visit to Marionety Truhlar's puppet shop was fun and relaxing.

Nice area of Prague to relax away from the crowds. The place to stay if you want to get some sleep at night

An interesting part of Prague between the Old City and Wenceslas Square. The square is a divided city street leading to the national museum with a statue of the saint at the south end. Wander around. Note the Franciscan garden, a quiet refuge from the businesses.

We hardly scratched the surface if this area and yet were continually surprised by the delights and sights of this area. It's a case of turning every corner and saying "Oh wow look at that"

Lots of nice eateries and shops along the way to the Charles Bridge. If you are a Beatle fan, the Lennon wall is great.

The last mohican, the last part of Prague still keeping the genius loci… at least in the less busy parts.
