We love walking around the Mala Strana area as there is so much to do with lovely bars, cafes and shops everywhere and it is a great place to people watch. It is perfect for walking up the hill to the castle area and you will get some great photo opportunities.

A great experience on the way up... If you can, walk it all the way up to the palace where you will surely get some great pictures of Prague... Enjoy

You coils spend a whole day here just people watching. It has everything very confidently in a very compact area so not much walking needed but steep hills . A must

So gorgeous, and medieval, you'll feel you've travelled back a couple of centuries if you see it in the early morning. Whether you're a culture vulture or a hip trendy traveller, this is the place to be. Also great fun to hike up the mountains to the TV tower. Loved it

Many restaurants and great value shopping. Visit the Palladium, walk down to Wenceslas square. Prague is so special. I am going back.

I spent one afternoon wandering through Mala Strana, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is, as many have noted, difficult to navigate ... even with a map I found it difficult to find my way through the maze of streets, but often the most interesting walks occur when you get lost or make a wrong turn! in general, there are...

This is a great place to walk. Along the river you will see buildings dating back to the 17th century. Charming cobblestone back and side streets with restaurants, cafes and bars will persuade you to sit down and watch Prague go by. Lots to do and see including the KGB museum and the Lennon Wall.

We decided to return for the 5th time, 2002, 04, 06, 10, now 14. Still a lot to be seen, photographed and wandered. Always great to see what changed. Stay in an apartment on Vlasska. If I tell more, I'll be giving up a great place to the masses. lol

Our bed and breakfast was on this side of the river so we spent a lot of time here wandering the streets and going into the mostly junky tourist shops. We ate in this area 5 times out of the 6 nights we were in Prague, so the restaurants are pretty good. It is but a short walk up to... More
