We enjoyed walking and taking pictures, so from Stare Mesto,the old town, we cross the Charles Bridge and have been at Lesser Quarte, Mala Strana, as is called. More quiet than the old part, with beautiful buildings as well, clean, with cafe-restaurants and a nice small park, where had relax.Worth the visit.

We stayed in Lesser Quarter and loved it. It is a perfect location for visiting everything. Not only can you walk to everything, but there are Trams available too. We found many good restaurants and shops to enjoy. We will definitely stay there the next time we visit.

Beautiful area of the city, nice for an evening stroll if the sun is shining. Beware of pickpockets when busy.

The atmosphere around the old streets of the Lesser quarter is much more relaxed and quieter than anywhere else in the city. There doesn't seem to be as many tourist groups marching by as there is in the old town. We had lunch in a few places around here and it was nice just to sit out in the sun... More

Stayed in the lesser quarter and had a great time, so much to see, but be prepared and take comfy shoes you do a lot of walking.

Nice are to walk though, though it feels a bit of a tourist trap. Having had several good meals in and near old town, we elected to not eat whilst there, and went back to other good places to eat. I don't know if the mid-river island is considered part of the lesser quarter, but it is worth going down... More

This historic quarter is close to all the Prague sites and has a great atmosphere. Our apartment in Trziste was fabulous and in walking distance to the castle, Charles bridge, restaurants and trams.
