“Great place to walk around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We didn't stay here long. We walked through it from the Castle on our way to Charles Bridge. It's a cute area though overlooking the River and Old Town. I would explore this area more on a repeat visit to Prague.

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

A quaint and easy to get around neighbourhood of Prague. Lots of nice little shops and historic sights. Thoroughly enjoyed walking around Lesser Town.

“Charming & quiet alternative to Prague's Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Julia in the Lesser Quarter for a three-day visit in the fall of 2012. Prague's public transportation provides cheap and efficient transport to more famous tourist sites across the river in the Old Town and New Town sections of the city. There's plenty to see and do in the Lesser Quarter, including baroque churches, parks, a funicular to a 1/5 size replica of the Eiffel Tower, riverfront strolls and pleasant neighborhood dining. If you are visiting Prague, you should definitely tour (or stay) in the Lesser Quarter as part of your trip.

“Lesser town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

At the end of the Chales Bridge is the lesser town.
Full of shops and restaurants, including one that does a proper cup of english tea!!
The castle is in the lesser town up a steep hill.
St Nicholas church is also well worth a visit for a small entrance fee.

“Just walk around...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you're in Prague you don't have to make an effort to find something interesting or historical to see, you really have to just walk around and you will find an infinity of small paths and wonderful buildings.
