Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

We used the trams, a 3 day pass cost 1500 (about £10) Czech koruna, but also the majority of areas are in walking distance, which is a lovely way to spend time and find fabulous places by just stumbling across them. Enjoy
