Lively area that has a slight less busy feel than the Old Town side of the Charles Bridge. There are some good restaurants and shops to walk through. Just keep walking and you'll get to see another unique area of Prague.

Mala Strana is a lovely place in Prague. It has lots of little streets to wander around in and plenty of cafés and restaurants. It is extremely busy but worth a look as it is very picturesque.

Clustered around the foothills of Prague Castle Malá Strana is less bustling than the Old Town once you get away from Charles Bridge & a little gem of an area. Picturesque with narrow side streets to explore, beautiful buildings, Baroque churches and many a place to refresh yourself. Just a lovely place to wander.

Total must see when visiting Prague. You can take a stroll and dive in discovering the hidden places and history. There is John Lennon wall , the street art wall inspired by his work or Beatles museum along the all historic buildings. Highly recommended

Nice place to go for a walk and meet locals and tourists. You can find a place to chill like a park or coffee place but might as well just walk around and discover pretty/interesting buildings.

I don't have much to say. It should be definitely on your places-to-visit-list if you are in Prague.

Mala Strana is my favorite place in Prague. I am overjoyed to come back for a visit and sad to leave Mala Strana behind. The narrow cobblestone streets, the fancy restaurants by the river with amazing views, the simple and cosy cafes in every nook and cranny. The small ice-cream shops. A gorgeous tiny flower shop. The mosaic sidewalks that... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
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 shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
