In my opinion this is the most beautiful place in Prague. It is worth there to visit not only on the most popular monuments but as well to go into many small streets. You can also find there some local and not expensive pubs or restaurant.

This is a lovely place to have a walk and gaze at the architecture, especially when the crowds of tourists dissipate a little around meal time.

We stayed in the Mala Strana area. It was very quaint and not as crowded and touristy as the Old Town area. It definitely had more of a local feel to it. Highly recommend wandering around.

Makes Strana is located at the other side of the river were the old square is located. Just crossing the Carlos bridge you enter into Mala Strana were the Castle, the baby Jesus of Prague and others are located. Take into consideration that walking to the Castle requires good health since it is a steep hill (should you choose that... More

I walked in this area almost every day during my stay in Prague. Once I walked past the touristy shop areas, this could be very atmospheric. I liked to wonder off the back alleys especially closer to dusk. I could see the local lives unfold during the early evening hours. This area was used in several scenes of the movie... More

The old town is fantastic shops and restaurants to suit everyone. The old square is the place to sit and watch the world go by and surprisingly the bars not unreasonable on drinks prices. The down side is the endless touts trying to hire and sell Segway tours I can only compare it to the timeshare touts in Tenerife. They... 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.
