This is a very nice district, a lot of must see like the castel, st. vitus cathedral and other. A lot of shops also and nice little restaurants. And at the end you must take a walk on Charles bridge to the old town center of Prague...simply beautiful.

Especially nice on a winter evening with a little bit of snow - an incredible atmosphere and you will be nearly alone...

I also took a second tour with Discovery Prague exploring the Castle District. While you can certainly and should explore the Castle District and Mala Strana on your own, there are certainly benefits following a guide. My walk covered some of the highlights, our guide pointing out interesting nuggets of information, good spots to admire the view and help us... More

Everything from Kampa Park and up towards the castle is a walk in paradise. A place you just HAVE to visit on the top 5 things to do in Prague.

Walking across Charles bridge the view of the castle above you is very impressive. The sign posting though is very poor and you end up following the crowd whereas it would be better to approach by one of the other routes where there are less people. Beautiful building line the roads as you wind up the hill. Our first close... More

We loved our visit to the Castle District. When you arrive, buy a ticket so that you can visit the Cathedral / History Museum / etc. We were also fortunate to be there to enjoy the castle Christmas market!

Full of sights to see, make sure you leave enough time. Love the cobbled streets quaint little shops, castle, museums. Bring your own water etc.. as it's a very expensive area.

The castle district is full of history, as well as modern cafes, restaurants and gardens. Take a walk around and you won't be disappointed. Trams and metro will take you both sides of the river. Take a walK along the river and you will come to Charles Bridge. Or take a walK up the hill behind Metro A and there... 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.
