Top ways to experience Hradčany
The area
Neighborhood: Malá 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.

Beautiful panorama

One of the best spots to take a photo of Hradcany from is a little square to the right of the Charles Bridge on the Old Town side. Especially in October 2020 with hardly any tourists in town.

Hradcany district is an obvious place for tourists to visit as it holds so many attractions of the most significance.

The most obvious is the Castle and the St.Vitus Cathedral. The St. George Basilica and the Strahov Library . The many Palaces and the beautiful gardens surrounding them. The Golden Lane.

The area around the Castle is crowded and there are security lines for different attractions. I love the easily accessible Loreta Church without the crowds and the surrounding area, closer to Pohorelec. And the Rocking Horse toy store selling hand made Czech toys, nearby.

This year my husband and I stayed for the first time in the Hradcany district Hotel Savoy. During the first part of our trip. That afforded us the opportunity to hang around the Hradcany area at all hours and found it most enjoyable at night when most of the tourists crowds were gone.

We had discovered some new restaurants, that we enjoyed for lunch and dinner here. The views at night are spectacular.

My husband and I once again visited the Lobkowitz Palace, midday concert there, as well as short break on their terrace. Changing of the Guard ceremony on another day. Walk down the Novy Svet and stop at restaurant U Raka was an afternoon well spent. The views from the Bellavista restaurant are one of the best.

I love this part of Prague and hope you will too ....

Main attraction of Prague

Castle District 's one of the most beautiful areas of Prague.
This district has numerous marvellous buildings, palaces and cathedrals.

It is a pleasure to walk from the Old town and reach this district taking the Charles Bridge.
I visited Prague during the summer and I have fantastic memories. Prague is simply beautiful.
