We stopped at this small but very nice church after walking across the Charles Bridge. There was a gate across the entrance, but it was easy to see inside and the church wasn't too big to see everything. Nice ornamentation.

This is a stunningly beautiful church, located on the little quarter of Prague. While the façade of the church is not that impressive, once you get inside, everything changes and the interior is beautifully decorated, especially with gold.

This small church is not on the main road. We happened to find it while meandering along the streets Sunday afternoon. You enter through an enclosed garden, very peaceful and calm. Walk to the iron gate and you can look inside to a beautiful little...More

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
