Mala Strana is the perfect wandering spot for the hungry. Loads and loads of places to eat that are better than Old Town.

Most of the tourists are visiting the bridges and the clock, but the real hidden gem is Mala strana. Spend a few hours visiting this quarter and you will feel the real spirit of Prague. No kidding!

What an amazing place! During our week trip to Prague we've been there at least three times. It's like you ended up in the Middle Ages! Brick small streets, lights, a lot of small restaurants and shops, and not many tourists! :) Recommend to walk there in the evening!

Malá Strana (Lesser Town) is the beautiful quarter between Old Town and Prague Castle. It's a great place to wander the streets and discover all that this charming area has to offer. You can visit St. Nicholas Cathedral. The church tower offers magnificent views of the city. I was lucky to be there at sunset and witness day turning into... More

Just a beautiful place full of ancient buildings that modern day has integrated life around. Walk the tight streets, walk up the hill toward the castle, pause and reflect on the beauty and the history of the place. Once you have made your way up, turn back and simply admire the view!

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood 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.
