Spend a week at a wonderful small hotel, Hotel Petre. Loved Mala Strana in that there was so much green space and many wonderful gardens. No where near as crowded with tourists as other areas.

All of the Imperial embassies had their palaces here, and the architecture is stunning. Very hilly, perched under the walls of Prague Castle. Beautiful.

Mala Strana is a charming area of Prague to stroll around. Not as many tourists here compared to other parts of the city. Some good little bars and eateries here as well.

A place to get lost in, not too crowded with tourist, with cafeterias and bars with reasonable prices. Good place to go to for a walk and for lunch. I recommend the Fat mouse restaurant, hidden in one small street not far from Ujezd.

This part of Prague is very charming, and not quite as jam packed as the main square in the old town side. Definitely cross the bridge and check out this area.

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

We used the trams, a 3 day pass cost 1500 (about £10) Czech koruna, but also the majority of areas are in walking distance, which is a lovely way to spend time and find fabulous places by just stumbling across them. Enjoy
