We were staying in the old town but spent lots of time walking around Malá Strana and its many bars and restaurants. A quaint and pretty part of town

Not as touristy as Old Town Square. Meander your way up to Prague castle through the streets. Lots of fun shops, bakeries, chocolatiers and such.

I think there is nothing like MUST see but when you are gading around, you feel like in the different world. Narrow and little streets, old buildings.. amazing atmosphere

Right side of the river has a lot to offer, the most important sight being castle hill. Pretty charming surrounding streets with plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes guarantee quality time spent on this side of Vltava river.

Cross the Charles Bridge from Old Town toward the Prague Castle and you're there. More shops and restaurants and shops to explore. A block away are several of the highly rated cellar pubs.

Take a stroll over the Charles Bridge and into Mala Strana. Beautiful streets and quaint cafe’s. While your there, have a coffee, visit the baby Jesus and then tackle the massive hill upto the castle!

Mala Strana is easily walkable if a bit hilly. Wear comfortable shoes with tread, and always dress for weather. Bridges that connect Mala Strana to Old Town can be reached by foot.

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
