Walking across Charles bridge the view of the castle above you is very impressive. The sign posting though is very poor and you end up following the crowd whereas it would be better to approach by one of the other routes where there are less people. Beautiful building line the roads as you wind up the hill. Our first close... More

We loved our visit to the Castle District. When you arrive, buy a ticket so that you can visit the Cathedral / History Museum / etc. We were also fortunate to be there to enjoy the castle Christmas market!

Full of sights to see, make sure you leave enough time. Love the cobbled streets quaint little shops, castle, museums. Bring your own water etc.. as it's a very expensive area.

The castle district is full of history, as well as modern cafes, restaurants and gardens. Take a walk around and you won't be disappointed. Trams and metro will take you both sides of the river. Take a walK along the river and you will come to Charles Bridge. Or take a walK up the hill behind Metro A and there... More

The castle district is a lovely place to visit and wander around and is quieter than the actual castle itself with many lovely buildings and little shops.

Fascinating place to visit and not to be missed. It's a long walk up quit a steep hill with a fair number of steps. I managed with a previously broken ankle and knee and I'm 62 but I could only do it once. A taxi may have been better but it was well worth the effort. Not only fascinating architecture... More

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.
