Mala Strana is a bit less hectic than Stare Mesto and Nove Mesto and fun to explore the hidden streets that lead down to Kampa Park and also has some neighborhood "gem" restaurants and pubs.

We went there on quite a wet day but spent hours walking through the winding streets and alleys. Lots of history and plenty of excellent views but too many cheap souvenir shops. Well worth several hours to discover.

Away from the bustle of the main square, Mala Strana is the best quiet neighborhood with the perfect mix of sights, museums and quaint corner cafes!

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
