The other side of Prague is also beautiful. You find a lot of souvenir shops, bars, restaurants. There are also a lot of points of intrest. On this side there are for example the Kafka museum, the St. Nicholas Church (chrám svatého Mikuláše) and the narrowst street.

Mala Strana (Lesser Town) is below Prazsky Hrad (Prague Castle) and borders Vltava River. Explore palaces and gardens. Charles Bridge links Lesser Town and Old Town.

Mala Strana is my favorite corner of the world. It is the most charming and romantic part of Prague. I feel at home here, the moment I arrive ! Mala Strana is where I was born. I grew up here, in a house on the riverbank, near the Legii Bridge , the small islands on the river, with the National Theater right across. Near the Petrin and Kampa park, the beautiful churches big and small, near the noble Palaces surrounded by the beautiful Baroque gardens. The small Squares , the busy Malostranske, and the almost serene Maltezske. With charming cafes on every corner, the beautifully renovated restaurants tucked away in the centuries old buildings. The old pubs that the locals favor, and the elegant 5 stars restaurants with great views. The old monasteries converted into classy hotels, that we now favor. The ride on the funicular we loved as children, to the Nebozizek stop, or all the way up, to climb to the top of Rozhledna and visit Bludiste. The winding narrow streets with the cobblestone designs - wine glass in front of a bar, a row of crosses on the sidewalk in front of a church. The mosaic sidewalks add such richness and are a big part of Mala Strana charm. The centuries old signs on the houses in Nerudova street are part of the history. As much as a tiny flower shop on the corner that's been there forever, or the small gingerbread store. I love to come back to the well kept parks, Kampa, Vojanovy Sady, that have not changed at all. The peacocks strutting their stuff, the swans on the river. The same wooden benches with hearts and initials carved into them late at night. Certovka stream with the ancient rickety wheel, next to the Lennon Wall. The beautiful overgrown horse - chestnut trees leaning toward the river on Shooters Island. The fast moving, screeching red trams that always have the right of way .... The Legii bridge to watch fireworks from on New Years Day... Mala Strana is all that and more. Mala Strana is the place I love, the place filled with wonderful memories, the place I always love to return to. I am overjoyed every time I come back and sad to leave it all behind . Till next time ....…

This interesting area is located across the river from the main part of the city and near to Prague Castle. Access can easily be obtained by walking across Charles Bridge. There are lots to see by just wandering around the old cobbled streets including impressive buildings, bars, and cafes. Well worth visiting.…
