The area
Neighbourhood: Malá 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.

The only remaining wooden water mill in Prague is this amazing water wheel along the Devil's Canyon,its a reminder of how the people of the city harnessed the power of water to power the mills that once proliferated the Vltava River and tributaries, the water wheel looks superb especially when viewed at night and from Charles Bridge, well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Prague.

Walking around the beautiful Mala Strana ,to be precise over Charles Bridge Lesser Town side of the bridge I looked out and over to the Water Mill along what's known locally as Devil's Channel.
This water mill is a reminder of how water was used for power to keep the mills in operation ,it's a beautiful feature of the area ,very photogenic and if you're in the area it's most definitely well worth checking out.

Place was easy to find. Nothing too special about the water mill. When we got there the mill wasn't working but we had a good view of it and we saw the gargoyle. We sat at the restaurant opposite to it had a good view and amazingly good food

Heading to The John Lennon Pub my twin brother Stephen and I crossed Lovers Bridge which offers great views of the Water Mill ,it's quite a fun and fascinating structure ,although not a working water mill ,it does offer great photo opportunities not just of the water mill but of the river,architecture and the cute looking trog sitting by the water mill ,it's well worth checking out if you're near Kampa Island .

A mill that I saw during a boat trip on Devil's channel. Nothing really impressive. It can also be seen from Charles Bridge. I don't consider it an unmissable objective.

This is near the Lennon Wall and is worth visiting. Doesn't take up much time and you can see a goblin at the edge of the water mill. Good photo stop.

The wheel is old , the Lenon Wall ( just steps away ) is new in comparison.
That is Prague. Something new, something old, interesting photo op at every step.
I remember the Wheel long before the Lenon Wall came about.
The wheel never stopped turning , when I was a kid growing up nearby.
It was part of the landscape, no-one was taking pictures back then.

I have been back many times and have yet to see it turn. Maybe next time.
The restaurant overlooking the water and the Wheel is cute , in the summer especially.
It's been years since we ate there, so I can't really comment. They have very pretty courtyard to photograph ...

We spotted this water mill as we walked to the John Lennon Wall over Lovers Bridge.
The wheel, which is turned by the flow of a man-made offshoot of the Vltava river named Certovka (Devil's Stream) is guarded by a Vodník or Water Sprite, which sits just past the wheel keeping watch.
This is a wonderful little gem as you explore Kampa Island and the wider Lesser Town.

This is a large beautiful old wooden wheel which turns in the water. It has a strange looking water sprite statue on the edge of the wooden platform. Even though the wheel is quite big it can be easily missed depending on where you are walking. Quite easy to find and see if you are walking by the John Lennon wall and pub. Looks quite ordinary during the day and there isn't really anything else to look at where it is situated but at night if you are on the bridge looking at it it is beautifully lit up and casts the most beautiful shadows on the wall of the building next to it.
