Prague & the Czech Republic - Mala Strana (Chapter)
This is the Malá Strana chapter from Lonely Planet's Prague & the Czech Republic guidebook.
Malá Strana (the ‘Little Quarter’) is a charming district of Renaissance palaces and gardens, with an idyllic riverside setting. It is home to the beautiful baroque Church of St Nicholas, as well as many excellent restaurants and bars.
- Experience the bustle and throng of Charles Bridge, a crowded half-kilometre of baroque statues, busking musicians, postcard sellers, caricature artists, snapshotting tourists and stunning views. Better still, experience the bridge at its most romantic, at dawn.
- Gaze at the florid frescoes and trompe l’oeil trickery that adorn the soaring vaults and domes of St Nicholas Church
- Remember the repression of communist-era Prague with a visit to the John Lennon Wall, where youths once gathered in a spirit of rebellion.
- restaurants & bars
