LITTLE QUARTER, PRAGUE

Walking across the Legií Bridge (Most Legií) we had a wander around the Little Quarter (Mala Strana).

I love how a section of the Vltava has been separated for the row boats and pedalos that are for hire.

This area covers the slopes near Prague Castle, so be prepared for some steep climbs. Hardly anything has been built here since the 18th century, so there is an impressive collection of old houses.

Nerudova Street is a lovely place to walk up to the castle. Before house numbers were introduced in 1770 each house was identified by a sign.  Many of the houses still have the signs and it is interesting to wander along trying to spot them all. There are also some great Baroque buildings and shops.

The Little Quarter Square is absolutely charming, which reasonably  priced restaurants and bars around the outside as well some lovely steps to sit on (hopefully in the sunshine), watch people go by and admire the statue.

There is a lot of greenery in the Little Quarter, including a lovely park where you can admire the sculptures and ride the Funicular Railway up to the ‘little Eiffel tower’

This is a gorgeous area of Prague, that we spent half a day exploring, but we easily could have spent much longer.
