"Malá Strana" Lesser Town -Mala Strana- Tip by June.b

Lesser Town -Mala Strana-, Prague: 102 reviews and 193 photos

The Lesser Town or Little Side or "Small Town" or maybe any other adjective that means less or small --- as opposed to the Old Town is actually the other side of the Charles Bridge.

This part of the town is the one I mistake for the old town square. I thought I've seen 'em all until I discovered the real old town.

Mala Strana or Lesser town is actually not lesser - it has a lot of things going on around - for one it's the way to the Prague Castle by walk. Lots of restaurants, outdoor cafe, souvenir shops, stores, churches, old buildings and other attractions in the area. And it's not lesser in terms of land area cuz trhe Petrin lookout tower is still a part of the lesser town which I thought was far from the area since it's on top of the hills.

During the medieval time, this is the settlement area of ethnic Germans of Prague.
