"Mala Strana is the west..." Prague Favorite Tip by nighthawk

Prague General: 753 reviews and 980 photos


Favorite thing: <center><FONT FACE='TEKTON'SIZE='3'COLOR='#8B008B'><div style='background color=#E6E6FA'>Mala Strana is the west district of Prague. There, in the historical centre, you can find the Prague castle Hradcany.
At one of the squares is the big cathedral and close to the castle is the Golden Street, in Czech that is Zlatá Ulicka.
These houses were built in the 16th century and once gold smiths lived here, that's how they came to name this street.
In the 18th and 19th century squatters moved in and after that artists. Even Franz Kafka lived here a while.
I found it very hard to imagine that people really lived here in the old days....but they have.
