Lesser Town

The second oldest district of Prague with the most famous Baroque churches & gardens.

The Lesser Town, also known as the Lesser or Little Quarter, clusters around the foothills of Prague Castle, across the Vltava River from the Old Town.

Part where the famous Czech writers lived (Jan Neruda, Egon Bondy etc.), where fine bars and jazz clubs are located and where the famous Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů stayed. It´s less hectic than the Old Town and New Town areas thus we recommend exploring this part also during evening when you can really feel the enchanting atmosphere... At its heart is the Baroque Lesser Town Square (Malostranské náměstí). Here, and all around in the cobbled side streets there are small shops to browse, churches to explore and traditional Czech pubs and restaurants to discover; including some with fine views over the river.
