On the western bank of the Vltava river is the Malá Strana, also known as the Lesser Town. It is a remarkably pretty quarter of Prague with quaint winding streets and picturesque colourful houses. Just wandering around its cobbled streets, browsing the shops, is a joy. At night the restaurants come alive and the streets are lit with lanterns providing a glimpse into the traditional side of Prague. Although this is one of the oldest districts in Prague, many of the buildings were destroyed during the great fires of 1541. St. Nicholas Church is one of the finest churches in the Lesser Town, notably because it took more than 100 years to build! The Wallenstein Palace (Waldstein Palace) is another highlight with its magnificent gardens and courtyards. Top Tip: When walking through Mala Strana, it’s worth including a visit to the Lennon Wall. It is an open-air graffiti space and art mural dedicated to the late Beatles front-man John Lennon. Originally started in 1982 as an anti-communist protest, much of the artwork is political with references to world peace and other inspirational quotes. Photo Credits: Polina Podlesnaya on Unsplash
