Walk in Prague – from Malá Strana to Nerudová Street

Walking in the narrow streets of Prague is the best way to get the feeling of the city. This is the Castle side of the city known as “Malá Strana” which means Lesser Town of Prague.

Malá Strana is one of the most historic neighborhoods’ in Prague. Our walk started from Hellichova tram stop. In Malá Strana there are many famous places like John Lennon Wall or Czech Music Museum in which you can see various musical instruments, listen to concerts or take a look at the vinyl collection.

In 1989 an incident left a mark in history. Hundreds of people from East Germany. requested asylum from West Germany Embassy located on Vlašská street. Negotiations took a long time on 30th of September, West Germany accepted the asylum.

This building was Palais Lobkowitz. Today it’s home to German Embassy.

St. Nicholas Church is a Baroque church which was built between 1704-1755. My tip is to climb to the tower and take a look at the breathtaking view of the Charles Bridge.

Wallenstein Palace is another Baroque classics in Prague. Today it’s home to Czech Senate. The garden is open to visitors, and Senate is accessible only on the “Open Day”.

While I was heading to Nerudová street, I saw the locals relaxing after work with a pint 🙂 which is very common in Czech Republic. Local pubs and breweries are the meeting points. Nerudová Street will take us to Prague Castle. Embassies are mainly clustered in this area. There are many colorful buildings, many good spots to take pictures.

This street is named after Jan Neruda who was a Czech writer born in 1834 in Malá Strana. Neruda surname may recall us “Pablo Neruda”. Pablo Neruda used this surname because of his admiration to Jan Neruda’s art.

U Dvou Slunců – At the Two Suns, Jan Neruda moved to this house at the age of four. Inside the house there is the information board and the pictures of the famous writer. His well known book is Tales of the little Quarter published in 1878. There’re stories about the life of Malá Strana habitants.
