Between the Vltava river and the Prague Castle there is a picturesque quarter founded in the second half of the 13th century, called Malá Strana (Lesser Town). Of course, from this time there is not so many houses anymore but you will admire nice Baroque architecture (e. g. the Wallenstein Palace and its garden), buildings in the Neruda street with remarkable house signs above the doors, silent charming lanes where you will be the only person, but just in the city centre. The edifice dominating not only the Lesser Town Square, but the whole Malá Strana, is the Church of St. Nicholas, the most splendid ecclesiastical building of Baroque Prague .
Not so far from the main square there is another Baroque Church, Church of Our Lady Victorious, famous for the wax effigy of the Prague Jesus Child, a Spanish work of the Renaissance.
You will also have an opportunity to see the „Prague Venice“ and „Čertovka“, a romantic arm of the Vltava river, which detaches the Kampa Island from the Malá Strana. At the end of the pleasant walking tour you will cross the Charles Bridge, the oldest bridge in Prague, built in the 14th century by the Czech king Charles IV. Do not forgot to touch the miraculous statue of John of Nepomuk – it is said that it can help you fulfill your most secret dreams!
