Starting at Charles Bridge, you will immediately notice the beauty of this neighborhood.
We continue along the main street to the Malostranská square, dominated by the great church of St. Nicholas, in which there is a section of Prague Museum. Adult admission 100 CZK, open from 9 am to 4-5 pm depending on the time of year.
Immediately we continue the walk to the main entrance of PRAGUE CASTLE, the biggest attraction of this neighborhood, so we dedicate a specific post to it.
Getting out of the Castle by the east entrance, we continue south back heading to the bridge. Along the way we find at 24 U Luzikého Semináře the narrowest street in Prague (77 cm wide), the narrowest in the world some say. Actually it is not a street, but a staircase leading to a restaurant overlooking the river, still is curious to see.
Nearby, on Cihelná street, very close to the river, is the Kafka Museum, the favorite son of the city. Admission 260 CZK, open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. At the entrance there is a famous and controversial animated bronze statue of David Cerny in which two sculptures urinate on a map of the Czech Republic.
On the south side of Charles Bridge, on the banks of the river, is the Kampa Museum of Modern Art. Open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. Admission 330 CZK, although you can visit individual sections paying each one you want. I have not entered the museum, but many of its works are exhibited outdoors around the park where it is located, and the truth is that, not being a modern art lover, I’ve liked what I’ve seen. The most famous are sculptures alien-like Crawling Babies by the same author that in Kafka Museum, and I personally love the row of yellow penguins.
If you have time, continuing south, the streets are as nice as those of Stare Mesto and Josefov.
