A Historic Experience

The Lesser Town of Prague was a settlement long before the Slavs came to the area. With the advantage of the Vltava River, an exuberant trade community thrived in this district and the strategic location on the hillside kept the settlement from flooding. By the 800’s the Slavic tribes began to gather here and Christianity was introduced together with monarchy. The construction of the Prague Castle followed. Though the formation of the Little Quarter predates the Old Town, it would not be considered a town until the 13th century.

“Little Side” with Huge Royal Past

The name Malá Strana literally translated to “Little Side” distinguishing this part of town from the larger district on the right side of the Vltava River. The 16th century saw a destructive fire in this neighbourhood and a large-scale destruction that prompted influential architects to come here and start reconstructing the area. That’s why Baroque architecture predominates today in the Little Quarter.

Join your knowledgeable local guide for a virtual stroll through the “Royal Way,” the scenic route of medieval kings leading from the Prague Castle through the most picturesque parts of the Lesser Town. Hear stories of former residents and important characters from Czech history who inhabited this neighbourhood and made it famous throughout the world.

Fantastic Walking Tour of Beautiful Neighborhood! Scott K.

This tour of Little Prague or "Lesser Town" is great! The neighborhood is beautiful with stupendous architecture and so much character. Winding cobblestone streets are lined with ornate buildings decorated with elaborate symbols. Mark was a fun and knowledgeable guide. This was my second Amazon Explore of Prague and I hope someday to visit this beautiful city.

Beautiful city, great overview of architecture Tom CMH

Mark was a very gracious host and guide. His showing of close up images to supplement with additional detail of building markers was very helpful. This is a great tour to get your feet wet with Amazon Explore.

The architecture and symbolism in Old Town Prague is fascinating and fun! Sherri

We thoroughly enjoyed a virtual walking tour of the maze of cobblestoned streets in historic Prague with Mark as our delightful host. Mark was knowledgeable and his narration was informative, fascinating, and fun! We learned several interesting tidbits about the symbolism prevalent in Old Town Prague and enjoyed seeing Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. We look forward to future tours, both virtual and (hopefully!) in-person.

Absolutely fabulous experience Autumn Sky

The host was very knowledgeable and definitely treated me as if I was personally there with her on the tour and not just visiting as a virtual tourist. I felt her love of Prague throughout the tour, and I hope to visit there myself one day. This was an amazing experience - thank you!!
