Why locals love it

This place is located in Hradčany district, close to Prague Castle, yet still hidden out of tourist routes. Even locals barely know about existence of this tiny quarter with cute small houses. It is still possible to see cannonballs from Prussian occupation in house walls. Look up!

Why you should visit it

You will be almost alone there and it is a great chance to take absolutely amazing pictures. You can also admire or even touch really high Prague fortification from 18th century and see the only preserved log house in Prague (House at the Crayfish).

Special tip

In a neighbourhood of this picturesque quarter is situated residence of our president. He is not living at the Prague Castle as people usually think.

Looks Great and Beautiful... but where exactly does that old politician live (so that I'll know to avoid it)?

Is it possible to share exact walking route for this cute area ? I am visiting next October and will surely try to manage this place.

Wonderful! Difficult to find which is great. The area was empty, quiet and great for photos. Thanks for the recommendation!
