Create an itinerary including Lesser Town
Named after its "lesser" position on the left bank of the Vltava, Lesser Town sits on the slopes just below Prague's world-famous castle complex. Linked to the larger and busier neighborhoods on the other side of the river by a medieval bridge, this quarter dates back to the middle of the 13th century. For a good portion of its history, the area housed mostly German artisans and merchants, invited to live and work here by King Ottokar II of Bohemia, the quarter's original founder. Today, the atmospheric quarter serves as home to government offices and foreign embassies. Follow the signposted tourist trail to see the neighborhood's major attractions, including an imposing Baroque church and a 700-year-old beer bar. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lesser Town and many more Prague attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Prague trip planner.
