Let´s go together to the Lesser Town Square

Now we would like to tell you in detail what the whole square looks like and why it is so much sought after and popular with tourists. The square is full of picturesque and mainly cosy restaurants where you can taste traditional Czech food. On the circuit of the square there are also a few small shops with souvenirs and refreshments. The Lesser Town Square is comprised of two main parts. The upper one is located in the west part and the lower part in the east side. The two little squares are separated from each other by a monumental Baroque St. Nicholas church. The imaginary division is further formed by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University, formerly known as the Jesuit Prefession House.

The upper part of the square The Lesser Town Square and the Holy Trinity Column
Let´s move to the north part of the square where the famous Nerudova Street stretches. It will easily lead you as far as to the premises of the Prague Castle. These words certainly reminded you of the famous Czech writer Jan Neruda and his Lesser Town Short Stories. The book name is really not random because right in this place the author lived and found the topics for his works. From this part of the square the Zámecká street will take you to the Castle Stairs and then follow the streets Sněmovní a Tomášská. If we move to the east side two narrow passages with the tram rails will take us to the Letenská street.

Where did the royal route pass?
If we enter the Lesser Town Square after the fashion of the coronation parade from the Charles Bridge and  Mostecká Street we will be from both sides surrounded by the pleasant restaurants and cafés. The square is lined by the significant and unique historical palaces and monuments. We need to mention the Kaisertstein Palace – the house Nr. 37 on the east side of the square. You would also find the former Lesser Town Townhall in the same block.

The Lesser Town Square The significant buildings
Now is the time to introduce the houses in the upper part of the square to you. The two blocks of palaces consist of the Smiřický Palace, the Sternberg Palace and the Helikovský House which is located in the lower part of the square. The above-mentioned objects are part of the extensive complex of the Chamber of Deputies the Parliament of the Czech Republic. There are educational institutions in the square, too. In the upper part we can beside the Profession House and St. Nicholas Church also find the building of the Musical Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts which is to be found in the Lichtenstein and Hatrigovský Palaces in the western part of the Lesser Town Square. The plague column of the Holy Trinity with the statues of Virgin Mayry and Czech saints is the main point of the square. The monument commemorates the end of the plague epidemic of 1713.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (unknown)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
