Photographer's Note

The roofs of buildings in Prague's Lesser Quarter as seen from Prague Castle.

The Lesser Quarter (also referred to as the Lesser Town, and in Czech Malá Strana ("the Little Side")) is a district in the historical centre of Prague, below Prague Castle, on the left bank of the River Vltava. It is one of the oldest parts of Prague, and perhaps also the most picturesque. It is connected to the other historical "towns" (the Old Town, the New Town, and the Jewish District) on the other side of the river by Charles Bridge. Formerly, these "towns" were independent municipalities. Now they all form the borough of Prague 1 - the historical centre of Prague (only the New Town straddles the boroughs of Prague 1 and 2).
