Artist's Description

Malá Strana (English: Little Quarter, German: Prager Kleinseite) is a district of the city of Prague, Czech Republic, and one of its most historic regions.

In the Middle Ages, it was a dominant center of the ethnic German (and since 16th century also Italian) citizens of Prague. It also housed a large number of noble palaces while the right-bank towns were comparatively more bourgeois and more Bohemian Czech.

The name Malá Strana translated into English literally means “Little Side”, though it is frequently referred to as “Lesser Town”, “Lesser Quarter”, or “Lesser Side”. This name derives from its position on the left (west) bank of the river Vltava, on the slopes just below the Prague Castle, in opposition to the larger towns of Prague on the right bank, to which it is conjoined by the Charles Bridge.

Baroque architecture predominates in Malá Strana, but the history of the district dates back to far before the Baroque era.
