Our neighbourhood tips
We love our neighbourhood and the fact that the Hunger Wall Residence is still in the city center but in very quiet part, so you are not surrounded by big crowds of tourists. You can find lots of restaurants and cafés around. In the morning you can watch the sunrise from Petřín Hill or see the Charles Bridge without people. We would like to show you where to go and what to see.
But first coffee
You have some options to get amazing cup of coffee. Our favorites are just few steps from the residence. First is Kofárna café just around the corner. They serve great coffee and something small to eat.
Our next tip is small bistro and café The Bowls. This café is also great place for breakfast. On their menu you can find poke or smoothie bowls as well some salads for lunch. We love their concept and the interior is beautiful.
Petřín Hill is between Malá Strana and Strahov. We recommend to take a walk through Petřín Gardens and head to Strahov Monastery od straight to the Prague Castle. This place is particularly nice during spring months. Another nice option is to take funicular up to the hill, visit Lookout Tower and head back down on foot.
The Hunger Wall, which our residence is named after, was part of the historic fortifications of Prague Castle and Lesser Quarter. It was built between 1360 and 1362 by order of Charles IV. It was called Hunger because of the famine that broke out in 1361. But it drove hunger away. Working on its construction provided a livelihood for the city’spoor. You can admire part of the stone wall directly in the courtyard.
Watch the sunrise
If you are able to wake up early, we recommend you to go out and see the sunrise over the Charles Bridge. It is really beautiful to walk arounf the Old Town early in the morning.
