Maltézské náměstí between Mostecká and Kampa
In this labyrinth of alleys near Kampa park, many embassies and ministries have taken up residence in beautiful old palaces.
This district of palaces is just brimming with history. Typically for Prague, many famous personalities stayed here on their visits - Mozart, Beethoven and many others visited and passed through the House of the Golden Unicorn, which is now a hotel.
Further down is a beautiful church definitely worthy of your attention: The Church of the Virigin Mary under the Chain. Originally a Romanesque chapel built between 1169-82, its present appearance is the result of a 1640-60 baroque renovation. This oldest church in the Lesser Quarter was given to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem by the Bohemian king Vladislav II to guard and defend Judith Bridge (later renamed Charles Bridge).
At present, it is the Embassy of the Sovereign Order of Malta, which carries on this age-old tradition. Heading out towards Kampa park, you will come upon the "Lennon Wall" on Velkopřevorské náměstí, dedicated to the memory of the former Beatle. Before the Velvet Revolution, dissenting young Czechs covered this wall with graffiti and drawings aimed at the oppressive communist regime. The wall continues to evolve, and the original portrait of John Lennon has long been covered over.
