Would you like to visit the famous Golden Lane with no rush of tourists and with free admission? If so, I invite you to walk to the old Stresovicky on the southern slopes of Stresovice. It is one of the best preserved old villages in Prague at all. Unlike the nearby old Strešovice, which were largely demolished or converted improperly, you can find in Stresovicky truly original atmosphere of the worker´s hamlet including old houses and bumpy pavement (so called: cat's head).
Belfry in Stresovicky
We come to stresovicky through Ve Stresovickach street
There are preserved small picturesque gardens in front of the houses
As in the Mediterranean
Ther is also a place for a small seating area...
... or many quaint articles
We enter the middle of the village through narrow alley Na Kocourkách
We reach the small square
Sitting on the square
Old cobblestones and roses
The houses on their back side are based on rocks
Demolition of an old house allowed to reveal how houses were built right into the rocks, including some rooms carved into the sandstone directly
There is one house already missing there
Behind the belfry begins small district of Art Nouveau apartment buildings
