Malá Strana ("Little Quarter") is a district in Prague, one of the most historically significant in the city. Back in the Middle Ages, it was predominantly populated by ethnic Germans and, in later years, largely retained Germanic influence, despite prevalence of the Baroque style in architecture. The most prominent landmark of Malá Strana is the Wallenstein Palace. There are also a number of interesting churches, including St. Nicholas's Cathedral. Other local attractions include the Franz Kafka Museum, the Michna Palace, and the Petřín Tower renowned for its resemblance with the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
