Like any major city, Prague’s origins are based on legends. According to the myth, the site of Prague was founded by Libuse, a daughter of an ancient Czech ruler, and the man she chose to be her husband, Premysl.

In 1257, Malá Strana was established by King Otakar II as the primary district of the German people, defended by fortifications.
