one of my favourites

if you want to hide and rest, to read a book or just discover a nice hidden spot with a little bit of nature in the city centre, you should definitely visit this place.

Missed the entrance in the crowd heading down hill from the palace, so climbed back up the hill. The entrance is "disguised" as a small coffee shop! After paying a token entry fee, we emerged to a serene and quite steep, Italianate terraced garden with great city views. There were a few interesting displays explaining the ongoing restoration process. We... More

I took me 5 years living in Prague before I found this spot. It became my favorite place in whole of Prague. Worth the small entrance fee

Stumbled across this beautiful series of terraced gardens leading up to the castle rampart walk giving such great views across Prague. 80 crowns well worth it. I'd suggest turning left at the first terrace to a ascend more gently through a series of Italianate terraces.

The garden plants were just starting to bloom in late May. The grape vines had small grapes and the roses were magnificent. It was worth climbing all the stairs for the views and beautiful flowers.

This garden is just one belonging to the Palace gardens, situated on the slopes under the Prague Castle towards Mala Strana (Lesser Town). On the site of former vineyards and orchards, this beautiful Baroque garden now features a pavilion and "over 3,500 flowers, 8,500 trees and 2,200 roses"! An absolutely romantic place!

After a visit to the castle, we wandered through these gardens. Do them leisurely, stopping to sip some water or just gaze at the flowers. This is not for anyone who can't do steps because the garden is on the edge of a hill and is fairly steep. At the bottom, you exit into the midst of the lovely Mala... More

The garden is a part of a series of baroque terrace gardens that are all accessible for the single ticket. Best time to visit is in half of may, when the flowers come to life after winter. If you visit sooner, you can get view of some trees, grass, statues and bushes.

The weather was a little bit rainy, but sometimes we could enjoy the sunlights. The garden was really beautiful even if the sun did not sine. I think it is worth walking through. :)

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
