Absolutely stunning gardens to visit. There were a lot of tours going around but we just visited by chance. Lovely place to spend a quiet hour or so.

Nice and pleasant gardens walled off from the city outside. Nice for a wander and a rest and some interesting sculptures. Plus there's a peacock wandering around.

This is a peaceful garden tucked into the middle of the Little Quarter in Prague. It is free and shows a glimpse of how the aristocracy relaxed in nature.

We visited this garden almost incidentally as part of a private tour. The accompanying palace is now a government building that you can't get into, but you can walk through the courtyard into the garden and get a really good sense of what a magnificent palace it was. The best part it is that it serves as a gateway to... More

We had a short walk in the lesser town and entered the gardens. There is no fee to enter. The original statues were taken during the war and are replaced with the new ones. There were peacocks walking around and the gardens are so peaceful. The tour guide told us that original owner of the palace, Count Wallenstein became so... More

We went to Wallenstein Palace Gardens on liberation day so was also able to see the Senate. The gardens were beautiful and very peaceful.

Wallenstein Palace Gardens are lovely to visit any time of the year. Entrance is for free. Not far from Prague castle. Easy excess.

Prague is full of beautiful gardens just hidden in the city center. This is one of them. You can spent 10min or 3 hours here, it's up to you. Lovely

1 May is labour day as well as lovers day (valentine's day) for Czech people. Lovers are supposed to celebrate today kissing under blossom trees at Petřín hill. Well for obvious reasons I chose to go to Wallenstein Palace Gardens to have a stroll instead. Its all worth it. I am all lucky that the weekend in Prague was sunny... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
