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. :)

after spending a morning in the crowded castle, I wandered through the streets of the town below the castle, and found myself in these interconnecting private gardens. There were a few people, but the terraces give everyone privacy. It was a great place to take photos and rest a bit before going back over the river. These gardens are worth... More

The entrance is on Valdstejnska and the exit is near the top of the Old Castle Stairs into a Cafe. You will not be able to ascend if you have mobility issues as it is a steep climb in parts. We were completely on our own in the garden and on a hot day in the busy castle district it... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods 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 neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood 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.
