This beautiful garden is open to the public with a fee, but its access is free to the guests of the hotel Aria. You can enter with your room key if you are hotel guests. It is nice to be able to do that in the hours before it opens and closes to the public. We stayed in the hotel... More

A small but beautiful getaway from the city. It's a bit hidden, but it's worth looking up. Great view of the city also.

Loved wandering up and down these gardens just after the visit to the castle. Cheap to enter. Make sure you walk to the left and sample all the gardens and features rather than just go down the stairs to the bottom. Sit back and relax and look out over those Prague rooftops amid the foliage. Very relaxing even when you... More

We stayed at Aria Hotel and had the privilege and pleasure of visiting this beautiful and enchanting garden almost daily after breakfast. In a nutshell, when I retire, I want to come to Prague and live here as a gardener! :-) That said, it's certainly one of the must-see attractions of Prague! Kudos to each and every gardener/ personnel who... More

We had the pleasure of staying next door to this beautiful garden and had private access to it each evening. The view from the very top is divine day or night. There is even an aviary in this garden. The hedges are immaculate and there are only a few people in this garden at any given time. There are benches... More

Beautiful garden with an astonishing view of the city, accessed from a small entrance, so it's not so visited as other places around. There were a few couples taking wedding photos, so we had to wait a while to access the upper levels. Perhaps with one hour one could see it all and make beautiful pictures. Really romantic!

We went on a Sunday and 3 or 4 wedding couples were celebrating and having photo shoots all over the garden so we didn't have access to the low levels. That didn't matter much because it's the upper parts that is the most beautiful part of the garden with great scenery and amazing layout. Not too many tourists when we... More

Beautiful, cascade garden which is not too small. On the top of it there is a nice viewpoint to Prague.

This garden was beautiful, but if you have trouble with steps, you may not want to go. Once you've climbed to the top, there's an amazing view of the city. I don't have a fear of heights, but I was a little shaky up there!
