Absolutely stunning - restored, hidden, terraced garden in the heart of the city. Take the time to linger on each level and absorb the thoughtful design elements that reveal themselves. Catch the view of greater Prague from the highest level. The fresco is goregous.

Hidden right in the heart of Mala Strana, many people from Prague don't even know about Vrtbovska. This is probably a good thing though, because it's able to maintain a very peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. The garden is absolutely beautiful, and I love the aviary off to the side. The view of Prague from the top is definitely worth the... More

Beautiful garden. There is a small entrance fee, but it is worth it. It dates from the 1700's. Don't miss the Venus and Adonis' fresco by Wenzel Lorenz Reiner in the Sala Terrena. The Vrtba also offers great views of Prague.

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

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.
