Enjoyed walking around and looking at all the details. The layout was interesting but for the modern gardener may be too structured and unvaried. Beautiful place to walk up and around the terraces. Take in the views from the top terrace. Small fee.

We went with children. And we found it quite small..😯😯 Even though it is beutifull, I would suggest if you have free time and some additional euro than you can try this garden.....

Realy beautiful French garden in the middle of town but hidden away behind an anonimous gate. You have to pay to get in but it is well worth it. We saw a bride and groome have their pictures taken here.

Having stayed in Prague for 6 months, I found out this little garden only 1 week before departure but it was absolutely stunning. Very classic baroque garden with nice plantation and picturesque view of the city Prauge. It's one of the places where you can overlook almost every famous attraction in the city. definitely a must-see after the castle or... More

As an Indian I know this place because a prominent movie 'Rockstar' had one of its songs shot here and I loved the picturisation of that song which went a long way in making me come here. Vrtbovska doesn't dissapoint one bit, its a beautiful garden while at the same time from the upper level you get a magnificent view... More

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

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.
