Beautiful gardens in Mala Strana, where you can spend some quiet time, take some romantic photos, have a great view of the city and also book for special events.

This garden doesn't look like it even belongs in Prague. You would never know it was there from the street, and we really had to search for it to find it. I went there with my boyfriend and it was very romantic and we took some really beautiful pictures in there. It kind of felt like a secret garden!

Very beautiful place that worth your time. Those gardens provide you the feeling of peace and quiet in the big city, take your time and energize yourself. This is my number one spot in Prague for weddings and wedding photography.

This smallish garden can be a bit difficult to find. The entrance is off the street that runs parallel to the river and is basically a gap between a few buildings. The entrance fee I think was about 70 Koruna which is probably a fair price considering the gardens are not huge. Inside the gardens are on 3 or 4... More

I entered the Garden & from the beginning it slopes down which gave me a lovely view of the lesser town of Prague.The garden was really beautiful as it was summer when I visited it with all the flowers in full bloom.The flower beds are neatly arranged in a rather formal way with large staircases & statues of Roman Gods...

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.

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.

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.
