This quiet oasis in Prague's Mala strana neighborhood is, quite literally, unbelievable--benches, fountains, peacocks, aviary. It's a lovely place to sit and and enjoy being in one of the most beautiful ancient capitals of Europe.

Beautiful garden below the palace complex. Very relaxing. Interesting statuary and "dripping" wall. Peacocks. fountains. Not the ultimate but a free and good brief distraction from all the urban astonishment that awaits you. I recommend it.

This is a beautiful garden tucked away between the Malostranska Metro station, and Wallenstein Palace. It is beautifully manicured. There is a pond with koi fish and water fowl, and peacocks wander the grounds. There is a beautiful array of scrubs and greenhouse which grows a fascinating variety of hothouse flowers and plants. Rows of statues line the path to... More

I stumbled on to these gardens by accident, as the entrance is close to a metro stop. I loved the albino peacock. There are several normal peacocks too, they can get pretty loud. The wall on one side of the garden is downright creepy. My mom told me there are concerts in these gardens, I'd love to attend one.

The walled gardens of the Wallenstein Palace are tranquil and quiet. It's a nice place to rest a bit after walking all day.

The Wallenstein Palace gardens are situated by the Palace of the same name. I think i'ts the biggest curiosity of Mala strana. The gardes are large and very, very well arranged. You can have there a pleasant walk and a short rest after the visit of the Palace. Beuatiful meadows and flowers, some statues and fountains. Many banks, where you... More

We almost walked by the gardens. Needs a better sign out front. The garden is small but beauty like. There are peacocks inside. The grotto wall is at the back as is a small aviary with owls. Greta view of the castle on the hill.

I came upon this garden unexpectedly. An unassuming door takes you into a world of Roman statues, fountains, an aviary with huge owls and a wierd but strangely fascinating wall made to look abit like a cave. This is where the Czech Senate sit. Lucky them.

We walked by these gardens one day and then looked them up and read a bit about them and returned the next day. They are in Mala Strana on the way to the next bridge up from the Charles and close to a green line metro stop. The palace now serves as the Czech Senate. I agree with other reviewers... 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.
