Everything is just so neat, just being in the garden,walking around enjoying the peaceful place. It's not crowded, just the birds chipping away

We visited the gardens. Seeing the peacocks and pea hens just walking about was so beautiful. Then there was the stalactite inspired wall, an owl sanctuary and beautiful statues.

Commissioned by General von Wallenstein, this lovely park-like area just below the Castle features a gorgeous formal garden (complete with white peacocks) and a lovely view below the castle and St. Vitus Church. We happened upon the gardens by accident on our walk down from the Castle and were very pleased we did. It was a sunny day and this... More

The only place in this beautiful city that can be enjoyed without a crowd. Hard to believe it was built for one man. Well maintained and beautiful.

Strolling along and wandering in the old city I stumbled upon this fantastic haven. I didn' t know where I was until later but the break from the crowds was very nice. Beautiful groomed gardens, a few peacocks and peace and quiet... Spend an hour walking about or jusr sit and read, this really is a break from the tourists...

We came to Prague during international hockey championships and found the city very busy and crowded with tourists. Wallenstein Palace Gardens was a lovely quiet place to retreat from the crowds. It is very well maintained.

Charming gardens which are a haven of peace, hidden away in the Mala Strana area of Prague. I loved the grotto, the formal garden and the ponds, but by far the grandest thing was the very proud white peacock. Lovely!

My favorite place to read a book and soak up some sun in Malstranska. A beautifully manicured public garden, Wallenstein gardens is definitely a must. There's a beautiful fountain, a lovely pond, two wandering peacocks and peahens, bronze statues, art, and a grotto to boot. Not to mention there's an abundance of owls being kept right next to the grotto... More

Better than going to a coffee, try it. Nice views and photo ops, will take only like half an hour to see it, mostly the gardens.

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.
