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.

We chose the wrong time - Spring hadn't yet arrived. saying that, there are spectacular views all round. Good place to chillax after being among the hordes of tourists at the castle and the Old Town Square

It's a bit hard to find the entrance to the garden. After walking down the steps from Prague Castle I always take my guests there. Simply walk through Malostranska subway station, and turn right immediately. Walk through the gate, turn left, and in the middle of the garden turn left again, until you reach the garden wall. Admire, enjoy and... More

As part of the Wallenstein Palace, the Wallenstein Palace Gardens feature a large pond (used for small boats in the past) many statues (of Greek mythological figures) and fountains which are copies of the original ones made by famous Dutch artist Adrian de Vries. Take a particular look at the huge "sala terrena" (or garden pavilion) with its rich stucco... More

when you go down from the castle into the Mala Strana don't forget to go through the gardens. I went there by midday, when an orchestra gave a wonderful free concert in the gardena.

I hope this is the place with a beautiful garden with peacocks, fountains, and displays in front of the palace of what the Nazis and Communists did to the Czech people, not pleasant reading, but necessary to understand proud resilient intelligent, wonderful people.

Thanks to Alena from the Personal Prague Guide we went to the Valdstein palace/gardens. Unfortunately we only had time to wander around the gardens but that was a perfect way to get a break from all the crowds. We were fortunate enough to see a white peacock. We also loved the huge limestone grotto with "hidden" faces, frogs, snakes. We... More

Worth a visit if you have time, we saw it on our way back down from Prague Castle. A hidden gem that lies halfway between the castle stairs and the Church of St Nicholas, close to Malostranska Metro and tram stations. Head down the road Letenska, if walking from the river side, walk on the right side of the road... 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.
