This place is located outside the sight of the main tourist street. Take the A (green line) to metro station Malostranská. Go up all the escalators and at the top turn left. Right when you get outside turn right. There will be a gate and then a little door to the garden. The entrance is a little hard to find... More

A nice place for a respite from the heat, but I always expect to see flowers in gardens, not just shrubs and trees and one shy peacock. A bit disappointing.

What a nice place. Like walking into wonder land. The green, the fountains, the sculptures. Even a white peacock! And to top it all, a strange wall. Glad I got there.

So glad we searched out this garden. Wander the grounds, saw some peacocks, interesting statues and that weird wall. Sat quietly with my hubby and enjoyed the scenery.

Make certain you see one of the seven wonders of Prague--the Weeping Wall of Wallenstein Palace. Built of artificial stalactites representing a cave or grotto, the wall is one of the most unusual sites to behold. Very few tourist publications mention this unusual place. So, check it out and take a lot of photos--I did. Your friends will be amazed... More

There are lots of botanical gardens in Prague. Some are located in public parks, some are found within castle grounds, and some are located in palace courtyards. This is a delightful garden to stroll with many statues and lots of greenery. But section of the garden situated at Wallenstein Palace, is unique, not because it has unusual flowers or an... More

What a lovely find! A beautiful garden in a city centre that is tranquil and well kept. A welcome break from the madding crowd. When we visited in the late afternoon on a hot July day it was almost empty! To see peacocks roaming, huge fish in the pools was just stunning. This was the last place we visited before... More

A classically themed garden hidden behind tall walls that block out the hustle and bustle that is Prague. Sit by the giant fountain pool and chill with the large carp/ koi.

Literally at the Malostranska metro and tram stop is this free garden. The front half of the garden which was surrounded by a high wall was a nice formal path lined with greenery. The central focus was an enormous square pond with an impressive fountain centre piece. The central fountain featured Hercules fighting a dragon. Around the peripheral were four... More
