The Grotto wall is this enormous mass of artificial stalactites with many of hidden faces build by Albrecht Wallenstein around 1630. You will not find this anywhere else. Plus it is free to see, which these days is a rarity in Prague. The home of senate, quiet gardens, white peacocks roaming free, big owls (in big cages) and numerous 15th... More

I love the fact that there are peacocks roaming about freely in the gardens. It's always beautifully looked after, it's quite big with lots of secluded areas to sit down and chat.

This is such a relaxing and well maintained garden to walk through. I took a nice romantic stroll with my date, amd it has great atmosphere ;) There is also a pretty pond with fish, small water birds, and even peacocks!

This has got to be my favorite place in Praha! I have been here several times. It is so beautiful and peaceful. A great place to sit on the bench and read or take a lunch. There is so much to take in the Koi pond, the peacocks, the owls, the statues and the lovely grounds... but make sure to... More

This free and peaceful garden designed in the 1620's is hidden within the Czech Senate. You can see the large black dripstone grotto from the palace. Free to get in and with free concerts. It is on the way between the bottom of the castle hill and the Charles bridge.

Little pond with Koi carp,interesting statues and a big cage in the corner with Owls. Fantastic place to get away from the noise of the city for an hour or so. Martha Steward visited here years ago and so should you :-)

I adored these gardens. On arrival I felt I had stumbled upon a sanctuary in a bustling, manic but beautiful city. The gardens were small but stunning and I enjoyed leisurely strolling through the different aspects. If you enjoy formal symmetry that has a calming effect then these are for you. I would suggest you make a visit as part... More

The most impressive thing in this garden was the wall, next to the main gate. The wall looks like artificial not natural, stalactites. The shapes also wired but interesting. There are also some owls in the big outdoor cage. There are some meaning but I could not find that. It is good to have a walk there.

Wallenstein Palace and Gardens are in the Little Quarter, just a little off the beaten track but well worth finding. It is home to the Czech Senate, but open to the general public and the large gardens contain statues, fountains an aviary and an amazing carved stone wall. There are plenty of benches and restful seating areas, and the huge... More
