While we were walking down from the Prague Castle to Town hall, our guide took us to this place. I thought the travel company was trying to kill time. But I was wrong. This is a beautiful complex and a welcome relief after the walk down in the heat.The garden is beautifully laid with a few sculptures. The stone cement... More

Mala Strana isn't the biggest town area in Prague, and it seems inconceivable that it could even house a park this size, and inside one of its palaces to boot. I was therefore very surprised when I first encountered it a couple of years back, but always try to pop in if I'm in the vicinity. Even if it has... More

We went on a cool rainy day. There really wasn't much to see. There were no flowers in bloom just paths among green plots. The palace wasn't much to see either. Perhaps in the summer it would be worthwhile.

Not the easiest place to find but there's an entrance off Letenska and another off Tomasska. The palace itself is used for official purposes so not open other than on some weekends. But the gardens are open daily during the summer months so not sure why other reviewers found it difficult to gain access. They are FREE and worth a... More

We were already in this region so our tour guide took us through this lovely garden area. It was a nice break from the busy crowds and the landscaping was very picturesque (see the resident peacocks). I wouldn't go out of my way to come here but it was definitely worth a 10 minute detour. They even had a concert... More

Lovely gardens and amazing senate building, part of the government offices. The gardens are sort of hidden in amongst the whole Wallenstein Palace complex, we had to ask where they were. Hard to believe you are actually in the middle of a busy city centre. Nice for a stroll around whilst still getting views of the castle. Free to have... More

The Wallenstein Palace and Gardens are one of the nicest places to visit during your stay in Prague. The baroque Palace (early 17th century) is currently the home of the Czech Senate and the Main Building has marvellous paintings and frescoes. The gardens are really lovely !!

The gardens are free to visit and are open most days, I believe, but if you are interested in seeing the palace (Which is now used for government business), you need to visit on the weekend as it is only open to the public then.

The Palace is part of the Czech Senate residence and the entrance is free of charge. The gardens are beautiful and has a very interesting wall structure. Another good place for wedding photography.

This made for a great starting point. It is a free and beautiful garden to visit. Very well maintained and with the added bonus of being right next to a Metro spot. On weekends, a number of the government rooms are open and well worth looking round. This too is free. You seem to get guided tours going into the... 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.
