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

This is a really nice break from the heave of the crowds, we sat and watched the peackcks, had a walk around, and tried to spot faces in the wall. It's a lovely place to rest and chill out after a lot of city walking. The wall is really cool, the longer you look at it the more faces you... More

This garden was recommended by my tour guide, so I gave it a go. Turned out it is so beautiful, it reminds me of the garden in Versailles. It's so quiet here, probably because it's not very well-known or probably because it's a bit hidden. It's a great place to relax and just sit staring at the lush trees and... More

We have only just found this place despite having been to Prague five times now! It is free, very beautiful and a recommended by us for a visit. We will re visit when we come back to Prague and cannot believe it took us five visits to Prague to discover it!

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.
