Another one of the main highlights of my visit. Exquisitely beautiful, like a compact and less ostentatious version of the gardens of Versailles. Free roaming peacocks, an owl aviary, a lovely Baroque style open air sale, perfect for chamber orchestra performances or even a simply and intimately staged baroque opera. A lovely place to wander in peace, never seems to... More

Walking past the palace exploring the Mala Strana - we just dipped in and were surprised to find very nice gardens, surrounding the palace (which form part of the seat of the Czech senate). Free, easy to explore , worth a visit, if for nothing else than the large limestone wall , which we spotted from the Castle and wondered... More

Lovely garden gem hidden behind the metro station gives you a great insight into the history of baroque formal garden art. The garden is a peacefull retreat from hot and busy Prague old city.

These expansive gardens, located alongside the Wallenstein Palace (now in part the Czech senate buildings) are most attractive, and a good place to duck away from the hustle and bustle of Prague. In style, they are typical of what you may find preserved around many upmarket 17-18th century houses and mansions. Think of sculpted hedges, fountains and classical-style statues. These... More

The gardens are beautiful, with statues and fountains in a well maintained setting. There are some eerie features, like the wall of faces which was created as a piece of permanent art for the city. There's also an avery and it's set close to Czech Parliament, so is safe and clean, and very central.

One whole wall of the Garden is gray and looks like mud that's been drip-dried. It's visible from the Tower at the Castle so we were determined to find it. There's also a small aviary that houses owls (if there are other birds also, we didn't see them). A large white bird (peacock) was roaming through the low, trimmed bushes.... More

The formal gardens here are very pretty. There aren't many tourists so it is a nice break away from the tourist hourdes in Prague. What makes it worth a visit are the peacocks. There were a number of peacocks here including a beautiful white peacock. There is also a large pond and fountain with large koi fish. This was a... More

My family and I had an amazing time at this charming garden. It is so much more then just a place with leaves and flowers. First off, the grass and flowers were in prime condition and were taken care of very well. The statues and the fountains were shiny and looked new. Continue on to the Western side of the... More

I had higher expectations from Wallenstein Gardens because of what I had seen in images and on television. Per se it wasn't bad but it wasn't as exemplary as I believed it would be. The interiors were excellent but the palace from outside was a minor letdown and so were the gardens. Still I won't not recommend people from not... More

I now think of Prague as a city of gardens, and this was one of the lovely ones. Its design easily accommodates a fairly large number of visitors - good since it is a free attraction. The statuary was exquisite. The peacocks were the prettiest I have ever seen, both the typically colored and the all-white ones. The stalactite wall... 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.
