Just happened upon this place, tucked away... Not a lot of people there.... very beautiful statues and gardens! Be sure to look closely at the Grotto wall and find all the faces and sculptures incorporated into it!

It is unfortunate that this hidden park is only open during late-spring through summer and early autumn. It is well worth a visit, but look very carefully or you will miss the entrance.

Arguably one of the best gardens to see in Prague, for it's labyrinths, roman mythology sculptures, man made grotto, live peacocks and beautiful fountains. It's free and offers refuge from the typical crowded touristic sights.

This upscale country house/palace was included on our recent Grand Circle tour and it was an interesting and pleasant excursion from Prague. The hunting lodge character was reinforced for us as we arrived amid a hunting craft faire that was just closing up a two or three day event. Lots of bows and arrows, blacksmiths, archers, a falconer, food booths,... More

The entrance is tucked away behind the Malostranská metro station. The gardens are large and beautiful, with peacocks roaming around.

Spent an enjoyable hour or so visiting the gardens and taking in the various sights. The peacocks were truly spectacular. Some interesting monuments too.

We took a detour and had a bit of a rest at the Wallenstein Palace Gardens as we were making our way up to the Prague Castle. It was a pleasant surprise! Beautiful traditional gardens full of great statuary and fountains with the backdrop of a 17th century palace which now hosts the Czech Senate. The owls and Peacock who... More

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.
