The formal gardens are a nice break from the tourist crush of the nearby old town but there are much more larger and spectacular throughout Europe. Concerts are held here throughout summer so check the local guides for what is coming up. Tucked into one corner is a large avary containing what appeared to be an extremely large species of...

Many of the palaces of Prague's Mala Strana were originally private residences so you will find a few originally private gardens walled and tucked away from the bustle of the street behind tall walls. As the Wallenstein family was particularly influential, this garden is large and offers some stunning features. Check out the grotto, the lake and greenhouse as well... More

So much beauty in one spot! My husband and I take our leisurely walks here, it such a lovely, serene garden, surrounding the Wallenstein Palace. Well kept large lake, benches, greenhouse with lush flowers, the stalactite wall, that could be seen from as far as the castle, the formal landscaping, the statuary. The Palace has been beautifully renovated, the ceiling... More

Beautiful, serene little garden tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Prague. Nice place to even sit and read for a while for a little escape. Or just walk around an enjoy the statues and fountain.

It's a nice place to rest your feet after all the hours you've walked on those cobblestone streets. It was pretty crowded when we were there. I really enjoyed the fish!

These gardens are stunning. There is a stalagmite and stalactite wall, fountains, pond with ducks, statues and perfectly groomed hedges - and it's all free! To get there stop at Malostranska metro stop and exit on the left. Then turn right and there is a small door (it's almost hidden) and voila you have entered the gardens.

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.
