Neighborhood: Malá 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.
How to get there
  • Lesser • 4 min walk

A lovely small park , hidden away behind a wall.

Beautiful in every season. Perfect spot to take a break. There are many benches and just a few people strolling around.

Mostly locals know of this place. Tourists usually search for bigger, more popular attractions.

The park is just south of Klarov ( tram and metro station are there ) and close to Charles Bridge.

The peacocks are friendly and beautiful to photograph ....

Came across this lovely place quite by accident as I was meandering through the Malá Strana district of Prague. Doubt that many foreign visitors even know where this place is. Not surprising, I suppose, given that it’s hidden behind a gigantic wall along U Lužičkeho semináře.

This park is one of the smallest parks in Prague, and, having been established in 1248, is among the oldest. It’s also known as the Vojan Gardens or Vojanovy Sady).

Throughout the centuries, the park has had been used for various purposes, including as a religious residence.

There at two chapels in the park: the black Chapel of St. Elias, built in the form of a stalactite cave (17th century), and the white Chapel of St. Teresa of Avila (18th century).

Also, resident in the park are dozens of gorgeous, albeit noisy, peacocks!

Just a couple of minutes walk from the Franz Kafka Museum.

Had the place pretty well to myself! Not another human being in sight.

More like a large garden, smaller then Kampa park this is a quiet oasis with benches under fruit trees that display beautiful show off blooms in the spring and provide a welcomed shade in the summer. It is mostly hidden away behind a wall so it is easy to miss.
I have been there thousands of times with my childhood friends, that lived in the small houses on the street U Luzickeho Seminare, years ago when I still lived in Prague.Some of these apartments have been transformed into B&Bs. Otherwise seemingly not much has changed since 1956 when it was open to public. When the park was completely under water during the flood of 2002 it had to be rebuilt. The Czechs are good at restoring and rebuilding as it is evident all over Prague in the last 25 years.
As always, it is good to come back, spend a quiet moment and visit with the peacocks.
Beautiful in all seasons.

You can stroll here and not run into anybody for a long while.
It used to be quite popular with locals when I lived around here.
Are some residents moving out of Prague and making room for new hotels and restaurants?
I can't quite figure it out why this wonderful park remains seemingly undiscovered, but I like it that way.

Lets keep it a secret ...
I love to return

This is a hidden gem by the hustle and bustle of Charles Bridge. It's a lovely place to relax in the quiet. There are several peacocks which are stunning and add to the other worldly atmosphere

Only came upon this garden by accident when I saw a gate in a wall and decided to have a look. It is a walled garden that dates back to the 13th century and it the oldest garden inn Prague. It is quite secluded and peaceful but when I visited in December all the trees were bare. When in full bloom it must be a lovely place.

A Secret Garden? Well almost...

I try to come back on every visit to Prague and always find it serene, tranquil, peaceful, the same way it used to be when I lived in Prague, before the massive tourists crowds. No selfie sticks and loud people, no tours following an umbrella, just empty benches - so have your pick. Even in the summer ...and I was grateful for that

Sit by the little lake in the shade of a Magnolia tree (one bloom left on a tree for a beautiful photo) on a sweltering hot July day. Or take a seat farther back in the delightful company of peacocks...
Prague at it's best, still the way it used to be. At least on the day my husband and I visited.
Like a secret garden...

I never miss coming back here - it is one of my favorite places in Prague.
You should not miss it either...

Having first visited this city numerous times more then 30 years ago, and living here for many years, we also enjoy the beautiful sights and architecture just like tourists, but naturally the crowds can be at times over whelming. Its good to find a quiet respite for locals as well as tourists and this lovely walled park in Mala Strana is one of them ( unless the peacocks happen to be overly active in vocalisation ;-)

This is a mid size garden/park in middle to Malostranska that is totally surrounded by a high wall of buildings. It is just about 100 m past the Metro station and virtually unmarked except for WC sign. It makes it a great escape place from noise and crowds on streets. There is not a great amount of flowers, but great trees and varied plantings with a little pond and even some play area for kids. Was a highpoint in our day.

I found this lovely park by accident, ended up returning to it a few times. Located in Mala Strana between the Charles Bridge and Malastranska Station, from the outside all you see is a high wall until eventually you come across an entrance.

The park is not big nor small. There's nothing much to explore, this is a place for relaxation and piece of mind. Peacocks roaming free on the park grounds and if you are patient enough - one may feel relaxed enough for a close selfie.

The fact that it's hidden from view is this park's major advantage. It was so quiet during all of my visits there, mostly people reading books on benches.
