My mother and I visited The Vrtba Garden on a whim as we had stumbled across a review on TripAdvisor and needed something to occupy our final day in Prague. I'm so glad that we did because this was by far the best attraction that we went to. The walled gardens are beautiful and really outshine the castle gardens (which... More

I felt like Alice in Wonderland -- it's so beautiful and in a secret spot in the city. It's a little hard to find because you have to walk through an alley/building entry way but it's worth it.

Lovely garden with beautiful view and statues. Very quiet amidst bustling city. Definitely worth a quick stop.

Romantic, not crowded and not easy to find place. We enjoyed it to cool down after visiting the castle. Nice view.

It was my second visit to Vrtba Garden. First time it was September, when whole garden was still in bloom, this time, late May colors were definately not there yet. But a 100% still worth it. Views are excellent. Main goal is to be there with no weddings around which can majorly limit your access to parts of the gardens.... More

This place is now that known, access is thru the yard of old residential house from Karmelitska street. Once you see the arch with statue of Atlas carrying the Globe in the yard, you are on the right track. This garden was founded 300 years ago and reconstructed to its original beauty during last 20 years. Not many people know... More

I loved this garden.. Small and manageable and close to attractions. Price is very low also. It's just a block or so away from the street up to Prague Castle

What a beautiful garden , it's a little peace of harmony in a busy city , sit in the garden chill out and experience some quite time with mega views , grape a roll and a coffee and it's a great spot to sit down for a picnic

I missed stopping here my last time in Prague but was so glad I found this on my most recent trip. This was one of my favorite things we did in Prague. The gardens weren't very crowded, I think we saw 2 or 3 other groups of people the entire time we were there. I think this is because like... 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.
