We just happened upon these gardens on the slope of Petrin Hill. One of the most important baroque gardens of Prague. What a beautiful respite from our hectic day. Beautiful views, peaceful and serene. Small entrance fee.

It took me 2 or 3 times to find this (kind of) hidden place but it's well worth it. The best way is to go to the back of Aria hotel, opposite to no. 22-23 Karmelitska street. I visited in the late summer and would...More

A surprisingly compact and impressive small garden providing a welcome break from browsing this great historic city. To have the best view you need to be prepared to walk up on a rather steep staircase but the view of the garden, Prague castle and the...More

the gardens are a bit of an oasis of calm in the Lesser town area. It was quite hard to find the entrance (we walked further than we should to look for it). The entrance is through a gateway on a busy street, and didn't...More

While on Petrin Hill, we enjoyed the Vrtba Gardens. Lovely flowers and native plants. We also purchased sparkling lemonade from a sidewalk vendor.

A lovely way to spend some of your time while in Prague is in the Vrtba Garden. Beautiful flowers and shrubs-relaxing and rejuvenating.

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
