Many of the shrubs were in need of a haircut when we were there a few days ago. Nice views of the castle and city from up high. Not sure I'd put this on my list, though, if I were crunched for time. Not free.

These gardens are a great place to find some peace and quiet after touring with all of the crowds. It's not very big, but we found it to be charming and worth the visit.

Today we visited the Vrtba Garden on our way to Prague castle, and it took our breaths away; the garden is very well-kept and it has some beautiful patterns, similar to a tiny and low maze. There are several different types of plants and flowers and a few peacocks roaming freely around, plus some big cages with majestic owls. Instead... More

Small admission - worth it! It is a smaller garden, but take the time to enjoy it. Beautifully groomed and a great example of baroque gardens. Stunning

A true formal garden with stunning views of Prague. This garden is a series of terraces that go up a hill. There are often weddings in this beautiful tranquil place.

One of the hidden places of Prague, which you should definitely visit! There is stunning city view from there, and the garden itself is really amazing! The entry price is 100kc

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

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.
