We were just strolling when we found this little gem of a garden. We entered through a small door set in a very high wall which looks quite imposing from the outside. It’s actually the garden of the Czech Senate, so I think it’s nice they freely admit visitors. In the UK, and I suspect many other countries, politicians would... More

Beautiful place, nice gardens, a great place for a relaxed stroll or just to chill out. No entery fee, highly recomended, just outside out the Malostranska tube station.

Whilst Valdstein Palace is not open to the public ( it is the location of the Czech Senate ) , the Gardens are free to enter. However, its only open in the summer months. One unusual feature of the gardens is the White Peacocks, which wander around the Palace grounds, although the normal variety of Peacocks are also present. They... More

Pleasant walk through lovely gardens with some unusual features-- an owl aviary and a "dripstone wall" with hidden faces. The garden paths made a convenient shortcut from our hotel in Mala Strana to walk to one of the bridges to the Jewish section.

Good place to spend some minutes walking with great ohoto ops. Please note that the location on the map Tripadvisor map is wrong so look for the Wallenstein gardens for the right location if you are planning on going.

The Baroque Wallenstein Palace, currently the home of the Czech Senate, is not open for visiting. However, I strongly recommend its gardens! The Wallenstein Palace Gardens feature a large pond (used for small boats in the past) many statues (of Greek mythological figures) and fountains which are copies of the original ones made by famous Dutch artist Adrian de Vries....

We enjoyed the visit of the Palace on a sunny day in September. It offers great views of the Castle Hill, and the landscape is amazing. Don't miss out if you have the time!

We visited the Waldstein Palace, and had the happy coincidence of an exhibition that combined works by Marc Chagall and the Czech graphic artist Bohuslav Reynek whose Bible illustrations were on view in the Czech Republic evidently for the first time. The Palace and the grounds are immaculately preserved and presented for visiting tourists.. All an easy walk and close... More

Located within the Valdestein Gardens, it offers great architecture and art (the walls are covered with paintings). Excellent to enjoy on a sunny day.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
