Spent an enjoyable hour or so visiting the gardens and taking in the various sights. The peacocks were truly spectacular. Some interesting monuments too.

One of the entrances is just by the Metro station Malostranska so it is easily accessible. Garden is pleasant place full of statues, fountains and pools. Even during high season you can find sitting place for taking... More

We took a detour and had a bit of a rest at the Wallenstein Palace Gardens as we were making our way up to the Prague Castle. It was a pleasant surprise! Beautiful traditional gardens full of great statuary and fountains with the backdrop of a 17th century palace which now hosts the Czech Senate. The owls and Peacock who... More

From "Malostranska" metro to the senate, a very nice waalk in the summer, where sometimes you can be lucky to hit a free concert. Somehow off track and relaxing

These gardens provide tourists and locals alike with a much needed break from the endless succession of tacky souvenir shops. Aside from the immaculate lawns and hedging, the best features for me are the lake (with massive ornamental carp and wildfowl) and the stunning and unique dark grey wall feature which always reminds me of coral reef walls I have...

If you are walking around Prague, make the trip to Maslostranská and check out his amazing gardens. The peacocks just walking around, the owls, the beautiful flowers.. Its just art!

Our guide escorted us thru this just after crossing the Charles Bridge. The Eagle Owls were majestic, as they sat on very high branches, not moving at all and staring at us as we walked by. Really something to see!

Didn't visit the palace itself, but the outside is surrounded by large but peaceful and relaxing gardens with weeping willows, lovely shrubbery and flowers.

Thank Howard B

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood 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.
