We saw a children's concert here which was poorly planned. The people in the audience could not even see the performers. The gardens were lovely and the dripping wall was very unusual!

Usually ornaments from before our time is fairly boring. But here we found plenty of funny things in the paintings and wood cuttings on ceilings and walls. E.g. horses with insane looks.

Waldstein Palace (also known a Wallenstein Palace) is now the home of the Czech Senate. Some of its most magnificent rooms are open to the public on weekends for free.

The gardens are very simple but well maintained and enhanced by the buildings and scenery around them. Doesn't take long to visit (allow less than an hour) but peaceful and away from the Prague crowds, no tours either! 😀😀😀

Enjoyed the visit greatly and even more by understanding details of the architecture and culture with the support of well prepared tour guide Anna, totally with the experience. Archuitectural periods is one key element of the palace

I literally stumbled upon this place whilst wandering around in Prague on a recent weekend visit. There's no entry charge and full access, including to the interior of the palace, is permitted. The gardens are especially impressive, the interior perhaps more average. Worth a visit...More

Excellent visitor attraction that includes statues, fountain, beautiful buildings and 'that wall'...not real stone I don't think but certainly odd, formal gardens and on previous visits we have seen white peacocks - wonderful

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.
