These gardens are the perfect place to take a well deserved rest after having visited the Castle when you leave it by its eastern side and go down the long path to the Vlatva River. It is located in the heart of Mala Strana and if you have still some strength left it will be the appropriate break before continuing... More

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 if you get the opportunity.

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

I just walked into what I thought it was just a public garden. It turned out to be the Senate. There are a few building comprising the Senate. There are guided visits to at least 1 of the buildings. The gardens are beautiful. The are peacocks, ducks, fish and birds. The actual Senate building is beautiful with fantastic paintings on... More

This unique garden in a baroque style is a small traquile place within the busy and very touristy Mala Strana. Take a rest here and enjoy the view on Prague from the upper terrace. The garden pavillions are often used for weddings, which means just parts of the garden are open for the public. But even then they are worth... More

We were walking from Old Town to the Prague Castle and we came upon this garden. It was a beautiful diversion, and we got some great pictures while walking through. The hydrangeas were absolutely gorgeous! The grotto wall was unusual and an interesting find. Nice public toilets in the gardens, which charged a fair price. Take your own water, though.... More

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

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

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.
