  • When the castle crowds become too much, then simply escape the crowds of tourist groups and wonder through the tranquil gardens for a taste of natures beauty in the city.  more »
  • This hidden park opens one of the best panoram views in Prague i've seen. Reasonable price for entrance + there is a nice another park with peacocks in front of it for free €  more »
  • Glimpses of the gardens can be seen from vantage points in or just at the bottom end of the castle. Some of them can be viewed as you descend from the castle once out of the vineyards and as you pass ...  more »

  • Lovely place, calm and strong. If you love gardens, that is your object. Historical atmosphere, romantic. There is a public toilet, entrence not big money, not crowdy place. Also concerts take part in
  • Beautiful and well-kept. Opening time a little late (10am) and closing time a little early. Great city view, nice atmosphere.
  • A well hidden terrace garden, very rural Italian in feel, it gives you a panoramic view of the city below just like Vrtbovská Garden, however, this one is more carefree in nature and I mean it in a good way. Not many people here as well, and I assure you it’s well worth the 200 CZK you pay for entry.
  • Quiet gem of a garden. There were several terraces to explore with amazing views everywhere. Well worth the hundred crowns to enter.
  • Beautiful and very quiet place ignored by most people. Gorgeous garden and nice view. Not so easy to find
