  • This is the one of the most beautiful garden directly in center of Prague. Instead of charles bridge with horribly many tourists you will find place of peace and silence. Bring a book to read or fianc...  more »
  • It's an experience, even though i was here to do a job, there's a beautiful acoustics, that I found and could appreciate, since I had the opportunity to sing in the framework of the implementation of the Baroque Opera

  • even if due to the site on the UNESCO World Heritage list. You can easily miss the entrance to the gardens, but the entrance to the middle ... a completely different world. In a moment we come away from the hustle and bustle of Prague's streets and we are in one of the most beautiful gardens in the world.

  • It's a wonderful garden, small but it offers a great sight of the city once you climb up the two sets of stairs. The garden and its statues belong to a style close to the Italian tradition. There's plenty of green and flowers and also an aviary with exotic birds.
  • Very nice garden that's worth the 5 euro. Also the view from the top is great.
  • Nice quiet garden. There is an entrance fee, and it is on the smaller side, but it is EXTREMELY well-maintained and a great place for a break from the crowded street. People were sitting on the benches eating some gelato they brought in from outside, and the view from the top is quite picturesque.
  • Beautiful place. Do go there if ypu have the time!
  • A really beautiful and little Italian garden with a panoramic view of Prague. Definitely a must-see.
