  • Such a pretty graden, but it's better to see it from the top, because of the work made on the bushes. Another advantage is that it seemed to be not such a crowded place, even know I've been there duri...  more »

  • 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.
