Enjoy one a magnificent baroque landscaping in Vrtbovská zahrada, a large garden built on the slope of Petrin Hill in Prague. Made up of Italian-style terraces connected by stairs and supported by curved walls, the garden features many exquisite sculptures of Ceres and Bacchus and elaborate rail guards crafted by some of the best artists of the 18th century Habsburg Prague. A circular pool with a statue of sea monster is surrounded by fine labyrinth topiary and live fences. Interior decorations have been well-preserved with fresco paintings and there is an aviary featuring some rare birds maintained by Prague Zoo. Enjoy views of the city from a tranquil spot.

  • Very beautiful place! You should definitely visit it! It's nice to just sit at the beautiful benches and listen to the sound of water in the fountain, Twitter rare birds. The situation calms. Very many couples buy photo shoot amid this beauty. Cost of attendance for adults 65 crowns, to CZK 55 students. The entrance ticket is valid during the whole day.

  • Coming down from the Castle along the Nerudova, arrived to the Church to deflect along the Karmelitska where there is the Church of the Infant Jesus of Prague, we noticed an indication of this garden dating back to the Hill. Baroque garden, small but beautifully realized on three levels in a space with some allegorical statues at the entrance. A little gem to be seen while passing through the area.

  • 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.
  • Very pretty Gardens that are hidden away right next to the tourist craziness.
  • Such a beautiful and peaceful location
