  • The baroque garden is an oasis with gardens and green fantasy and its calm, relaxing, tired people with walking pražsk. The Castle or from other parties of Prague Mala Strana for quiet relaxation or meditation on the benches behind the walls of the busy city. Course there are frequent svadby.

  • 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.
