This small but wonderful garden is tucked away on a street so don’t miss it. It’s the seat (or one of them) of the Czech Senate. I can see why they like it here. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the peacocks, owls, fish and...More

This place is very hidden! It's easy to miss as there are just a set of fancy door with stucco walls from the outside (see photo), if the door hadn't been open I wouldn't have seen the garden inside. I'm so glad we stopped by!...More

We were really looking forward to visiting the Wallenstien Palace whilst in Prague but we did not realise it is open only at the weekend. It was not a waste of time as we went into the gardens instead, absolutely beautiful and free to enter.

There is a dripping wall built by one owner of the Wallenstein Palace. The gardens are beautiful and there is an unusual white peacock roaming the grounds.
