Great views once you get to the top, but we did not see accommodations for people who are not strong walkers. The path up is not for the frail.

I would recommend this for people who want a short break from the busy city and want to have a more intimate experience with seeing the rooftops of Prague. We hired a photographer to take our photos around the garden and we couldn't be happier...More

A surprisingly compact and impressive small garden providing a welcome break from browsing this great historic city. To have the best view you need to be prepared to walk up on a rather steep staircase but the view of the garden, Prague castle and the...More

the gardens are a bit of an oasis of calm in the Lesser town area. It was quite hard to find the entrance (we walked further than we should to look for it). The entrance is through a gateway on a busy street, and didn't...More

While on Petrin Hill, we enjoyed the Vrtba Gardens. Lovely flowers and native plants. We also purchased sparkling lemonade from a sidewalk vendor.

A lovely way to spend some of your time while in Prague is in the Vrtba Garden. Beautiful flowers and shrubs-relaxing and rejuvenating.

A bit hidden away but worth finding. A very pretty, terraced Italian garden. We met a lovely couple from Taiwan there having their pre wedding photos taken. Very peaceful & hardly any other tourists when we went.

We were lucky to be staying at the Aria Hotel and these beautiful gardens sit directly behind it. They are terraced but easy to navigate and simply gorgeous. Took so many lovely photos there.

We walked over to Vrtba Gardens after visiting the Wallenstein Gardens- they make a good comparison- one is level and the other is terraced. I recommend them both- they were beautiful and among our favorite stops in Prague. As you walk from the square near...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

Hi, you can entry only from Karmelitska street number 25. The entry is trough courtyard. So you have to find the tram going Karmelitska street. Have a nice day in Prague:-)
