Go on a clear day, the views of the city are outstanding! The gardens are beautiful and we'll maintained. I spent a lot more time than I planned here because it was so lovely. It ended up being one of my favorite things in Prague.

We were brought here on a private Prague tour of supposedly secret locations. The tour was great, the garden beautiful. But it's a garden. If I lived in Prague, I'd go there regularly; to sit, enjoy the roses and the calming atmosphere (sans tourists ;-)...More
