If you are tired of so many people in Prague, this garden provides a nice option to relax. Its not far from the bridge and castle and its relaxing and peaceful.

Located on Karmelitska Street at Mala Strana, Vrtbovska Garden is located on the slopes of the Petrin hill on the west side of the City of Prague. The Baroque terraced garden was built in 1715-1720for the Earl of Vrtba, Jan Joseph, the chancellor of Prague Castle. Considered of of the most beautiful gardens in Central Europe, Vrtba was extensively restored from 1993-1998 at the cost of 45 million Czech crowns and for the past 20 years has been the site of weddings, receptions and cultural events.
The entry level has a fountain surrounded with manicured plantings and a decorative wall. The middle terrace is an expansive area with curving segments, classic style sculptures and wonderful topiaries. A pair of symmetrical staircases lead to the third terrace and yet another staircase leading to the look out point. During our visit on a bright sunny day in April, the views across Prague from the highest tier were magnificent.
The gardens are open daily usually from 10am-7pm, but may close for special events.

We stumbled on this garden by chance and with the help of google maps. Just down the road from our hotel but never realised it was there.

Very peaceful and pretty gardens, I agree with other comments there are not many flowers but I thought it was beautiful. The view across the town from the top level was fabulous and the entry charge minimal. We visited late afternoon so was nice and quiet.

Really worth trying to find it.
