Wallenstein Garden (Valdštejnská zahrada)

Continuing from the last two posts (read here and here), next come a few photos of one Baroque garden that is straight in Prague city centre – the Wallenstein Garden (Valdštejnská zahrada in Czech).

How to get there?

It couldn’t be easier. If you use the tube (metro), take the green line A to the Malostranská station. When you exit, you will be standing directly in front of the entrance to the garden. There is also bus 194 and 10 different tram lines stopping in front of the garden. Easy.

Entrance fee and what you get for that

This is one of the sentences tourists like to hear: The entry is free. What more do you want?

Maybe this – you get a lot for exchange! You will stroll in a manicured garden with statues and walk around a pond with fountains, peeking into the greenhouse on the side. You will also see the Senate building with pretty frescoes, an artificial grotto (cave with stalactites) and a cage with big owls. And yeah, the view of the Prague castle from a not-so-typical angle is also great.

In winter the garden is closed, but it will open again in April. So if you plan to come to Prague in spring, summer or autumn, put it on your bucket list. It’s an ideal place to see if you travel on a tight budget. But even if you do not – make sure you do not miss this place and include it in your itinerary.
