Hidden Gardens of Prague

While wondering around Malá Strana one day, I stumbled upon not one, but two hidden gardens!

The first was Vojanovy Sady, a walled, grassy enclave in the middle of a fairly busy street.

It was quite peaceful with very few people. Although several peacocks called this pretty, little park home.

The second was Wallenstein Garden, the gardens outside of the Senate Palace, which I quickly realized wasn’t quite as “hidden” as the first. This one had beautiful geometric garden mazes outside an absolutely stunning Senate building.

I actually lucked out as the Senate Palace happened to be open for a few hours and I was able to roam around inside. While I didn’t get any pictures, it was all very beautiful.

On my way out, I once again soaked in the gorgeous weather and scenery.

  1. Loving all your Prague updates, Emily! Also stumbled upon the Wallenstein Gardens during our visit in ’12. Lucked out with a free concert and informative walk thru the Czech Resistance Movement exhibit. Pretty interesting ‘grotesque’ wall! Tried to get into the Polish Embassy gardens as well but no luck 😜
