Vtrba Garden (Vrtbovská Zahrada)

Vtrba Garden (Vrtbovská Zahrada) (38)

At number 5 Letenská Street stands the Vtrba Palace, which was built between 1707 and 1725 at the behest of Frantisek Vtrba. It is a Baroque building that today houses the head offices of the Architect’s Association.

The Vtrba Garden, which is behind the palace, is well worth seeing since it is a magnificent garden of Baroque origin, arranged in terraces with balustrades. It was designed in 1720 over what had previously been vineyards by Frantisek Maximilián Kanka, who also took part in the Clementinum.

Strolling around the peaceful Vtrba Garden you will come across statues of classical Gods and vases sculpted in stone. They are the work of the famous Baroque sculptors Matyás Braun and Ferdinand Brokof, author of some of the sculptures on Charles Bridge.

If you head towards the lower part of the garden, you will come across a pavilion called the Terrestrial Hall, decorated with paintings by Václav Vavrinec Reiner.

The Vtrba Garden might be a good spot to have a rest and let your eyes wander among the unbeatable views over Malá Strana and Prague Castle. It is also an excellent spot to escape from the crowds, since it is a place that not everyone knows about.
