An oasis of tranquility and architectural genius, Vrtba Garden feels miles away from the bustling streets of Prague. In actuality, it sits right alongside the tourist hotspot that is Malá Strana. A narrow, easy-to-miss archway wedged between a Trdelník stand and a traditional Czech restaurant represents the garden’s entrance. Duck under another arch - this one straddled by ivy - and you’ve come upon the grounds of the 300-year-old Vrtba Garden.
