Stroll Around Wallenstein Garden

Wallenstein Garden (Valdštejnská jízdárna in Czech) is a fabulous Baroque masterpiece situated near the base of Prague Castle. It is not the most secluded and serene of the many gardens and parks in the neighborhood, but it’s one of the more stunning. Worth visiting for the views of Prague Castle alone, the park is home to Wallenstein Palace, a serene Koi pond, and some sweet statues.

And oh yeah, a white peacock or two. As always, please don’t feed or touch the animals...

Stroll across the Charles Bridge

Whoever said that “the best things in life are free” may well have been referring to the Charles Bridge in Prague.
