Bohemian, Moravian, Silesian
These gardens are part of the baroque residence of the Vrtba family, they were built in the 16th century. The intimate courtyard of the Vrtbovský palác (Vrtba Palace) is flanked by two Renaissance wings; the left one was built in the year 1575, the right one in the year 1591. Five levels rise behind the courtyard in a wave of statuary-bedecked staircases and formal terraces to reach a seashell-decorated pavilion at the top. (The fenced-off garden immediately behind and above belongs to the U.S. Embassy.) The powerful stone figure of Atlas that caps the entranceway in the courtyard and many others are from the workshop of Mathias Braun, perhaps the best of the Czech Baroque sculptors.
The gardens are open from April to October.
