This strictly geometrically designed early Baroque garden was created in parallel with the construction of the Wallenstein Palace from 1623 to 1629. At first sight, one's eyes are drawn to the massive sala pavilion, which at the time of its construction was unprecedented, and an artificial cave with stalactites (grotto). In summer the garden is the venue for concerts and theatrical performances.

The Wallenstein garden is probably the first palace garden in Prague built in connection with the palace object. It belongs to the Wallenstein Palace No. 17, accessible from the Valdštejnské Square, No. 4. Strictly geometrical garden representing early Baroque spreads between the palace, the Wallenstein Riding School and Letenská Street, and it is enclosed by a wall. Its surface area is 1.7 ha. The palace complex, including the garden, was built in the years 1623 - 1630. Albrecht of Wallenstein, imperial army general of Ferdinand II, created the premises in place of 25 houses, 7 gardens, a brick-kiln and other land plots.

The note about default photo
The picture depicts a southeastern corner of a garden. In the left foreground, there is a sculpture of Adonis and Venus. The default photo shows this sculpture in the center of the frame. I should actually take a few steps to the right. However, that area is off-limits to visitors.
