April 26: Rare Garden Light Show in Prague

On April 26 from 8 pm to 10 pm the Baroque Vrtbovská Garden will be festively lit for an illuminated view of Prague by night.

The festive lighting of this garden takes place two times a year – in the spring and in the autumn. You will be surprised by the magic and beauty of this place. It offers an amazing view of the Prague Castle and part of the historical center.

Entry to the terraced Italian garden is through Vrtba Palace from Karmelitská street. The garden cuts into the Petřín slope and stretches from the courtyard of the palace to the southwest. 

The creation of this magnificent palace garden is associated with the construction boom around 1720. The garden was designed by František Maxmilián Kaňka, who first renovated the palace for Jan Josef, Count of Vrtba and then created the garden.
