Ledeburg Garden

Gardens below Prague Castle

Malá Strana

Ledeburg Garden was founded at the beginning of the 18th century when the complex of the Ledeburg palace was the property of the Trauttmannsdorffs. The Sala Terrena, built most likely according to the project of G. B. Alliprandi, dates back to that time. The interior is decorated with paintings of ideal vedutas (eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, ruins of Pompeii, abduction of Sabine Women and mythological scenes) by an unknown painter, renovated in 1952 by B. Cila. The front wall of the garden terrace was originally decorated wit a fresco by V. V. Reiner (around 1716), depicting an Antique battle with Barbarians. The damaged fresco was replaced in 1797 with its copy by A. Machek. The lower terrace wall displays the fresco "Ma Vlast" (My Country) by A. Zabransky (1954). There is more garden architecture from the end of the 18th century when the garden was modified by I. J. Palliardi. The gloriette at the end of the stairway dates back to that time as well.
