The garden can be reached by bus line 61 (for example, stop Křídlovická - next to Ronda). You have to go out at the KAMENICE stop !!!

Or by bus line 40 (direction University campus - north), or line 69. Another option is to arrive by car, if you choose this option, take a look at the search engine ( how to get there. Ideal is to arrive from campus and park over the stairs to the garden. The garden itself is in the forbidden entrance.
