As part of Prague Castle, the Garden on the Ramparts (Zahrada na Valech) has been protected as a Czech national cultural monument since 1962. The Garden on the Ramparts is a large complex of Prague Castle's southern gardens, which extends from the Rose Garden in the west all the way to the artillery bastion – the Black Tower in the east, at the Opyš hill.

While the publicly-accessible northernmost part of the southern gardens borders on Prague Castle, their southern terraces descend down the steep slope to Malá Strana, where in the east they transition into the Pálffy and Fürstenberg Gardens overlooking the Valdštejnská Street.
The public contract consisted in repairs of low historical walls and walkways in the southern part of the Garden on the Ramparts within the Prague Castle premises. The construction and reconstruction works involved restoration of the round fountain, insulation of the basin with lead padding and installation of new water circulation technology. All the expert works were carried out based on the investor's requirements and under supervision of the Prague Castle Administration and the National Heritage Institute.
