The city of Prague is dotted with enough greenery all around with benches, recreational activities, well-maintained paths to stroll around and lots of other fun filled activities. Not to mention here that young and old alike flock to these parks and gardens to escape from the stressful daily life. Here are some of the best parks and gardens in Prague:
You can take Bus N°112 from the metro station to reach these gardens which abound in butterflies, moths and frogs amidst the wide display of flora. The outdoor section of the gardens includes vineyard, chapel, bonsai, a Japanese Zen garden, greenhouses and wonderful views of the city. A little further up the hill is the Fata Morgana greenhouse exhibiting desert, high sierra and tropical plants.
Standing along the waters of Devil’s stream, the park gives the visitors the pleasure of feeding ducks. There is also a big playground and quite a few cafes in the park.
This is a popular green spot offering stunning views of the city, trails to explore, funfilled activities, the tower, a mirror hall, an 18th century Ukrainian wooden church and of course, lots of exotic greenery.
This was once a favourite hunting spot for Rudolph II. Now this spot is popular for skating, (find rentals along the path to the Planetarium), bicycles, frisbees and footballs. There are several pubs and restaurants at the end near Výstaviště. The art installation section of the park features a larger-than-life lady lying half in the water and a floating deck with perfectly sculpted duck heads.
This is a huge park standing on the top of Vltava. It is a popular spot for biking/skating paths galore, skateboarders, playing fields, tennis courts, kids playground, beer garden and more.
