Prague’s history, culture and beauty captivate both first-time and repeat visitors to her cobblestone streets. From gothic architecture towering over winding streets, and stately music halls ringing with classic composers, to cutting-edge restaurants putting new twists on traditional Czech cuisine, Prague’s exciting surprises are never-ending. But it isn’t all busy streets and bustling shops – for the weary business traveller, Prague has beautiful city-centre parks in which to relax and revive.
There are two large centrally located parks in Prague – Petrin and Letna. Letna is easily reached from Old Town, while Petrin graces the Malá Strana side of the river. In Petrin, you’ll get a good workout climbing the hill, but be rewarded with beautiful views of the city. In spring, enjoy the fruit trees bursting into bloom and in autumn the leaves paint a warm mosaic. Letna stretches along the Vltava across from the Old Town. It’s a lovely place for a stroll, with picturesque views across the river, and there’s a popular beer garden for refreshments.
For a smaller and flatter stroll near Petrin, try Kampa Island, just off the Charles Bridge in Malá Strana. Close by are the stunning Baroque-style gardens of Prague Castle, as well as Vojanovy Sady where visitors share green space with a flock of peacocks. If you want to escape Wenceslas Square, search for the hidden entrance to Františkánská Gardens just off Jungmannovo Square, where you can relax among rose bushes and enjoy an ice cream.
When evening sets in, Prague’s streets welcome you with a rich cultural scene and lively nightlife. Stop for a coffee or chilled beer on Old Town Square, take in an opera or ballet at the National Theatre, or experience one of Prague’s world-class symphonies at the gorgeous art nouveau Municipal House. For a romantic way to experience Charles Bridge, be sure to visit at sunset for a stunning view of Prague Castle being lit up for the night.
After a beautiful day spent in the greenery of Prague, you’ll want to sleep in a place just as green.
