Parks & nature in Prague

Bridge
“The most famous bridge in Czech Republic with very rich history. Some tourist attractions are located on the bridge during your walking (e. g. picture painting of your face). In the morning is the best time you can visit :) Breathtaking view to Prague´s castle as well.”

Building
“Dancing House (Tančící dům) is set in a fine location by the Vltava River in Prague. Its design is unique, and especially striking in the city centre because it is a modern building surrounded by historic architecture. Dancing House was constructed between 1992-1996. It has daring, curvy outlines, which led its architects Vlado Milunc and the American Frank Owen Gehry to initially name it the "Fred and Ginger Building", after the legendary dance duo. The top floor of Dancing House is the only part of the building open to the public, and is home to one of the city's leading restaurants.”

Castle
“In the 10th century, 70 years after the establishment of Prague Castle, a church and fortified trading post were built on a cliff top overlooking the Vltava River, on the heights of Vysehrad. Although not much remains of the castle today, Vysehrad Park none-the-less makes a pleasant excursion out of the hustle and bustle of Prague's city centre. ”

Park
“The park is relaxed and has a path that winds through it. There are many trees and shady areas to sit under and there are typically a few runners and dog walkers. In the park there is a cafe, a pavilion near the villa and a historical vineyard gazebo, all perfect places to get a coffee or a glass of wine. ”

Park
“Kampa is an island on the Vltava River in Prague's Lesser Quarter, from which it is separated by the Čertovka mill. The area of the island is 5.2 ha. The earliest mention of Kampa Island is in the foundation charter of the Hospitaller Church of St. John of 1169. The island's present appearance was modified by the terrain and the Čertovka riverbed.”

Garden
“As mentioned above, Franciscan Garden is a great connector between Jungmannovo and Wenceslas Square, which is a good enough reason to come here. The garden is not very large and it is mainly designed for relaxation. You can sit on one of its many benches, eat ice cream that you bought in the adjoining Pasáž Světozor and watch people. There is also a small children's playground with a sand box and swings. ”

Zoo
“A romantic valley in the northwest of the capital city is among the most rugged and picturesque areas within Prague and genuinely lets you forget you are – actually – still in Prague. Its territory is considered unique nationwide, from a geological, archaeological, botanical and zoological point of view. It is a landscape of steep rocks, upland plateaux, grove, meadow, and grassland habitats, dramatically sculpted by the Šárecký brook. Marked trails traverse the valley, but a good pair of walking shoes isa must as the paths are not paved.”
