“An extensive and rugged park on the hill between Vítkov Hill and the Olšany cemeteries. If you climb to the top, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of Prague. At Parukářka Park, you’ll find three children’s playgrounds, and parents can grab a snack at the nearby legendary underground pub or at the original bar with garden in front of the entrance to the bomb shelter, where an 11 m high climbing wall was built in the stairwell. You’ll also find the Cold War Museum here.”
