View from Petrin Hill Prague
Dating back to the 14th century, our neighborhood was once covered with vineyards. A short walk from Czech Inn brings you to the heart of this history to a beautiful park still set among the grapevines. The park also has a gazebo restaurant serving the local wine and affording pretty views of Prague. Tip: “vino” is Czech for wine.
A local favourite park and beer garden and a pleasant stroll from Czech Inn. In warm weather, locals gather in the park for picnics and incredible views of the city. On days of good weather (April through October), find the beer garden’s tables packed, serving the world’s best beer, grilled food and showing sports on the big screen.
Meander through this tranquil, baroque-style garden, get to know some peacocks and take a look at the unique “drip wall” at the other end of the garden.
Take the funicular up the hill for picturesque views from Prague’s “Eiffel Tower” or to get lost in the labyrinth! The prime spot for sledding in the winter or a fine place to picnic in summer.
Home of the Giant Metronome, skateboarding teenagers and a sweet beer garden overlooking the Vltava and Prague’s rooftops.
Once the hunting grounds of Rudolf II, great for picnicking, biking and relaxing. Head to this park in Holešovice and experience a less touristy and vibrant part of the city.
Meander through the neighbourhoods to one of Prague’s most beautiful places. Perched upon a hill adjacent to the Vltava River, Vyšehrad is a 10th century fortress with a rich history and impressive 360 views. Within the fort, find the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, the historical cemetery where famous Czechs were laid to rest, plenty of green spaces and a handful of cafes and restaurants including an outdoor grill serving hot and cold drinks.
Ranked as #7 best in the world…so, do as the locals do, go to the zoo!
Prague has two, a less exciting one near Karlovo náměstí and a larger one in Troja, just next to the zoo. Huge greenhouses with butterflies, nature paths and outdoor exhibits.
