Franciscan Garden (Františkánská zahrada) is a beautiful hidden gem in the city center. This garden was originally larger in size and used by a nearby monastery to grow herbs and vegetables. Today, you'll discover a beautifully landscaped park. Stop by to smell the flowers and enjoy a tranquil moment in the city.
The Letná Park is a huge park that overlooks Old Town. It is instantly recognizable by the high red reverse pendulum (Metronome), which can be seen from a distance. Until 1956, a statue of Stalin occupied this place, but times have changed and it is long gone. The view of Old Town and the Moldau from here is lovely, and one can follow footpaths along the river back to Prague Castle.
Located close to Charles Bridge, Vojanovy Sady is a picturesque park that is the ideal spot to enjoy a sunny afternoon. Originally an orchard, there are still fruit trees among the park's lovely greenery. Keep an eye out for peacocks who often call this park home. Vojanovy Sady is mostly walled in, so many tourists pass by this amazing hidden gem without even knowing it.
The Garden on the Ramparts (Zahrada Na Valech) is a part of the Royal Castle complex, located to the south side of the castle grounds. It underwent some major changes between the 1920s and 1930s under the watchful eye of the famed architect Jože Plečnik, but was closed to the public soon after. Today, one can easily visit the garden and stroll among the beautiful landscaped grounds and enjoy the stunning views of Lesser Town (Malá Strana).
Riegrovy Sady Park is a short 10 minute walk up the hill from the main train station. This park is the perfect place to watch the sun set behind Prague Castle with a bottle of wine and good company. The park is big enough that you won't hear the sounds of the city once you make your way into its depths. Aside from the spectacular view of the center, this dog-friendly park sports a café, restaurant and a beer garden for all your refreshment needs.
