Prague has many beautiful sites and parks around the metropolis. We’ve compiled a list of those that might be of interest to those trying to avoid the crowds.
Riegrovy Sady is awesome, but maybe you want some more peace? Here is the list.
Vojanovy sady is a small park and garden located behind the building of the Ministry of Finance in Mala Strana. This garden-park offers walkers beautiful greenery and lush flowers in spring. Peacocks even hide in this area, so be careful! Dogs are not allowed here for this reason.
Na Cibulce park looks more like a forest than a park, and it’s one of the biggest. So, get ready to explore and see a lot! It is located in Prague 5, and the area is quite majestic. There is an old abandoned watchtower on top of a small hill.
If you descend a staircase from the base of the tower, you can sit on one of the benches and admire the view of the watchtower from a lower vantage point. There is also a quaint and lonely statue right in front of the benches. Some people said it was a statue of Chronos, among others.
If you want to explore a little more, a short walk through the park will take you to a quaint little pond next to a small bridge. Beyond Cibulce is a natural park, so it really is the perfect place to spend a whole day walking and enjoying the outdoors in the springtime.
Ladronka is the ideal park for proactive people who want to enjoy and participate in a sport during this spring season. You probably can’t enjoy the beach volleyball and soccer field yet, but you can still take a walk there.
Ladronka is also popular with inline skaters who want to enjoy the 4.2 km circuit. Need a boost of energy – maybe a snack? There is a delicious restaurant called Ladronka Estate on the grounds of the park.
Kuličkové hřiště is a unique playground in Prague 6. Its main attraction is a colorful artificial “mini-hill” on which families and children can play. There is even a small tunnel running through the play area, which toddlers can use as a passage. Definitely worth a visit, especially on a sunny spring day for families.
Max van der Stoel is a park in Prague 1-Hradčany, with a small picturesque pond, greenery and a mini-forest. The central focal point of the park is a long linear water feature which is interactive and a real delight for the little ones. Kids can also enjoy balance blocks, a rope pyramid, or a barefoot trail. This park is located on the tram line at Hládkov station.
To be one of the most idyllic parks in Prague, Stromovka is not as crowded. That’s probably because it’s a bit off-road, at least by city park standards. Stromovka is neighbor to Prague Zoo and Troya Castle and Gardens in Prague 7.
The park is huge and beautiful, so there are many ways to get there. Stromovka offers views, ponds, greenery, a lush promenade, children’s toys and even ice rinks. There is also a huge villa located in the center of the park. You can definitely take a look.
