Prague and its gardens
Prague has a lot to offer. The capital of the Czech Republic has numerous gardens or parks. They are both in and also outside the centre. For this reason it has always some peaceful site nearby so that you can escape the noise of the large city or you can take your children or love when you need a break. Some of them, such as Havlíčkovy Sady or the Petřín Park can offer children’ playgrounds. Most of the parks or gardens are being restored (for example the Gardens below the Prague Castle).
These are some tips that can be helpful:
Franciscan Garden (Františkánská zahrada) is located in New Town (Prague 1). The beautiful Franciscan Garden is between Jungmannovo Square, Wenceslas Square, Vodičkova, Palackého streets. So it can be said that it is in the heart of the New Town. This marvellous setting can be found next to the Church of Virgin Mary of the Snows and is an island of peace in the middle of hustling city centre.
Petřín Hill garden
Petřín Hill offers a wonderful view of our capital and there are many attractions for children and for the adults as well. It is located in Lesser Town, Prague 1 and is easily recognizable thanks to the TV tower that is nicknamed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The whole family can enjoy the view from the tower and take part in some activity when up at Petřín.

It is best to visit the Vrtba Garden in the spring or the summer when the trees are in bloom. This garden is a unique complex of large staircases that are adorned with the statues of ancient Roman goddesses and gods. There is the exquisite view of Lesser Town as the garden lies on a steep slope.
