Are you curious how a garden before 100 years looked like? Now you can explore a unique garden next to the National Museum of Agriculture (NZM) in Letna.

In order to commemorate the 100th anniversary from the Declaration of Czechoslovakia, the National Museum of Agriculture prepared this unique exhibition which shows how gardens, flower beds, garden buildings and accessories looked like during the period of the Czechoslovak First Republic (1918-1938).

"The garden and landscape architecture experienced an unprecedented boom in Czechoslovakia in the first half of the 20th century..., finally attaining the world level," said Zdenek Novak, an expert in the history of garden and landscape art and the government coordinator of the Czechoslovak centenary celebrations.

Visitors are also invited to the Museum’s rooftop where they can find other flower beds or a sun clock and enjoy marvelous views at Prague.

In the middle of the garden, there is an old merry-go-round or a see-saw.

The period garden will remain installed in the NZM courtyard for one year at least.
