If you want to experience an oasis of calm just a bus ride away from the bustling city center, Prague Botanical garden is a great choice. Located in the vicinity of the Prague Zoo, in the Troja basin, Botanical Garden has been growing significantly since its opening.
Prague city, in agreement with the Ministry of Health, reopened the outdoor exhibitions in the Botanical Garden in Troja on Monday. However, people must respect strict sanitary measures. However, all indoor expositions, including the tropical greenhouse Fata Morgana, remain closed.
Open-air expositions cover an area of nearly 25 hectares. Stretching over a large chunk of land, the Botanic Garden includes a Japanese Garden with a gorgeous grove of Japanese Cherry trees, an exhibition of irises, several small ponds, and lakes, and the vineyard of St. Claire.
The central bed of a perennial and annual plant collection is among the most attractive parts of the garden – it blossoms in a variety of colors and shades during the summer months. A valuable collection of bulbous and tuberous plants is also worth seeing. Blooms of crowtoes, crocuses, hyacinths, bluebells and grape hyacinths adorn the garden from early March.
The garden will be open every day from 9:00 to 18:00.
The Prague Botanical Garden warns that all three entrance gates will be opened (from K Pazderkám, Nádvorní and Kovárna public transport stops). According to the municipality, protective disinfection should also be available at the entrance.
The official Facebook profile reminds that people must keep the social distance, and groups of more than two people are banned from entering the space.
The public transport to reach the Botanical Garden is pretty convenient: from Nádraží Holešovice (metro red C line, or tram station) take the Bus No 112 to the last stop and then simply follow the signs (about 5 min on foot).
