A botanical garden might be not that everyone is keen on, but this time, you should make your plans and come here. This is not ordinary botanical garden, where only flower beds and pathways are present. Here you can spent a whole day and relax. In the upper parts it is more like a wild nature with exception on a... More

If you want to spend time outside in winter this is a great place. Easy access by Metro to Holesovice and then by bus 112. We got off at second last stop to walk up the vineyard, on a morning with fresh snow cover the views were magical. Walk through gardens is still great even in winter, and then we... More

Very poor compared to our botanic gardens and the poor birds kept in far too small cages just finished me off. The only nice thing was the lily pond but on the whole not worth the bother.

A car would be handy if you are a visitor to Prague but then where do you put it? I took the train and then a local bus. It wasn't difficult and didn't take long. On the day I went, Prague was suffering a heatwave and temperatures were in the high 30s so getting up the hill to the gardens... More

Despite the earlier reviews this place is awesome. The place is also huge. Easily able to spend all day here. From the organized gardens, to the forests and lawn, the vineyard and the many places just to set and rest. Take a picnic and you can make the day, or buy something from one of the vendors there.

The gardens are nice but because of the recent flooding the outside area dosent look too good there are a few dead plants. However the greenhouse looks really nice, with loads of great plants but like all things in this country not too big. And like most things in this country it was not clearly labeled, so it took us...

The botanical gardens proved to be a huge disappointment and a total waste of time when we visited them on a late afternoon in September. First of all – the place was deserted, and I don't mean almost empty – but TOTALLY deserted, like a ghost town. Secondly, the trees and flowers were very average looking and the place looked... More

If you had only one day in Prague, whether you were coming from near or far, the Botanical Gardens may not make it onto your list of things you must see. Still, each year we are surprised by those who visit us here, that the praises for this part of Prague are being sung. Thus, our advise is to do... More

In winter, all the flowers were dead outside. You can only see the plants and flowers inside the greenhouse. I guess the best time to visit this place is in summer.
