Fed up with Karlův most and Staroměstská náměstí? Take the 22 tram out here....it's quiet, idyllic, you can stroll around in the gardens, take in the architecture: there's a little gallery (only open Thursdays and weekends) and a lovely little cafe/restaurant with it's own pivovar where you eat and drink exceptionally well for very little. Don't miss it!

Went on the advice of a local. Were too late to admire the scenery; went straight for the main event. Tasty and hearty meal of roast duck breast (a Czech specialty) with two kinds of cabbage and two kinds of bread dumplings (how many kinds can there be?! Lots, it turns out). Liver pate, mushroom soup, and baguette all also... More

It is far from the center, however you can also have a walk in nearby Obora Hvezda parc. And from Strahov monastery it is just 5 tramstops away. Anyway... More

I went there as a beer geek and homebrewer to taste abbey beer. On their website it said it was open until 17:00 and they offered barrel-aged imperial stout. We were there around 16:00 and it was closed. You couldn`t buy any beer and in the `local` restaurant they served.... macrolagers plus only two beers from the abbey, which were... More

The Brevnov Monastery is quite far from city centre of Prague. However, there is no mass of tourists. You can enjoy a pleasant walk in its garden. If you love wildlife. Birds and squirrels can be found here. I even saw a woodpecker here (I'm not an Ornithologist. I don't know whether this is common in Czech or Europe. But... More

To previous orator can add that it's nice quite place - park for strolling and thinking and church which is more beautiful inside (pretty nice decorated ceiling with clock)! It's not outside Prague, but still tram line 22 (stop Brevnov Monastery) - I still live very close to this place))).
