    We went a few minute before they opened and were the only ones there. We had the garden all to ourselves for about 30 minutes. My only complaint is that they had the gardener trimming the bushes during our visit. Couldn’t they have done this maintenance before 10AM? Who wants to be in a beautiful garden with the sound of hedge trimmers and leaf blowers? Poor management, hence the 4 star review. Avoid a hot day here… you will not enjoy it. This place can be hard to find as it is not at the edge of the street. You need to go through a garage arch until you see the entrance to it. The garden is not visible from the street.

    This street goes through the Jewish district connecting Old Town Square with Cechuv Bridge.

    The street is lined with historic townhouses with beautiful Art Nouveau facades.

    This street is also known for its luxury shops representing the world’s most prominent fashion brands.

    Vida has a wonderful personality, and she blends her impressive knowledge with her wonderful humor. We throughly enjoyed our tour with her, and appreciated both the personal anecdotes combined with the impressive history and facts she shared with us.

    She is truly an accomplished author and tour guide, and we highly recommend her!

    The casemates can be visited only in a guided tour. The visit consists in watching an informative video and then a not very long walk through some dark galleries, where there is nothing to see. At the end you'll visit Gorlice hall, the highlight of the tour. The entrance is at Cihelna Brana.

    Karlovo Namesti is a park in the Podskalí area of Prague, just south of the centre. It’s a nice park area that's bisected by Resslova, so it almost feels like two separate parks. The park is well tended with lots of grass and well paved walking pathways and there’s also a children's play area. One of the attractions of visiting this park is the many fine monument to Czech personalities who have made contributions to society such as Benedikt Roezl, Jan Evangelista Purkyne and Karoliny SvEtle etc.

    The park is a little far from the main tourist circuit of Prague, but I walk here because it’s actually between the centre prague and the monumental Vyšehrad area in the south of the city.

    Worth the walk if you have the time.

    Pretty buildings all around, like the Bohemian Eagle house and the statue of Il Commendatore around the corner. There is also an entrance here to the Myslbek shopping centre.

    I love nothing better than jumping the tram or metro down to Namesti Miru in the Vinohrady District .
    This square is superb,it's dominated by the wonderful looking Church Of St Ludmily a great example of Gothic architecture at it's best,set in the beautiful little park area the church is so photogenic ,there's a lovely little statue here known as Peace Statue which is very appropriate as Namesti Miru translates as Peace Square ,all around this square are lots of pubs,bars,cafés and restaurants ,my twin brother Stephen and I visited several of these establishments ,the best in my opinion are Prague Beer Museum ( great beer selection ) Parlament ( traditional Czech beer and meals ) and Bruxx ( Belgium restaurant and pub ) , if you're planning a trip to Prague I highly recommend you check out Namesti Miru.

    I love nothing better than jumping the tram or metro down to the wonderful and eclectic Zizkov District of Prague ,so many great pubs,bars and restaurants to visit and the architecture is cool ,emerging from the metro station Jiriho Z Podebrad brings you out onto Jiriho Z Podebrad Square ,a really fantastic oasis of greenery that's always well worth visiting.
    This square is home to Kostel Nejsvetejsiho Srdce Pane ,a really modern and beautiful church,one of the landmark buildings in the Zizkov District ,the square is surrounded by beautiful buildings and there's lots of pubs,bars and restaurants to visit ,in the summer this square is a great picnic area ,a big expance of park land to enjoy ,all in all it's a great square to visit if you're planning on visiting the Zizkov District.

    Over the many years of travelling to Prague I've stayed in many of it's districts but for me now I will stay in no other district than Praha 5 namely Smichov.
    Smichov is located on the West Bank of the Vltava River ,in days gone by this area was dominated by the famous Ringhoffer Factory which employed over 30.000 employees in the production of railway carriages,cars and trucks throughout the world ,after the factory moved to Zličín in the 1990's the old factory buildings were demolished ,nowadays the area is so vibrant,reinvented itself ,shiny modern shopping malls,new hotels,pubs,bars and restaurants ,it's home to the amazing and huge Staropramen Brewery which is cool to visit,I love it here ,day and night it's a bouncing area ,so vibrant some of my favourite pubs and bars are located here ,loved our latest visit here had a great time ,if you're planning a trip to Prague it's a district I highly recommend you check out.
