Prague Botanical Garden in Troja
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.
Today, you can see there native species of Japanese plants, a collection of irises, or a geographic exhibit of plants from Turkey and Mediterranean. Don’t miss the spectacular Fata Morgana tropical greenhouse, which is open all year round and is unique in Europe. Transport yourself to the Australian bush, southern Africa, or the Mexican desert in the Petrified Forest exposition.
Another highlight of the Botanical Garden is the tour of the historical St. Claire Vineyard, where you can enjoy wine tasting and visit the Baroque St. Claire Chapel.
The greenhouse and outdoor exhibition are open all year round (greenhouse closed on Mondays) from 9 am – 4 pm from November to February, 9am – 5 pm in March and October, 9 am – 6 pm in April and 9 am – 7 pm from May to September. Getting to the Botanical Garden is the same as getting to the Prague Zoo.
