Františkánská Garden is an unexpected place, that you can find in the middle of Prague, only few meters from Wenceslas Square. The garden is not big, but very peaceful. There are benches, where you can sit and relax - out of the city rush. There...More

Just off the hustle and bustle of Wenceslas Square, is the Franciscan Garden with nice trees and green grassy areas. It’s a charming garden where you can sit amidst the greenery and enjoy the scenery. There is an excellent view from here of the Church...More

Perhaps I happened upon the Franciscan Garden at the wrong time of day or in the wrong season, but I was a little disappointed by what I found. It is tucked beside the never-completed Church of Our Lady of the Snows, an awkward, stubby structure....More

A nice break from the hustle and bustle. Small, but very pretty with a play area too. A hang-out for wasps (due to the vines and fallen grapes) but they’re pretty dopey and not at all aggressive. Worth a detour or incorporating into a route...More

Discovered this lovely garden when the staff at our hotel on Jungmannovo Square gave us short-cut directions to Wenceslas Square. Late November, obviously, is not the best time to visit, but were still able to appreciate the tranquility in the centre of a large city....More

How wonderful to find these sanctuaries beyond the tourist scrums. And one with such internal views. The way in takes you past the cubist lamp post and once in there are interesting views not only of the garden but of the buildings beyond. A lovely...More

I always make it a point to walk through this garden, such a beautiful shortcut from the Wenceslas square to the Jungmanovo Square. Well kept garden, gorgeous in every season. Surprisingly it never seems crowded and we are very happy about that. When the roses...More

I was in Prague on a busy Sunday afternoon and this garden was just a little oasis. I grabbed some Chlebicky from around the corner and then came here to sit under the rose arches and amongst the apple trees to enjoy my lunch. There...More

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
