The place retained its original intimate character. Originally it was part of a fruit garden owned by the Bishop residence which was founded in the 13th century. Emperor Ferdinand III founded a monastery here which became home to female members of Carmelite order.
Later the garden had been maintained by the Order of English Virgins and in 20th century it was transferred into the hands of the Finance Ministry. The Garden was opened to the public and named after Czech actor Eduard Vojan in 1954.
It is hard to believe that such a quiet oasis could be so close a very busy metro and tram stop. As I continued strolling through the park I noticed many different types of trees as apple and pear and nut woods, roses and flowers in bloom.
Vojan's Garden is quite famous for housing a big family of peacocks. Unfortunately when I came these majestic birds decided not put on display their sunning feather tails, some peahens walked with their babies along the paths.
In addition to the wonderful flora I also admired some modern sculptures, an 18th century sundial, a small chapel in the center of the park.
