The Prague Botanic Gardens


When I've been to Prague I decided to see the Botanical Garden. It's an oasis of peace and tranquility. There are greenhouses, open-air expositions with various gardens, and a vast territory with vineyards.
Open expositions occupy a huge area. I walked along a beautiful stony trail watching the plants of the Mediterranean basin and Turkey. Then I came to the section of North American semi-desert plants.





The garden is located on a hill and many paths go up and down the hill. It reveals beautiful views of the Botanical garden landscape and plants.




The tropical greenhouse Fata Morgana is located in the southern side of the Botanical garden. The greenhouse covers more than one 1700 meters, there is a unique botanic exposition.
The largest part is occupied by wet tropical rain forests with beautiful orchids, water plants, palms. I loved to be there: orchids, warm air, water and fishes in the pool.






The other sections of the Conservatory are dedicated to flora typical for mountain territories, tropical and subtropical plants of America, Asia and Africa, the Australian bush and Madagascar.






In the park I found a gazebo on a hill and after sitting in a shade and having tasty lunch in a restaurant I continued along the paths up and down the park. 



Then I went up to the Japanese garden. I like to see Japanese gardens in every Botanical garden I visit :-) I imagined how wonderful this one looks in spring with a murmuring stream between stones, maples and blooming rhododendrons.







Flowers, shrubs, conifers grew along the paths. I liked the corner of the garden where conifers and plants with different foliage were combined.
It's all for now. If you're interested in Vojanovy sady in Prague, visihere.

  2. Every time someone I know visits Prague they return to tell me what a beautiful city it is, but no on so far has mentioned the botanical gardens so you are adding one more star to the rating, Nadezda.

  5. That is a beautiful botanic gardens. I think it's nice when gardens are built on hillsides, so many opportunities for interesting perspectives and layouts. I had not known there were even botanic gardens in Prague so if I ever go there it will be a must see for me.

    1. Jenny, for me as a gardener, botanical gardens are always interesting everywhere. When I saw this on a map of Prague, I quickly decided to go there and found out the route from my hotel.

    Did the invitation come? I have been preparing the list of readers but instead of saving it, some invitations were already sent, even though the list is not ready yet. Such a confusion... :D
