"Upscale neighborhood near Prague Castle." Petrin Tip by hundwalder

Petrin, Prague: 39 reviews and 41 photos

  Petrin Hill upscale residential neighborhood
by hundwalder

This photo was shot from the scenic cobblestone footpath leading to Strahov Monastary from Mala Strana. The location was a little uphill from the turnoff to Prague Castle. Many of Prague's wealthy citizens live within the vast greenbelt area on the plateaus below Petrin Hill summit park. Most of the fine houses including those shown in this photo were built during the post communist era, and display much individuality and creativity. The economy continues to improve for Prague and for most of Czechia. Closer views of the houses are afforded from the numerous footpaths bisecting the public greenbelt areas. Mid April is an excellent time to explore Prague when the flowering trees are in bloom, and the wildflowers are plentiful. Excellent chances to relax abound.
