"Botanická zahrada Troja" Zoo Praha (Prague Zoo) Tip by alancollins

Zoo Praha (Prague Zoo), Prague: 16 reviews and 57 photos

Prague has two botanical gardens, the newest being out at Troja not far from the Zoo. On the day I visited I suddenly spotted another entrance to the botanical gardens about 1 stop before the Zoo Terminus. There was someone a few steps ahead, and like me he was expecting to pay at the kiosk, but it was unmanned and the entrance was open. As I walked up the hill I discovered the reason it was free to get in was due to a wedding taking place in a church located at the top of the hill in the botanical gardens. As few people approach from that direction they had left the entrance open for wedding guests to come and go. The botanical gardens has a large Japanese Garden, vineyards that are out of bounds, spectacular views over Prague and various well laid of gardens. If you feel thirsty do not try coffee from the kiosk in the centre of the gardens. It was the most disgusting coffee I have ever tasted and I threw it away. The second part of the gardens is Fata Morgana which is a glasshouse with tropical plants and butterflies flying around.
