Time Out says

A quiet garden escape from the crowds of Wenceslas Square

Life slows down when you step into this somewhat secret pathway connecting Wenceslas Square to Jungmannovo náměstí. Surrounded by roses woven through white arches and gates, the air in this carefully manicured square is quieter and the vibe is pure relaxation – these bench-lined paths are made for a slower pace of life. A small children’s playground sits below the Church of the Virgin Mary of the Snow, whose rows of tall, slender windows act as a wall to the outside world. As you casually stroll through the garden (remember, slowly is the mantra around here) playful sculptures dance beside you atop cement columns. Say it with me, ahhhhhh.

Time Out tip:  Grab some ice cream from the Světozor Passage upon entering for perfect excuse to stop and slurp on a park bench. 

Styl & Interier: For a locally loved café and interior design showroom
Palac Lucerna: For a historic hub of culture, sculpture, and hospitality
Nebe: For late-night cocktails and dancing with a well-dressed crowd


Address: Františkánská zahrada, Jungmannovo náměstí, Prague 1, 110 00
