Interesting facts Petrin Gardens Prague

Petřínské sady is said to be the largest green area in the center of Prague. I don't know if that's really the case, it's beautiful here at any time of the year. And this is where the most beautiful views of Prague are. The great thing is that the views can be so different and breathtaking. All the places listed are absolutely unique and definitely worth a visit.

Church of St. Lawrence

Today's picturesque Baroque Church of St. The laurel, which you have from Petřín in the palm of your hand, used to be wooden. It is interesting not only from the outside, but also from the inside.

Chapel of the Holy Sepulcher

This chapel is just a short walk from the Petrin Lookout Tower and the Church of St. Lawrence. The inspiration for the construction was the already standing chapel in Jerusalem. If you're here before three o'clock at Easter, stop for a moment and check out one point of interest. At exactly three o'clock, the sun's rays should pass through the window and fall on the local sacrificial stone, which is located in the middle of the chapel.


Calvary is located a short walk from Petrin Tower, towards the Strahov Monastery. Calvary was built in the eighteenth century and has 14 stops. Also included is the Calvary Chapel, which was designed by Mikoláš Alš.
