Things to do in Prague in Spring
Are you coming to Prague this spring? Let me tell you about the most beautiful blooming places in Prague so you can make the best of your trip. If you are a flower lover like me you will definitely fall in love in Prague in the spring season! Spring in Prague is really special and every year I make time to visit my favourite spots.
1. SUNRISE IN LETNÁ
I know it is not that easy to wake up earlier on your holidays but this is really worth it. To me, one of the most beautiful views of Prague Bridges is right in front of Hanau Pavilion in Letná Gardens. You can go there, of course, any time of the day and still enjoy it but right after the sunrise is the most beautiful light, just have a look at following photos. The best way how to get there is by tram to the station Chotkovy sady.
2. FARMERS’ MARKETS AT JIŘÍHO Z PODĚBRAD SQUARE
There are many farmers’ markets happening in Prague trough the year but my all-time favourite one is the one located at Jiřího z Poděbrad Square in Prague 3, Žižkov district. In Spring it is especially beautiful when the square is blooming. The farmers’ markets are at the square from Wednesday to Friday 8 AM – 6 PM and on Saturday 8 AM – 2 PM from February to December. The easiest way to get there is by metro, green line A to the station Jiřího z Poděbrad.
3. PETŘÍN HILL
Prague spring at its best can be found in Petřín, this is the most famous place where to see the blooming trees and it can get really busy. Therefore it is better to visit right in the morning. You can even walk up the hill and make a nice walk to Prague Castle. The best starting point for exploring this area is by tram stop Újezd.
4. EASTER MARKETS AT NÁMĚSTÍ MÍRU
I am not that big of a fan of Easter markets but I have to admit those at Náměstí míru are really cute. I love the beautiful cathedral surrounded by all cheery colours and all the blooming lilacs around the square. This year will be the markets there opened from 28th of March 2020 until 13th of April 2020. The best way to get there is by metro, green line A to the station Náměstí míru.
5. VOJANOVY SADY
Vojanovy sady (Vojan gardens) can be considered kind of hidden gem, although when is nice weather it can be rather full by locals enjoying the sun in these beautiful gardens. However, most of the visitors of Prague can easily overview the entrance. I absolutely love this garden and I always make my way over there in the springtime. You can find it if you arrive at Malostranská tram station and walk over the street U Lužického semináře, there is this long wall where is the entrance.
6. PRAGUE BOTANICAL GARDEN
Prague botanical garden is not so easily reachable like other spots but if you are staying in Prague longer and if you love all things botanical I really recommend the visit. It is so beautiful over there and you can easily spend there several hours discovering it. My favourites are Peony Medow and the Japanese Garden! Find more information on the official web here.
If you search for a place for a nice walk, then Vyšehrad is the right place, it has everything from beer gardens, views of the river, cathedral and in springtime, you can enjoy majestic chestnut trees and lilacs in full bloom! In the past, I dedicated Vyšehrad blog post which you can read over here.
The largest park in Prague is Stromovka and I absolutely love it. I was living nearby for almost 4 years so you can imagine how much time I have spent there. Spring and autumn are the best over there! You can get there by tram from the centre, the tram stop is called Výstaviště Holešovice.
9. THE SOUTH GARDENS OF PRAGUE CASTLE
The South Gardens can easily be reached by going to Prague Castle from Malostranská tram station and admission to the gardens is free. You can enjoy some really wonderful views of Prague.
10. PRŮHONICE PARK
This park is not really in Prague, but it is really easy to get there – by metro C to Opatov station and then by bus number 363 or 385 to Průhonice. Admission costs 80 CZK (approx. 3 Eur) and you will need about 3 hours of time to walk the main sightseeing circuit (this circuit is 5 km).
11. PARK BY NATIONAL MUSEUM
National Musem was quite long closed due to the reconstruction but it has been reopened last year. I was very stunned by the renovated park next to the Museum as in the past was this part not pretty at all.
