The dignity of the place is further enhanced by some very royal looking peacocks that occasionally use their royal prerogative to break the solemnity by their somewhat crude attention seeking shrieks. Don’t let that put you off; this is a place of serious contemplation; you come here to read a book, to find a quiet retreat far from city’s hustle and bustle, or enjoy the solaced delights of a quietly tucked away bench, by the lake maybe, shaded by full-grown trees and ponder on sense of inner being.
Vojanovy sady (Vojan Park)
Vojan Park has probably retained a slightly melancholic echo from its long gone inception in the somewhat sombre middle ages when it was founded as a monastic garden. It was designed to have a formal and strictly geometric layout, an aspect that time has hardly interfered with, except for a few light touches in the style in some parts of the garden in the 1920s.
