“We have expanded the relaxation area for visitors to Petřín. Now, they can relax in Květnice Garden in a unique environment with the scenery of the Baroque city walls,” Petr Hlubuček, Deputy Mayor of Prague, says.
The perennial garden Květnice was established between the years 1935 and 1937 as part of the Rose Orchard. It is a relatively small enclosed area adjacent to the city walls of the Baroque fortifications. Květnice is unique among the gardens of Prague in its concept and in a rich collection of over a hundred various species of woody plants and perennials.
As part of the repairs, the former warehouse was destroyed and weeds were removed. The underground spaces were thoroughly cleaned and repaired, including the supporting of external walls and entrance arches. The garden area was complemented by staircases, retaining walls and built-in benches for the comfort of visitors.
