Prague’s wildlife and landscape provide the living space for a number of species of fauna and flora, and simultaneously they provide a high quality environment for everyday life and recreational activities of the inhabitants as well as visitors. The city parks, historical gardens, woods, tree-lined avenues, areas of special protection, natural parks, and water courses create the unique spirit of the City and also contribute to its exceptional atmosphere. In the city of Prague you can find 88 protected areas of more than 2 200 ha, which cover about four percent of the entire city area. Big natural parks – there are eleven of them within Prague – make up another twenty percent.
