The Průhonice Park is one of the most important landscape parks of the Czech Republic
. It is located close to the Průhonice Castle, near the country's capital - Prague
. In August 2010, the Průhonice Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, as a part of the Prague Conservation Area.
The Průhonice Park was founded by Count Ernst Emanuel Silva-Taroucca in 1885. He had been creating it until his death in 1936. The open space layout is typical for this park. The ponds, streams and meadows are surrounded by groups of trees, shrubs and other wood species.
The Unique Park and its Riches
The total area of the park is 250 ha, and the total length of the park trails is around 23 km. The Průhonice Park is of art-historical importance, at the same time it has a great dendrological value. One of the best known cultivated plants are rhododendrons. There is an alpinium with rocks and hillsides with many alpine plants, perennials and wood species. The alpinium covers an area of 3 ha. The Průhonice Park is opened to the public every day, all year round. It is the most attractive in spring and in autumn, yet in other months it can still offer lots of beauties.
The Průhonice Castle
The adjacent castle is not accessible to the public. Only the permanent exhibition called "The Průhonice Castle and Park, the Work of Nature and Human Intellect" introducing the history of the castle and of the park is accessible to the public. There is a botanical garden next to the park.
