A beautiful quiet sanctuary directly in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the capital – that is what Vojan Park in the Lesser Town offers. It is often referred to as the oldest partly preserved garden in Prague. It was created in the 17th century as part of a Carmelite convent.
You will find the Chapel of St Elijah in the form of a grotto – a dripstone cave, and a small pond there. The park is also adorned by a rose terrace with a sundial providing relaxation and great views. A children’s playground and greenhouse have been restored as well. In addition, the garden is famous for breeding peacocks. The first impression that visitors get here is absolute tranquillity.
Vojan Park is most beautiful in late spring. In addition to blossoming fruit trees, you can further admire magnolias, rhododendrons and sensitively groomed flower beds resplendent with the colours and fragrances of various flowers.
