Head Back in Time to a Secret Garden. The walk creates both a literal and imaginary bridge between two worlds that, while different, still have much in common.Price from 500 CZK
This walks connects two very different Prague districts and two iconic buildings of Prague's National Gallery: the Functionalist Trade Fair Palace (Veletržní Palác), with the modern art collection, and the ancient Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia, in which the medieval art collection is displayed. From Holešovice, your route takes you through Letná Park to the Metronome, a modern dominant of the left bank of the Vltava and across the bridge to the northernmost end of Old Town. Wind your way through the tiny lanes of this part of the city, which most visitors haven't discovered yet and which will envelop you in the authentic atmosphere of old Prague. Your destination is the newly renovated and recently opened convent gardens and the convent itself.
