Prague is lucky enough to have two botanical gardens (Botanicka zahrada), one on Nadvorni and one at Na slupi 8, beside the Prague zoo. The garden on Nadvorni features a relaxing Japanese garden, while the Na slupi location was Prague's first botanical garden, founded in the l4th century by Charles IV. Be sure to catch the giant water lily, Victoria cruziana, whose huge leaves can support a small child - always a good threat for misbehaving children. Both gardens feature greenhouses and a variety of greenery (and colourful flowers) that make their residence there year-round.
