Franciscan Garden

Nestled secretly in a hidden courtyard between Jungmannovo and Wenceslas Square, the Franciscan Garden, a true oasis, is the perfect place to escape the overwhelming crowds in Prague. You can get to the garden through an entrance from Jungmannovo náměstí, through the Alfa passage leading from Wenceslas Square or the Světozor passage leading from Vodičkova street (both passages join in front of the gate to the garden). The garden dates back to the 14th century and was restored in the early 1990s. It sits by the lovely Church of Our Lady of the Snows, a worthy sight as well. The garden features numerous benches, a small playground for children with a sandbox, leafy trees, trellises, a cute little gift shop in the center of the garden selling unique jewelry and clothing, and during the season, beautiful climbing roses and bushes. The Franciscan Garden is an enjoyable place to relax with an ice cream cone and do some Prague people watching. The garden is open all year long and closes only for the night.

Between Jungmannovo Square and Wenceslas Square, through the Svetozor or Alfa passage, Praha 1.
