This unique natural oasis in the city center is furnished with a number of benches, over which span metal arches laden with roses in the summer. Lawn areas are separated by low yew hedges, and the garden is completed with several interesting sculptures, fountains, a gazebo, a playground, fruit trees and herb beds, which harken back to the former owners, the Carmelites and the Franciscans, who once grew herbs and spices here.

Petrin Park History & Photography Places
The name Petrin – Petřínská rozhledna (Petrin Tower) the hill know as Petřín used to have different names in the past. First it was called Hora (Mountain), Kopec (Hill) or St. Lawrence Hill according to the church on its top. The name Petřín was derived from the mountainous surface of the hill. There used to be so-called Petřín quarries and due to the many rocks (“petrae” in Latin) it was later called Petřín.
Roman Quarries at Petrin Shaped the Buildings of Prague
The first quarries started to occur in the Petřín territory In the Romanesque period. The stone called opuka (aranaceous marlstone) was later used as building material for a great number of Prague houses. Before opuka started to be mined here Petřín had been completely covered by trees.
Dark side Of Petrin
There used to be a significant gallows close to the the present St. Lawrence Church in the past. Not just common criminals were executed here but even people convicted for political reasons. When the representatives of the Přemyslid dynasty massacred the Slavníkovec family in Libice in 995, they slaughtered some of them right on the Petřín gallows. After the Hunger Wall had been built in the Gothic period this place of execution was cancelled. The executions took place behind the town fortifications or on Šibeniční vrch (Gallows Hill).
When the Hunger Wall was finished based on the command of Charles IV some handicraftsmen had to move to its neighbourhood. These handicrafts were basically very disturbing for other people – blacksmiths, kettlesmith, coopers and many more. During this period extensive vineyards were founded on Petřín.

It is always such a pleasure to be commissioned for maternity photography. I specialise in creating beautiful, light-filled maternity photos in natural, historical, outdoor environments throughout Prague (although frequently clients travel to Prague and they wanted to take place at somewhere else such as national parks). I also cover parts of Brno, Berlin and Pilsen Heath is locations for pregnancy portraits. My aim is to create beautiful, natural portraits of you during this important time. You can see my photography portfolio here.
My style of maternity/pregnancy photography
My style is very soft and feminine, making the most of beautiful natural light to create natural portraits alone or as a couple. I will help you as to where and how to stand so that you look your best, in the prettiest light. I also love to include your partner and any older children in the photos too – and dogs have been known to be part of the photoshoot.
When to book your maternity photography session
I generally recommend booking your pregnancy photoshoot to take place around the 30-34 week mark, or a little later if you have a smaller bump! Please note that maternity tends to be my most popular type of portrait photography and weekends in particular tend to get booked up at least a month in advance, or longer in the summer months.
What to wear for your pregnancy photoshoot
Obviously it is entirely up to you and your personal style as to what to wear for your maternity photos; the most important thing is that you feel comfortable! However, soft, floaty and feminine clothing in neutral colours or pastels photographs very well and will show off your growing belly beautifully. That sort of clothing also fits very well with my feminine style of maternity photography. For example, this might be a flowing dress or a simple tank top with a long skirt. I love to help my clients plan their outfits for their sessions and will give you as much input as you like!
I do not provide props for your maternity photoshoot, but many clients do bring something sweet and meaningful to be included in some of the photos, such as tiny baby shoes.
