The most popular destinations for daily trips are the castles of Karlštejn and Konopiště, both surrounded by beautiful wooded countryside. Alternatively you can head north, away from the hills and the tourist crowds, to the wine town of Mělník, perched high above the confluence of the Vltava and Labe (Elbe) rivers. Further north is Terezín, the wartime Jewish ghetto that is a living testament to the Holocaust. One of the most popular day-trips is to the medieval silver-mining (area) town of Kutná Hora, 60km to the east of Prague, which boasts a glorious Gothic cathedral and a macabre ossuary. Also another beautiful place is Český Krumlov where you can have daily expedition.
Many of you may have no idea that this park in Holešovice has its own reasons to celebrate another “fateful eight” year. The park dates back to 1268, founded by king Přemysl Otakar II to please himself and his Royal Court with a hunting-ground, and above it, a small Summer Palace. 750 years …
That’ quite a bit of history. But let’s begin at the beginning. The Royal hunting-ground’s heyday was during the Hapsburg dynasty in the 16th and early 17th century. Emperor Ferdinand I expanded it in 1536-1548 and joined it through to Prague Castle. A pond was excavated, new trees planted, and a pheasant farm and hunting lodge built, later followed-up with a fruit garden. At the western edge, an Imperial mill sprang up, with a late-Renaissance gate, there to this day. Under Emperor Rudolph II the old Summer Palace got a Renaissance facelift and the original pond was generously enlarged to 21 hectares (52 acres). An island was raised in the middle, its remnant today dubbed Oak hillock – a central rise with ancient oak trees. The large pond was fed from Rudolph’s water tunnel – a technical feature remarkable in its day, still in service. It brought water from the Vltava River a hundred meters away (from near today’s Štefánik Bridge) through Letná hill; the entrance has a fine Renaissance portal inscribed with 1583 and the monogram of Rudolf II. A less happy era for the Royal hunting-ground came in the 17th and 18th century, when numerous military conflicts left their destructive mark – it was picked as an ideal military encampment site, more than once.

The bridge connects the Prague districts Holešovice and the Old Town (Staré Město). Construction materials are stone (pillars) and iron (arches). Up to 1961 the roadway was made of wood – a hard species named Jarrah from Australia. The roadway got very slippery during rains.
Bridge architects were Jan Koula and Jiří Soukup. Art Nouveau style sculptures (including four put on 17.5-m-high pylons) were created by sculptors Klusáček, Wurzel, Popp and Amort.
Upside-Down Statue of King Wenceslas Riding a Dead Horse
New Town, Wenceslas Square, Lucerna arcade; polystyrene statue by David Černý was originally created for the installation in the court of the Main Post Office in Jindřišská Street as a part of Exhibition CZ 99. In 2000 it was installed in the passage Lucerna.
St Wenceslas sits on the stomach of the horse, turned with his head downwards (equestrian statue), he has tied legs, reminiscent of a captured animal.
Many hotels set their prices depending on the koruna’s market rate against the euro, so prices change frequently.
Czech hotel reception attendants have little interest in haggling over room rates. Usually they don’t have authorization to veer away from the listed rates, and few have been instructed to jiggle the price in order to make a sale. However, times are changing as occupancy rates fluctuate and competition increases. Your best chance for getting a better rate is calling in advance and getting a very senior manager (preferably the owner) to book your room. Be clear that you’re looking at other proper- ties and don’t be afraid to say that price does matter.
Check with a few other places first before making a final decision. In each case, ask how many rooms they still have available for the night. If it sounds as though there are plenty of rooms around town, you’re in a great negotiating position. Then find the manager at the place you want and push him or her for a lower rate. You can also seek a higher discount for a longer stay.
