Troja Palace Prague
The suburb of Troja, across the river to the north of Holešovice and Bubeneč, still has a distinctly village feel to it. Its most celebrated sight is Prague’s Baroque chateau & garden. Perfectly situated against a hilly backdrop of vine yards. Troja’s other attraction is the city’s enormously popular zoo area.
It’s also great place to take some couple / family / solo photos

On the other side of U trojského zámku, which runs along the west wall of the chateau, is the city’s capacious zoo (daily: March 9am–5pm; April, May, Sept & Oct 9am–6pm; June–Aug 9am–7pm; Nov–Feb 9am–4pm; 150Kč; Wwww .zoopraha.cz)
