Prague, Czechia

Vojan Gardens

The oldest garden in Prague, once part of an medieval orchard. 

This is considered the oldest garden in Prague and one of the oldest orchards in Europe. Once part of an orchard established in 1248, it was later enclosed by a monastery. It was opened to the public in 1954.

It houses numerous apple, pear, plum, and other fruit trees as well as bee hives and flower gardens. There are also two surviving chapels in the park, one of which takes the form of a cave.
