Průhonice Park and Chateau

Průhonice Park offers visitors a wealth of natural beauty. Stretching to the south of Průhonice Chateau in the Botiče Valley, the park features over 1500 indigenous and exotic tree species. Visitors will find numerous quiet retreats, waterfalls, rocks and meadows with wonderful views of the landscape, chateau and 8000 rhododendron bushes. With over 20 kilometres of footpaths and trails running through the park, each walk can be unique. The northern section of the park near the chateau is formal in character; the southern section serves as a game reserve. The park also features two ponds – Labeška and Bořín, whose “S” shape resembles a meandering river. The chateau today serves as the headquarters of the Botanical Institute and also offers visitors exhibits on the history of Průhonice Park.
