Visit the garden studio of Josef Sudek and continue on with an idyllic stroll to Petřín or have a ride in the cableway. Laugh at yourself and others in the mirror maze and explore the exhibition at the National Gallery. Quench your thirst and hunger at Kuchyň, the restaurant at the Salmovský Palace with a breathtaking view of Prague..

The Studio of Josef Sudek
Josef Sudek lived and worked in the photographic garden studio for 32 years. The Gallery, which is superintended by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, regularly showcases works which directly relate to Sudek’s creations or present the works of his students..

You’ll reach the top of the hill on foot, through the alleys between the gardens or by taking a ride on the cablecar. Right at the stop at the foot of the hill lies a wonderful children’s playground. At Petřín we recommend a visit to the mirror maze or to the tower itself. The tower was built as a part of the Jubilee Exposition in 1891 as a free copy of the Parisian Eiffel Tower (to which it is scaled 1:5), it measures 63,5 meters (208 feet) in height and its peak stands at the same point above sea level as the actual Eiffel Tower.

National Gallery Prague
You only have until the end of the year to visit the exhibition titled Art from the Rudolfine Era to the Baroque in Bohemia in the Schwarzenberg Palace at Hradčanské Square. If you’d rather make something yourself, check out the Gallery’s Facebook page - it features artistic studios and programs for children and adults alike.

In the restaurant in the Salmovský Palace of the National Gallery Prague, Head chef Marek Janouch prepares Czech dishes. He urges you to engage your sight, smell and taste. Raise the lid of the pots on the stove, inhale and have a look for yourself at what is cooking. Kuchyň serves lunches and dinners of multiple courses along with a daily special. This goes hand in hand with carefully treated Pilsner beer - and the whole of Prague is at your feet.

The routes are prepared in collaboration with Prague City Tourism.

Try out Kuchyň.
