Mayor Hrib presents covid-safe things to do and visit in Prague during the pandemic
Warmer weather up to 20°C is in the forecast for the Czech Republic in the week leading up to Easter, and the city of Prague has launched a handy online guide to 20 parks and other little-seen locations around the city that are safe to tour during the current lockdown measures.
Current restrictions mandate that a mask is worn while walking around built-up urban areas, which include the streets of Prague, but the Czech capital is also one of the greenest major cities in the world with plenty of parks that can be enjoyed during the upcoming holiday weekend.
Under the banner of Safely around Prague, the city’s guide to safe locations is divided into two areas featuring parks and nature spots around the city, and some of the more quiet areas within the city’s streets.
Parks and nature:
Prague nature and animal reserves
Chuchelský háj grove
Doubravka lookout tower
Rajská zahrada Park
Prokopské & Dalejské údolí natural parks
Note that some facilities in parks, including playgrounds and fitness areas, may be currently closed due to Covid-19 regulations.
On the streets:
Střešovice & Dejvice
Břevnov & Strahov
Karlín plain & Vítkov hill
Vyšehrad Cemetery and Slavín
Bubeneč and Troja villas

This isn’t a complete list of Prague’s hidden gems that can be enjoyed during the current restrictions; the city will be updating the list in the coming weeks with suggestions from the public.

One more tip from Prague Mayor Zdeněk Hřib: the city has also launched an online map of artwork and sculptures in public spaces to enjoy while traveling around Prague. See here: online map
