All about the trip
Enjoy a nice ride from the city center along the river and outside of Prague. On the way we pass Kunratice forest and go on Greenway (Prague-Vienna) bike path. Biking time is about 2.5 hours including small stops. The ride is mostly flat with one hill on the way (elevation from 190 to 315meters). After we reach small and beautiful medieval castle Pruhonice. It is built on a rocky promontory above the stream Botič, close to the Romanesque manor in which only the Romanesque Chapel of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary is still-standing. The first written report on Průhonice owners dates back to the 1270s.
In Pruhonice town we will have a great lunch break and after we will take a walk and exploree the castle, park and botanical garden. The natural park (the area of 250 hectares) was founded in the year 1885 by the Count Arnošt Emanuel Silva-Tarouca. We will not cover all the areas of the park but we can see and enjoy the result of long and hard work of the Count Arnošt which considered as original masterpiece of garden landscape architecture of worldwide importance. It has artistic and historic significance and also valuable from the dendrological point of view with the collection of about 1600 species of local and exotic plants.
We will return to Prague by train. Our trip ends at the Praha Bike office around 17:00. For the whole trip you will be accompanied with our friendly and very helpful tour guide.
