Rieger Gardens is a city park in the Vinohrady district of Prague. With its area of about 11 hectares of green space, it is a perfect place for relaxation. The hundred-year-old park, named after Czech politician František Ladislav Rieger, was created in 1902 by joining several neighbouring gardens and settlements. Some of them, mainly small buildings, have been preserved – for example, the late Classicist lookout tower “Mlíkárna” with a terrace view, which is currently used as a café. There are three main paths to the park – from Polská Street up the large staircase, past the Myslbek’s statue of Rieger; from Chopin Street and from Vozová Street through the stone gate. In Rieger Gardens, visitors can visit a nice covered outside seating with a large projection screen (for watching sports) and taste several kinds of beer. Visitors can also rent a grill.
