NileGuide Expert tip:
If there's a major game on, Riegrovy Sady's wooden tables fill up fast so be sure to arrive early. There is usually a lull around sunset when daytime pub-goers head home for a dinner and a jacket, just before the nighttime crowd arrives. This is a good time to land a prime game-watching spot.
In a city that isn't heavy on grass, this park offers wide-open spaces, a great view of Prague Castle, a kid's playground, and a massive outdoor pub. Named after a 19th-century Czech politician, Reigrovy Sady was established in the early 1900's as an English-style public garden. There isn't anything particularly English about it, but that's part of its charm. Riegrovy Sady is full of locals on any given day, as long as the weather's nice. Stroll through the greenery and enjoy the view before enjoying a fresh Gambrinus beer and maybe some grilled meat in the pub. There's even a huge screen where sports can often be watched.
