From Náměstí Míru, take tram 4 or 22, get off at Jana Masaryka and walk down Máchova to Rybalkova where you'll find the park's main entrance. You can also get off at Ruská and walk about three blocks west to another one of the park's entrances.

The Grébovka VineyardWhat to Do in Havlíčkovy Sady

The park's most notable landmark is the beautiful Villa Gröbe (Grébovka). This wonderful example of a Neo-Renaissance villa was built as a luxury summer house for industrialist Moritz Gröbe in 1871 - 1888. The house stands majestically in a tastefully landscaped, terraced garden on the top of a slope that's covered with a functioning vineyard. The villa is currently not open to the public but you can visit the grounds and enjoy a sweeping view of Prague from the hill. There's a gazebo on the top of the vineyard where you can sit and have wine.

The park is large and very nicely designed, so it is a pleasure to walk along its many paths. There is also a playground for kids and an attractive, recently restored grotto that is fun to explore.
