Garden Performing Art – Development of Garden Art and Introduction of Trees
The exhibition on the ground floor of the Castle (accessible via the entrance from the Inner Courtyard) is primarily intended for visitors who have come to the park not only to relax and enjoy the aesthetic experience, but also to learn something at the same time. The exhibition begins by explaining why the introduction of plants was so important to mankind, gives an historical overview of when trees found their way into Europe, and names the most important tree species. It introduces the most important people and institutions associated with the Průhonice Park. The second part of the exhibition is dedicated to the history of landscaping and garden art.

Botanical Stories – World of Plants From Knowledge to Use
Our botanists have designed the exhibition for visitors of all ages… it’s never too early or too late to learn!
