Pruhonice Deer Park

The photo shows a back part of the Pruhonice Gardens, former deer park, a beautiful and quiet valley of the Botic Stream between ponds Labeska and Borin.

The Pruhonice Park was established by Count Ernest Emanuel Silva-Tarouca in 1885. He made use of the diversified valley of the Botic stream and its ponds to reshape monotonous Central-Bohemian agricultural landscape into a park, which, at present, represents a top achievement of nature-landscape style of European importance. The present area of the Park is 250ha, with 40km of roads.
