Smíchov is a relatively large district in Prague (approx. 7 km²) with 36,000 inhabitants. It is located between Malá Strana, Hlubočepy and Radlice, spreading east along the Plzeňská street towards the border with Motol.
In one part you will find beautiful villas that represent perfect housing in luxury, with breathtaking views of Prague – these include the villa neighborhoods of Hřebenky, Malvazinky and Dívčí hrady.
The beautiful parks of Smíchov
This district is not particularly rich in greenery but it includes the Kinsky Garden, which leads up to the Prague Castle and is followed up by Petřínské sady. When you head from the Nový Smíchov mall towards Malvazinky, you will encounter the beautiful Na Skalce park. It is located on a hill and includes the first water tower in historical Smíchov. In the park you can enjoy a charming lake, gazebo and different types of trees.
The two islands that belong to Smíchov – Císařská louka and Dětský ostrov – are also an oasis of peace and quiet.
Area around the Smíchov railroad station
The part of Smíchov in the bottom part of the Smíchov railroad station isn’t currently particularly exclusive, but this should change in time. A new developer project should start by the end of 2018 and should bring more greenery and luxurious housing to this neighborhood.
Culture and social life
New restaurants and cafés are being opened all over Prague and Smíchov is no exception. Cultural events are provided by Švandovo theather or the CineStar Anděl cinema. For shopping you can visit the Nový Smíchov shopping mall and in summer you can enjoy various events in the premises of the famous Smíchov brewery.
