Would you like to enjoy city life in the middle of nature? In that case, you'll undoubtedly succumb to the magic of the Hřebenky area in Prague 5. It offers a variety of sports activities all year-round, as well as parks and excellent restaurants. The icing on the cake are prestigious international schools, which give the final touch to a happy home for the whole family.
Return home like Carrie Bradshaw
Do you sometimes dream of walking back home through a beautiful lobby, where you get greeted by the receptionists like in amovie? That's exactly what the Na Hřebenkách design residence has to offer. In addition, you don't have to be afraid when returning late at night and rummage for the keys at the bottom of your handbag. You'll have enough time to find them in the comfort and warmth of the elevator that will take you to your dream floor. In addition, the entire building is safeguarded by 24-hour security.
When you enter the luxury apartment, you'll find yourself bathing in light! The building, designed by architect Radan Hubička, has a lot of glazed areas, providing excellent lighting for the interior without compromising your privacy. The apartment is south-facing, so you can enjoy the sun until late in the afternoon.
Lounging on the terrace
You don't have to soak up the sunny days just from behind a window! Why not make yourself something good to drink, take your favorite book and enjoy a day out on the terrace? With an area of 14 square meters, you'll even have plenty of space for a barbecue with friends.
Hop from the gym right in the pool
The residence also offers services for more choosy clients. The facilities of the house include a swimming pool with two countercurrents, a sauna, a fully equipped fitness center, table tennis and a squash court. Conventiently, everything can be found in one place. When the situation returns to normal, we recommend visiting the Namastery studio, which is located in Smíchov and promises yoga enthusiasts a unique experience. Why? The premises of the studio formerly belonged to a monastery.
Civic amenities are a given
Whatever you need, Prague 5 has it all. There are many international private schools that will give your children the best education, such as private kindergarten KORÁLEK or private elementary school The Road to Success. You'll also find here plenty of children’s playgrounds, medical centers and shops. If you want to feel like whipping out your credit card, the Nový Smíchov shopping center is really close.
Culture is just a stone's throw away, too! Next tho shopping opportunities, the Nový Smíchov shopping center also offers a cinema, located on the top floor. If you prefer theater, the Švanda Theater in Smíchov is only 10 minutes away by car.
Accessibility of the center in the forefront
Are you in a hurry to get to a meeting in the center? All you have to do is pick up your car from the garage, which is part of the residence, and you're gonna be there before you manage to count to five. Alternatively, the bus and tram station (Nad Klamovkou, Hřebenka) is only a five minute walk away. The fact that the district neighbors with Prague 6 is also practical, as you can easily get to the exit towards the Václav Havel airport, Pilsen or Karlovy Vary.
The heyday of the city district
This year, the town hall plans to invest 341 million crowns in revitalization.
"In the area of investments in public space, we are counting on the start of the long-planned renovation of Chaplin Square. We would also like to start the reconstruction of Kavalírka Park,"
outlined the mayor of Prague 5 Renáta Zajíčková.
Other key investments include the construction of housing for the elderly Poštovka or the insulation of the Barrandov Polyclinic.
Have a pint!
All of us firmly believe and hope that the current situation will end soon and we'll able to dive into the hustle and bustle of the city again. Enjoy a drink and a nice meal with friends. On your new address, you'll have plenty of options. Around Petřín, there are several excellent restaurants to choose from - for example, Strahov and Petřín are among the favorites. Not far from the Kinský Garden is the excellent Tapas Restaurant, where you can enjoy the best cheeses and salamis. If you get a taste for something more traditional, then head to Smíchov for the Vidličky a nože restaurant. You can order craft beer from the Matuška mini-brewery to go with the delicious Czech food.
If you prefer to sit outside, you can enjoy a chilled drink in the Klamovka garden restaurant.
Petřínské sady, Ladronka or Klamovka
The residence is right halfway between Ladronka Park and Petřín Gardens. It depends on you whether you decide to spend your afternoon on a walk or go skating or cycling to Ladronka, where a first-class 4-kilometer asphalt trail awaits your adventures. There's also an outdoor takeway window right next to the trail, where you can refresh yourself during sports activities. Another place to visit in the park is the outdoor gym The Gym House, which is open during even during the pandemic. However, its capacity is limited, so you'll need to make a reservation in advance. A one-time entry costs 130 CZK for an unlimited time.
Have you had enough of walking and would rather relax a little? How about taking a cable car to Petřín? It operates every day from 9 am to 8 pm in 15-minute intervals. All types of public transport tickets are valid for the ride.
In Prague 5 you'll find, among other things, Klamovka Park with a children's playground and an outdoor garden. Even if you stay close to home, your children will never get bore outside.
Walks in all directions
In addition to two popular Prague parks, you can take a pleasant walk to the Strahov Monastery (2.9 km) or visit the historic area of Prague Castle (3.3 km). And if you love gardens, trees and lots of greenery, this will definitely make you happy. Not far from Hřebeny is the Kinský Garden (Smíchov), which is part of the natural monument Petřín. You can visit here the Church of the Holy Archangel Michael from the second half of the 17th century, the Baroque statue of Hercules from the end of the 17th century or the columned sundial from 1686.
And there's more than just one garden. Right below Petřín, you'll find the Lobkowitz Garden in Malá Strana. A nice option for a walk from here is the Lobkowitz Palace with its beautiful gardens.
