The Production Gardens

Adjacent to the Empire Lumbe Villa, the seat of the President of the Republic, there is a huge area where there used to be a pheasantry with economic buildings in the era of Rudolph II. During the 17th and 18th century, the land started to be rented out due to the bad state of the pheasantry, and it lasted until the 19th century, when the land was purchased by a Prague surgeon, Karel Lumbe. The aim was to build a new Prague district on the newly formed land plots. However, this aim was not successful and the land plots were purchased by the Office of the President of the Republic in the 1920s, establishing gardens to suit the needs of Prague Castle. The vegetable seedbeds, greenhouses, fruit trees and flowers are constantly guarded by soldiers and the entire premises are not commonly accessible for public. There are two greenhouses where plants are grown to serve the purposes of decorating the castle during protocolar events, as well as flowers for the ornamental flowerbeds in the adjoining castle gardens. There is Rudolph’s Pond and Masaryk’s apiary in the area, designed by Architect Josip Plečnik, where honey is still produced today.
