Small botanic gardens in Karlov are my favorite place for Sunday walks. In spring and autumn they are the most magical because nature goes through amazing transformations. The light is also more gentle in these seasons than in summer when the sun can be too sharp and blinding not offering the best light conditions for photography.
Although the gardens are small you can find on every step different plant, flower, or tree. Many of those come from various and very distant countries and continents. You can also come upon one path that offers a geological exhibition. There are ponds where water flowers such as water lilies are grown. A small garden is inside the gardens themselves which offers the most restful area. The whole place is in the old part of town and quite close to the center and busy streets. But despite that within the walls of these small botanical gardens you can find yourself in very peaceful and almost meditative place surrounded by beautiful nature.
