The most beautiful and romantic places in the center of Prague to dance and enjoy the spring and upcoming summer. The Vineyard Gazebo in what is today a municipal park called Havlíčkovy sady was built in 1871 – 1888 as a part of the fancy summer residence of the industrialist Moritz Gröbe. The grounds are dominated by a neo-Renaissance villa with a stone terrace, below which a vineyard was placed on the southern slope, supplemented with a wooden Vineyard Gazebo, with prominent carved elements. The Vineyard Gazebo became, together with the artificial cave grotto, the fountain with a statute of Neptune, and the summer pavilion, one of the romantic additional features of the extensive Gröbe Villa grounds. It served as a facility for the adjoining vineyard and also served as a music pavilion and always boasted a very pleasant view. The Vineyard Gazebo, a separately registered cultural monument, is a very balanced work in terms of composition. It was built on two levels, on a smaller stone terrace cutting into the steep hill of the vineyard.
