Przewalski’s Horse is the last wild species of horse in the world. Their original homeland is in Mongolia. In the 20th century, the population of the horses decreased dramatically. The Prague Zoo took responsibility for the Return of the Wild Horses project. It has a significant leading role among various institutions.
At Dívčí Hrady in Prague 5 there’s the almost twenty-hectare-large plain where the Przewalski’s horses got a new home. The whole area was created in April 2021. The first inhabitants are four mares, but the number of horses will change soon. The horses will contribute to the restoration of the original ecology of plants and animals by grazing the grass.
In the next two years, it will be possible to see the Przewalski’s horses mainly at Dívčí Hrady while the stables in the Prague Zoo in Troja district are being rebuilt. You can observe the horses from three viewpoints with all details about them and the buildings in the Prague panorama alike. The beautiful spot is now even more attractive.
I admire this fantastic project and the perfection of Zoo Prague’s team. “The Przewalski’s” can feel more the touch of freedom.
From the end station of tram No 7 or the Metro line B, from Radlická station it will take you 12 minutes on foot. A nice experience is waiting for you.
