Vinohrady (in English literally "vineyards", formerly Královské Vinohrady, Königliche Weinberge) is a cadastral district in Prague. It gains its name from the fact that the area was once covered in vineyards dating from the 14th century. Vinohrady lies in the municipal and administrative districts of Prague 2, Prague 3 and Prague 10. From 1867 to 1968, it was known as Královské Vinohrady ("Royal Vineyards"). In 1922, Vinohrady became part of Prague. Because it was known as a "bourgeois" district and thus politically unreliable, the then-ruling Communists split Vinohrady into different municipal districts in 1949.
Havlíčkovy Sady (literally Havlíček's Orchards), Prague's second-largest park, is located in this district. There is a productive vineyard in operation in Gröbovka Park, located next to Havlíčkovy Sady.
