The paths take you to relaxation areas, a children's playground or ponds where people can swim. However, bathing dogs is prohibited.
The third day of Christmas is St. Stephen's Day. There was a lot of carols in the Czech Republic and many children still go to the carol. He is not a master of Stephen and he means that workers are given temporary freedom, settling annual bills and paying rewards. Even if we were strict for ourselves all year long, today we can indulge in ourselves. So it is time to have breakfast and go for a walk.
Who would have thought that before the great flood in 2002 and a few years later would become one of Prague's most luxurious neighborhoods?

You will easily think that you walk along some beautiful boulevard in France.
