We are taking to Prague for a walk today. We won’t dwell in the historical district, nor are we going to see landmarks. We go in nature through Prokopske and Dalejske valleys . Apart form rare fauna, flora and paleontological significant localities, there are also places great for active relax or rest from day’s work and worries.

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? Today, there is are great cafes, bistors and restaurants one next to another. The houses have been beautifully repaired and the streets are always full of life. You will easily think that you walk along some beautiful boulevard in France.
Together with Hradcany, Charles Bridge and Male Mesto, the Old Town of Prague is one of the iconic places in the city which is popular all around the world. The history of this part of the city dates back to the 9th century, the world-famous town hall was established in 1338 as the first one of its kind in Bohemia. Let's go together to the most famous places and hidden nooks.
Nowadays, there are no buildings in the Jewish quarter of Prague, except for the synagogues and the mysterious Old Jewish Cemetery about which we wrote the last time-. Synagogues belong to the orthodox Prague Jewish community, some of them feature exhibits from the Jewish Museum which you may view as ordinary visitors.
Prague-Zbraslav managed to revitalize a wooded hillside a few years ago between residential construction, which was far from the park. Today it rightly boasts the name of the Belveder Forest Park. And as the name belveder suggests, it is a scenic point.
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.
The forest-park on the south-eastern edge of Prague, founded at the beginning of the 18th century as a part of the Milíčov Court, is perfect for a walk on a hot summer day. The paths take you to relaxation areas, a children's playground or ponds where people can swim. However, bathing dogs is prohibited.
The Chuchelský háj nature trail passes through the nature reserve above Prague's Chuchle, which connects to the Barrandovské skály nature trail. It will take you along a yellow tourist and at the same time cycling asphalt road, mostly through deciduous vegetation from Velká to Malá Chuchle, or vice versa. The biggest attraction, especially for children, is the local zoo.
This time we take a walk into the streets of Prague. We will omit the main landmarks on purpose. Our goal is to see places with for distinct atmosphere of their own, places that you will love.
Drahanske Valley connects city district of Prague 8 – Dolni Chabry with the left bank of the Vltava river. To walkers it offers many places to enjoy, to bikers pretty tricky route.
In Jerusalem street, an inconspicuous street from Jindrisska tower in Prague, is hiding a gem among Prague's buildings - the Jerusalem or als the Jubilee Synagogue. Witnesses may know it as the Great Synagogue.
Everyone has been in the Troja Zoo. And everyone who has been there likes to return. Not only Czechs, however. There are many foreigners enchanted by this place on the Vltava bank as well.
The most expensive street in the Czech Republic, with no doubts. You can guess it from reading signs on this avenue connecting Letna and lively Old Town Square.
A place of work or friendly meetings. A place you can do sports and a place with a magnificent view of Prague. This is Letna.
Hopefully the last snow of this winter fell but it created a wonderful atmosphere around the observatory in Ďáblice located on a hill called Na vyhlídce in Ďáblický háj. The observatory is small but enchanting with antiquity of its furnishing such as it’s the First Republic telescopes.
Spring is playing with us. One day it is 16 degrees Celsius the other it’s snowing. However, it changes nothing about the fact spring, the most beautiful of all seasons of the year, is coming. Not only people but animals as well can sense it.
No matter what the current weather is, Kampa and Charles Bridge are still overflowed with tourists. Including the day when the temperature fell to minus 3 degrees and it was occasionally snowing. This place hidden under the Charles Bridge offers thousands of different views. Kampa is simply beautiful in every season of year.
Every time kids went to visit the National Museum, they felt it was a punishment. However, for them it was still a lesser evil then learning. One started to put things into a broader perspective after he/she matured, and started to understand analogies between the past and the future. Then he/she began to appreciate the hidden value of the National Museum. Until recently hid.
You can’t miss the church on Bílenecké Square in Prague Dolní Chabry. This small Romanesque building has a magic of its own and everyone who knows little bit about it is attracted to it like a magnet.
