Weekly Photo Challenge: “My Green Prague”

The last 16 years, I’ve traveled to the Czech Republic for so many times (lost counting 38 times, maybe 39?) since my internship in the East Bohemian city Pardubice. Pardubice is hometown to ‘The Dominator,’ the legendary ice hockey goalkeeper, Dominik Hasek. When you start attending the HC Pardubice games, the locals fall in love with you quickly (and you’ll fall in love with them). Pardubice is breathing hockey and it became an addiction. After my graduation I found a job, and when I got days off, my first plane, train or bus destination was Pardubice. Great times and I still have many friends over there, pure nostalgia. But, there is one thing that I regret– Why didn’t I discover more of this fabulous country? Six years ago I changed this and started to explore more, much more. 

Wenclesas Square, Jewish Cemetery, Charles Bridge, Mala Strana, Astronomical Clock, Petrin Hill– sorry guys, been there done that. Next to Pardubice, I felt in love with Prague. A moment that I still remember was an urban exploration trip through the outskirts of Prague (Click here).  Away from all the city hustle and bustle and on my way to that urban exploring location, I got the chance to discover another Prague, the green belt around Prague. And to be honest, maybe it’s not high ranked on Trip Advisor, but for me personally it was a more exciting experience then seeing an astronomical clock. Pictures were shot springtime of 2015.

  1. the lush green with plenty of sunshine, the smell of moist grass but not as wet as in UK…yes, the Czechs get the outdoor living perfectly right. I miss it too and it is hard to look at your photos today in UK only 6 degrees, wind and still only bare trees!

  2. I’ve lived in Prague for almost two years and, yes, there’s so much to see away from the touristy area. I love the green areas. Looks like you discovered Divoka Sarka, which is my favorite place in the city.
