Week 05, 2013: Stromovka

 

A few weeks ago, I had an unexpected Friday off (students can cancel up to 12 hours in advance with no penalty…in other words, I don’t get paid). Walter and I decided to go visit a local park – our motivation being that we wanted to go somewhere different without having to pay money. We landed on Stromovka, literally meaning “place of trees” located in Prague 07. Needing a “nature escape” from the city, we hopped on a tram and made our way there. _DSC1721The park is located right next to Prague Exhibition Grounds which had some beautiful architecture reminiscent of a World Fair in the 1800s. I wasn’t able to get close enough for any good shots though. The park also has a planetarium.
