Tuesday Netwalking with Cherries and Rocks

Bořislavka

Ahoj Netwalkers! As usual, apart from giving you an opportunity to stretch your legs after a day in the office while chatting to friendly like-minded people, this Netwalk is packed with highlights and interesting off-the-beaten path places in Prague! June is the month of cherries so let's check if there are some left for us! We will go to a lovely old cherry orchard in Vokovice and enjoy a pleasant walk along the Sarka Creek. The walk will end around 8:45 pm at the "Divoka Sarka" tram terminus. We will then go for optional meal and/or drink in a nearby restaurant. HIGHLIGHTS: • Vokovice Cherry Orchard • Divoka Sarka - Prague's most loved natural reserve! DIFFICULTY: Easy Wearing comfortable walking shoes is a must! Consider using an insect repellent to keep ticks away. HOW TO JOIN: Just sign up. And please be so kind to sign off again, if you cannot make it! We are looking forward to meeting you. And we all know, how deeply disappointing it is when your meeting partner doesn't show up. MEETING POINT: Borislavka, metro A station PRICE: Free I look forward to walking and chatting with you! Cheers, Filip [masked]

It won't be the only superlative of the day as we will raft along the largest (!) sandstone canyon in the whole of Europe.

Let's hike in the High Tatras in Slovakia!

Prague Main Railway Station/Praha Hlavni Nadrazi

PLEASE NOTE: To secure your place on this trip, you have to (!) reserve it on DP website! Book now here: https://discoveringprague.cz/event/hiking-high-tatras/ ------------------------------------- Hello Discoverers! Let's go hiking in the High Tatra Mountains (Vysoké Tatry) in Slovakia! The Tatras are the highest mountains of the Carpathian range which spans across Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia and Poland. There are 26 summits above 2500 meters/8200 ft a.s.l and more than a hundred glacial lakes ('plesa' in Slovak). Our hiking base will be near the bank of the most famous one - Štrbské pleso. HIGHLIGHTS • Travel on a sleeper train from Prague to the High Tatras • Stay in a hotel on the bank of the Štrbské pleso lake at 1346 m.a.s.l. • Three carefully selected day hikes to some of the most beautiful places in the mountains Maximum number of participants: 14 LOGISTICS The trip starts at 21:00 on Wednesday night, therefore you will only need to take the Thursday and Friday off work! We will travel to Slovakia over the night on a sleeper train with beds (in private compartments each for 3 people). For DETAILED ITINERARY AND PICTURES go to Discovering Prague & CZ website here https://discoveringprague.cz/event/hiking-high-tatras/ PRICE 4990 CZK or 4790 CZK with Discovery Pass* The price includes: Round-trip train ticket from Prague to Štrbské Pleso, local transport, 3 nights accommodation with half-board (breakfast and dinner included), guiding and organization, Travel Agency Insurance and a photo report. WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED • The breakfast on the first day and lunches during the whole trip. • Travel health insurance. I strongly advise you to arrange one because your regular health insurance (e.g. EHIC) wouldn’t cover, for example, an emergency helicopter transport. It is extremely unlikely you will need that but better to be safe than sorry! Insure yourself for about 100 Kč and have peace of mind! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Reserve your place here: https://discoveringprague.cz/event/hiking-high-tatras/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------- *What is "Discovery Pass"?

I look forward to discovering High Tatras with you! Cheers, Filip
