You are invited to another urban stroll/hike of mine around less-known parts of Prague! This one is inspired by THAP: Part VI.
You’ve probably heard of Sapa in Prague. It is the largest trading and cultural center of the Czech Vietnamese community. It is located on the southern outskirts of the Capital in Prague 4 – Libus. Sapa is definitely not the most beautiful part of town, in fact the last few hundred meters of the hike leads through an industrial estate. However, it is a place worth paying a visit. Even more so, if you’re a fan of Vietnamese food and/or need to buy some exotic ingredients for your cooking.
Besides, the Czech Vietnamese community is a phenomenon, you should certainly learn more about.
We’re going to meet outside of the metro C station Roztyly on Sunday May 28 at 10:00 AM
The hiking part should end around 12:30 PM.
Meeting point will be outside of the metro C station Roztyly
Pleasant walk in the second largest forest in Prague – Kunraticky Wood
Visit of the ruins of the Novy hradek (Wenzelsburg) -the place where the Czech king and Roman emperor Wenceslas IV. (son of Charles IV.) died in 1419. The castle was then ransacked and burned down by the Hussite fighters in 1421.
Lovely park of the Kunratice Chateau
Lunch in one of many restaurants in the SAPA Vietnamese Market Place AKA Little Hanoi. Supposedly one can get here the best Vietnamese food in the whole of Czechia!
DIFFICULTY: This is an EASY,8 km long walk, suitable for people who are new to hiking and want to built-up their stamina. We should make it in 2,5 hours with ease. Nevertheless, take good walking shoes, as there are places where the trail is rather rugged.
