Prague - National Park?

Welcome!

If someone consider city nature does not belong among skylines’ thread, let me know you that Prague hills and rocks are higher than Prague skyscrapers.

Only two cities worldwide publish geological city maps regularly, Paris and Prague. While Paris maps include mostly Ile-de-France-surounds up to 65 kilometres (40 miles) from the city centre, most of Prague natural beauty is situated within 15 minutes slow walk from closest public transport stop.

When coming to visit Prague, let’s think about leaving the center and see unique suburbs of valleys, outcrops and canyons.

Part 1:

Prague 4 - Branik rocks (along a tram line towards Modrany)



Prague 5 - Divci Hrady hill and surounds (along a tram line towards Barrandov)





Prague 5 - Barrandov district
Scaffold bridge for trams


View from a tram window (Prague behind us)


Tram window views



Yes, of course


Tram stop


Prague 5 - Prokopske and Dalejske valleys (5-15 minutes slow walk from Poliklinika Barrandov tram stop)




A railway bridge. City S-line (like german S-bahn) operates between Praha-Konvarka and Praha-Stodulky right here (nom joke)






Carefully, frog migration!


Prague 5 - Prokopske and Dalejske valleys (closer to the other part of Prague; 15-5 minutes slow walk to Nove Butovice metro line B station)






Commie blocks of Nove Butovice and Stodulky welcome us on the other edge of the valleys:



End of part 1 .

You have not credited any of the photos. I am assuming they are self taken, so will move this thread to Urban Showcase. If they are by someone else, please credit them and pm me so I can move it back to Cityscapes.

Part 2:

Prague 6 - Sarecke valley (5-15 min from tram line Cerveny Vrch - Divoka Sarka)

Deep and pitoresque Sarecke valley is reachable right at the Divoka Sarka tram terminus:






View towards Prague 6 district:






Prague 6 - Sarecke valley (coming closer to the other part of the valley; 15-5 min from city bus stop Jeneralka)






Some small commie blocks remind us city smatrs


Part of the Sarecke valley is lined by 1920's-30's villas and new VIP residences




Prague 7 - Podbaba
The Vltava river leave Prague throughout a tiny rocky valley:


Road and rail take place in the valley too (EC train Prague - Berlin on )


Looking back we can see a pretty siluet of Prague castle:


The Bohnice commie blocks (Prague 8) are the northernmost ones in Prague:


Here Vltava leaves Prague city administrative area, flows towards town of Melnik whre joins the Labe river and flows towards Hamburg to the North sea:

This is probably THE largest advantage to live in Prague. You can get to national-park-like sceneries in 15 minutes by metro from the city centre. Even better, tourist do not know about these valleys .

Good stuff, thanks. I'd like to see the summer pictures. And you're right, tourists don't know...I've never really left the city when I've visited.

Although I am pretty sure you can find a geologic map of Denver too
