Let’s have a nice walk in the forests of western Bohemia. I will take you to my uncle’s favourite blueberry picking area. If the weather is right, i.e warm and humid, we should be able to find plenty of mushrooms as well.
We will meet on Saturday July 1 at 8:00 AM at the bus stop in front of Akcent Hotel, Stroupeznickeho 1, Praha 5 – Smichov. It is immediately outside of metro B station Andel, exit Na Knizeci. Photo of the meeting point is below.
What to bring with you: Wear forest-friendly comfortable clothes which will protect you from ticks, scratches, nettle bites and so on. Preferably closed shoes and long trousers. Don’t worry about being too hot. It will be cooler in the shade of the forest. Take an insect repellent and sunscreen. Some antihistamine cream (e.g. Fenistil gel) might come handy as well.
Take a sturdy container with you so you don’t end up bringing home blueberry puree instead of blueberries. If you intend to look for mushrooms too, bring a small pocket knife for cleaning and a basket. It is not good to carry mushrooms in a plastic bag!
Lunch: Bring packed lunch and water.
We should arrive back to Prague by 7:00 pm
PRICE: 690 CZK or 490 CZK with Discovery Pass (just add your coupon at the checkout).
