Tuesday Netwalking around Žižkov
16 July @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This Tuesday Netwalk will take you around the lively and green neighbourhood of Žižkov in Prague 3. Apart from walking & talking, we will do some sightseeing and a bit of urban exploration as well!
• Olšany Cemetery – the largest graveyard in Prague
• The former Freight Station in Zizkov
• The skyline of Prague from Parukářka
• A drink or two at Pristav 18600 in Karlin
We will start by walking across the largest green space in the inner Prague you probably haven’t been to – The Olsany Cemetery. The cemetery closes at 7:00 pm so on this occasion there is no time to wait for late-comers.
If you are running late, you can catch up with the group at 7:00 pm at the tram stop “Mezi hrbitovy” (3 stops from Flora by tram 10, 11 or 16).
After crossing the busy Jana Zelivskeho street, we will check a unique industrial monument – the former Freight Train Station Zizkov (Nakladove nadrazi Zizkov). To fully appreciate the industrial beauty of the place we will walk along the old platforms. But beware, this will be a bit of UrbEx and you will enter strictly at your own risk!
Then we will head back to the greenery at the Parukarka Park and enjoy some great views over our beloved city.
The rest of the walk will be down the hill and through the foot tunnel to the vibrant summer Karlin where we will finish the walk at the trendy Pristav 18600 outdoor bar.
Altogether some 6,5 km.
Better wearing closed shoes, there might be shards on the platforms of the old Freight Station. Consider using an insect repellent to keep ticks away.

Please note: The Olsansky cemetery closes at 7:00 pm so on this occasion there is no time to wait for late-comers. You can catch up with the group at 7:00 pm at the tram stop “Mezi hrbitovy” (3 stops from Flora by tram 10, 11 or 16).
