1) Koupaliště Divoká Šárka
The swimming pools are surrounded by majestic nature (source)
There are two separate 30-meter swimming pools on the territory of the nature reserve. This is a stunning place for a walk along the hills which can be completed with a swim in the lake. The pool is filled up by water from a nearby mountain stream. Therefore, early in the morning and in cold weather, the water is rather cold. It is a very popular place as most people prefer to swim in the Džbán reservoir located within walking distance. If you want to swim in clear water, surrounded by majestic nature, then there is no better place. The adjacent territory is covered by a lawn. In the area, there are also: “paddling pool” for children, playgrounds, showers, changing rooms, toilets, buffets, table tennis, rental of sports equipment.
