What makes for a perfect weekend evening in spring or summer for the Czechs? One of the options is clear: sitting around a campfire, roasting špekáčky sausages or bread and singing along with a guitar. We have decided to help you experience such an event with us so that you can judge for yourself, what the most romantic or appealing thing about a táborák campfire evening is.

Join our marvellous nature-knowledgeable assistant Agi for a short walk through the bottom part of the Hády quarry in Líšeň, the beautiful ponds of Růženin lom, arriving at a campfire site all ready for us, to enjoy some roast sausages (or whatever you prefer to roast) with some beer or other drinks, and learning some of the song staples of a Czech guitar singalong – we’ll have songbooks prepared for you so you can follow the words.

We’ll meet at the Stará Osada tram and bus terminus at 17:30 and take bus no. 78 at 17:37 or bus no. 55 at 17:45 to the Podbělová stop. From there we’ll follow a path through the Hády quarry, finishing at the campfire site near the Llama centre. If you can’t make it in time or want to skip the walk, you can take bus no. 64 to Červený písek later on and come directly to the campfire site.

There is a kiosk selling beer and non-alcoholic drinks and some snacks, you can also buy a complete roasting set – sausages, bread, mustard. Or you can bring whatever you’d like to roast yourself. The whole event is also suitable for families; the nearest bus stop is only 7 minutes away when you decide to return home.

Don’t forget good shoes and warmer clothing or a blanket for the evening. If you play a musical instrument, definitely bring it along! A songbook with chords and song translations will be provided. 🙂

If interested, you can read more about Czech campfire culture in this article about sausages and this one about campfires and music.
