7 – Celtic oppidum

If like me, the wonders of Prague never cease to amaze you, you will delighted to know that just 20 minutes from the town centre, you can go for a walk around the site of a Celtic oppidum, thought to have been inhabited between 200 BC – 1 BC. Today, only protruding stones guide the hiker round the significant areas but between the periods known today by historians as La Tène C2 and La Tène D2, you would have strolled through ramparts, an artisanal square, industrial and residential areas of a thriving, important Celtic hub, spanning over 118 hectares, complete with coin minting workshop and acropolis.

    Did this walk in December, it was windy in the parking area but once inside the forest, the trees were like protecting us from the wind, we had a beautiful walk, as usual there were certain areas where it was a bit difficult to walk but I would say that in general this is not a difficult walk, good shoes are needed and plenty of water for the dogs. Thanks for this experience, I can’t wait for the next adventure.

    Nice walk just on the city limits, easy even in December, accessible everywhere, just a bit uphill. Mostly forest, bits of fields – everything a dog walker needs. Thanks for showing another trail 🙂

    Lovely walk done with the whole bunch and too sweet for trying not to return on the same path. The info about the history of the place was appreciated. We had a lovely time.
