Time Out says

A sprawling nature reserve, including multiple swimming pools, on the outskirts of Prague

Forty-five minutes to an hour on public transport from the city center will take you into the gorgeous natural beauty of the outdoors, often referred to in direct translation from Czech as “the nature”. With sloping hills and rocky cliffs converging around a small gorge, this diverse landscape is perfect for gentle hiking through blooming flowers in the spring or watching multi-colored leaves change hues in autumn. Two open-air swimming pools and a children’s wading pool draw residents seeking a refreshing dip in a landlocked country during the summer months – head northwest into the park from the Divoká Šárka bus stop and follow the stream to find them. 

Time Out tip: Czech hiking style is punctuated with stops at the pub, so there are restaurants and refreshment scattered throughout the area.

*Divoká Šárka is in a remote area, so these suggestions instead fall along the public transport lines used to travel there.
Misto: For breakfast on the green Metro line before continuing to the nature reserve
Klášterní Pivovar: For a thirty-minute public transport trip (or fifteen-minute taxi) to a monastery brewery and restaurant to refuel
Lemon Leaf: For a full day of outdoor enjoyment take a thirty-minute tram ride to finish at a popular beer garden
