Info

Divoká Šárka (Czech pronunciation: [ˈɟɪvokaː ˈʃaːrka]; Wild Šárka) is a nature reserve on the northwestern outskirts of Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic.
It contains a gorge. It is named after the female warrior Šárka, who, according to mythology, threw herself to her death from its cliffs after betraying her lover Ctirad during the Maidens' War.
It is the closest site to the city where the black woodpecker lives.
There is a lake Džbán (The Pitcher) on the border of the Divoká Šárka reserve area and a public swimming pool located in the middle of the reserver. The water of the pool is supplied by clean and fresh water from the Šárka spring creek that passes through the park and the lake.
