Educational trail Vinořský park - Satalice
One of Prague's nature trails connects Vinořský Park and Satalice, ie two city districts at the northeastern edge of the capital. The wine park, where the nature trail begins, was originally a natural landscape park adjacent to the wine castle. It was an extensive waterlogged valley, whose natural boundary was sandstone rocks and at the same time it is also an archeological site, where there used to be a Slavic fortified settlement.
