Pilsen 2015

I had decided to go to Pilsen as a volunteer to find some new friends and live some new experiences. I wanted to help with the organisation of the ,, European Capital of Culture 2015″. And I have really appreciated it. Although this week wasn’t really filled with action, I’ve lived many little pleasures. I visited the trio of exhibitions of Ladislav Sutnar, a Pilsen native and an internationally known designer of applied art. One of the best pop – artists  like Andy Warhol. I spent one evening at the riverside, listening to live music. This place has a great atmosphere – not only because of a nice swing, an observation post and a cableway over the river. The Czech association Pěstuj Prostor organizes summer work camps here and tries to bring to life some of the suggestions formulated by the public. This year the multinational work campers further improved this place and completed it with handmade wooden chairs and tables. They also repaired and arranged a place called Fountains at Roudna. There were initially three water springs, but one of them dried up after a bomb crash during the war. It is this one which plays on your senses – that’s why it’s called sentimental (sensational?). Meaning that you have to go barefoot along the path where the water flowed and step on different types of natural materials. I also saw a beaver in the Radbuza river. Pilsen is really full of exciting little things to discover.
