Warmer weather up to 20°C is in the forecast for the Czech Republic in the week leading up to Easter, and the city of Prague has launched a handy online guide to 20 parks and other little-seen locations around the city that are safe to tour during the current lockdown measures.

Current restrictions mandate that a respirator be worn while walking around built-up urban areas, which include the streets of Prague, but the Czech capital is also one of the greenest major cities in the world with plenty of parks that can be enjoyed during the upcoming holiday weekend.

While getting some fresh air and exercise around Prague is good for mental and physical health, the city also reminds residents to watch the three Rs: ruce, roušky, rozestupy (that's hands, face (masks), and space for English speakers).

Under the banner of Safely around Prague, the city's guide to safe locations is divided into two areas featuring parks and nature spots around the city, and some of the more quiet areas within the city's streets.

Note that a respirator should currently be worn if traveling on the street areas, as well as within the parks if social distancing measures (two meters between people) cannot be maintained.
