Places for stargazing in or near Prague

#1

Příspěvek od dzvolkau »

Hello! Can anyone share good places for stargazing near Prague that are reachable by car? It'll be nice to see some places that aren't more than one hour of driving. I've found one near Pyšely (49.882647668037, 14.672717774886289) that takes about a half hour if your start point is located in the south of Prague. In my opinion (I'm newbie in stargazing), this place is quite good for observing night sky if you plan to do that after 9 or 10 pm, but at early times your night vision can be crashed by a lonely car going in direction of the Kaple sv. Panny Marie on the hill.

Here's a couple photos of this place:

You can try Konojedy ( 49.9509439N, 14.8667194E ). There is a lot of information in the linked thread, just you have to go together with somebody who owns the crossbar key.
