Flood in Prague

It has been raining non-stop for last two weeks and now there are floods in Bohemia, which is part of the Czech Republic. It looks like it won’t be as bad as it was almost eleven years ago, when the historical centre of the Prague was flooded, as well as the lower part of the Prague Zoo and other areas. Now the volume of water running through the Vltava River is at about two thirds of the volume in year 2002.

It was still raining heavily today but I decided to take some photos of the Vltava River and its surroundings.

Wild ducks and swans didn’t seem to mind the neverending rain.

The nearest sign says: There is a bike lane, cyclist and pedestrians, be careful!

I hope the floods will end soon and won’t cause any more damages.
