Czechs encouraged to exercise

Indoor sports facilities in Prague are open to the public for free from today until the end of the year. Over 100 such facilities have traditionally opened their doors in what is called a Week of Sport for Free. The event is intended to encourage more Prague inhabitants, particularly young people, to exchange the couch for the sport field or swimming pool. Last year 20,000 of the city’s inhabitants availed themselves of the opportunity. A list of the facilities open for free can be found at
