The biggest snowball fight in Prague

This ambitious project of a bunch of excited university students seemed unrealistic from the start. Even in mid-January, Prague isn’t a particularly snowy place, and this year was no different. The usual 3 centimetres of snow, which are always a source of great excitement for the city’s denizens, had melted weeks ago and the Letná park offered nothing but green grass and yellow sand. Yet the organisers were not disheartened and had snow brought in from the Krkonoše Mountains: 50 tons of it, or enough to make 180,000 snowballs. An excavator divided the snow into four piles and the one-hour long battle involving more than 300 adults, children and students could start. Prague experienced a truly original snowball fight full of excitement and many memories of childhood. We want to express our respect to the organisers as well as everyone who took part, and hope that next year will bring not only better weather, but also more sponsors. After all, the collection box near the entrance reading “Donations will be used to pay off the organisers’ debts” said everything there was to be said. But it was worth it.
