In the video I interviewed some of my friends how they felt about their exchange experiences in Hradec Kralove. Let’s have a look at their reactions first 🙂
Hradec Králové(HK) is a city known for the best quality of living in the Czech Republic. The city is situated in the northern part of Czech Republic and the population is around 100,000. Walking on the street you can see many lovely and old people smiling at you. They may probably say Dobrý den to you, which means hello in the formal way. People in HK are keen on watching ice hockey games. The one represents HK is called Mountfield. Watching ice hockey games and cheering for their own team shows connection and affection to their hometown.
The pace of life is slow here and people enjoy the tranquility of a laid-back life. Having a beer or coffee after work is their way to enjoy life. The food and drink price is low so everything is affordable if you don’t feel like cooking everyday.
Mushroom hunting is also one of the biggest events for people to enjoy here. All you need to bring is a knife, a basket and a field guide with you. Be aware of the poisonous mushrooms! Those look beautiful and with the stripes are probably inedible. The color of edible mushrooms are usually brown or dark brown and you can feel its smooth by touching. It’s really hard to recognise the edible mushrooms; even a mushroom hunter can misunderstand it sometimes. However, it is still a lot of fun to pick up mushrooms in a forest with friends even we barely can find an edible mushroom.
Whenever you have a chance, you should seize the opportunity and go for it.
