Following our tradition, YEE office team took part in the international World Water Monitoring Challenge, a campaign which aims to raise awareness on water pollution issues and invites people to take part in water monitoring activities.

This year we travelled to Brandýs nad Labem-Stará Boleslav, a lovely pair of towns about 30 km northeast from Prague divided by the Elbe river. We chose this location for two reasons: the first, the area is extremely rich in rivers and lakes so that we could monitor four different locations. The second reason is that both towns were absolutely lovely - in particular, the Romanesque St. Wenceslas basilica and the baroque Church of the Assumption of Mary confer the cities a touch of class and elegance - and they are surrounded by luxuriant woods where, in autumn, shades of brown, red, yellow and green create a magnificent atmosphere. We have also been very lucky with the weather: after a misty early morning, the sun began to shine and made our promenade, together with the landscape around us, particularly pleasant.
