The end of September I visited the town of Třinec and met two schools playing the Traffic Snake Game (in Czech called “Oblékáme hada Edu”).
Třinec is an important industrial and cultural centre in the Moravian-Silesian Region in the north-east of the Czech Republic, close to the Polish border and also near to the border with Poland. The town is notable for its ironworks, Třinecké železárny – Moravia Steel. It is the largest steel making company in the Czech Republic and still has a major impact on the town and on its character.
Together with the school kids I learned a lot about traffic signs and rules, and we rode bicycles, scooters and pedal cars in the playground.
The schools organised an art contest for the pupils. The children from the school Kaštanová drew very nice pictures on the theme ‘A day without cars’.
Everyone was excited to meet me and were having their pictures taken with me.
What a pity I had to leave this nice country after this second visit. Hope to visit the Czech republic soon another time.
