Although Brno Reservoir is the official name, locals simply call it Prygl. However, not every one knows what it really means in its original slang Hantec. Hantec is a unique slang initially spoken among lower classes in Brno during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It developed from the mixing of the Moravian version of Czech language with the languages of other residents of Brno like Germans and Jews. The reservoir was built during the years 1936-1940 but the name Prygl was given to it probably sometime around 50s to 60s. The word prygl comes from German “der Prügel” (meaning stick, club or baton) and it was chosen because the long and narrow shape of the reservoir resembles a stick or a curved cane. Apart from its unusual name, Prygl has a lot to offer to its visitors. No wonder it has become one of the most popular places for both residents and non-residents alike.
The beauty of the place
You might ask what is so special about the place to make people come back. The main attraction is the overwhelming atmosphere of relaxation and chilling out. You can lie on soft grassy beaches, enjoy some food and drinks in one of its numerous bars and bistros or go for a swim. It’s a perfect place for a picnic with your friends, stretching your body a little choosing from a wide range of sports or just having fun with your family. No matter what you prefer, there’s always something for you. Last but not least, you can embark on an adventure with our Treasure Hunt. The game will take you to iconic spots around the water banks as well as to shady forest paths with no human soul in sight (apart from other Treasure Hunt players ;)).
What can you expect?
Treasure Hunt is a team game full of adrenaline and competition where the best team gains eternal glory and a well-deserved reward. However, you can also use it as a smart tour guide and enjoy the place in a more relaxing way. In short, the game adapts to players of any age, physical condition and current state of mind. In your tablet, which will be provided at the beginning, can be seen treasures hidden around the reservoir. Your task is to get physically to them and answer questions waiting there for you. The order in which you decide to solve the tasks is completely up to you as well as the speed of your movement. To add a bit of competitive spirit, you can watch the other teams during the whole game – not only their position on the map but also their score. Thus, everyone can tell if they are really hunting treasures or sitting in a pub having a beer :) As usual, the team which collects the highest number of points wins the game and gets a reward afterwards.
