On the edge of clearing, hidden in the leaves - easy to miss. Hideout with views over the ponds towards the old town. Swinging in the wind, looking up the branches, observing the clearing, the ponds, church tower; To see and remain hidden. Apolo is entered through the bottom: first bend down, then jump and pull up (with focus on social interaction - true gentleman helps the lady) Apolo is a cube of 2x2x2 meters - made of naked maple trunks joined together with steel joints - welded insitu. Walls are woven with leftovers of maple trees used for the base structure. All wood used was collected within 100 m distance. The cube is safely suspended on nearby trees - flexible enough to allow light swinging in the wind, but blocking extreme movements, which may cause injury. Thick web of branches and leaves above shelter the rain and snow. Zatisi is/was a ruined forest-park on the outskirts of Vodnany. Popular dating place in the past. May Apolo help these.
