Its picturesque houses and beautiful English-style gardens, set against the backdrop of the Old City, make Kampa Island one of Prague’s most charming spots. Enjoy a leisurely picnic in the park, visit the museum of modern art or admire the majestic palaces on the waterfront.
If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Prague’s city centre, descend the stairs from the famous Charles Bridge to enter Kampa Island. In this oasis of tranquillity, the cobbled streets are flanked by elegant houses and cosy cafés. Strolling along the banks of the Vltava River is an absolute pleasure, day or night. The wonderful views of twinkling lights from Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral and the National Theatre are unforgettable.
“Look carefully and you can see a typical ochre-coloured house with a wrought iron balcony. This is the House with Picture of the Virgin Mary.”
