The basics

Most Prague river cruises sail past the picturesque Kampa Island, or you can join a city tour on foot—or by bike, e-bike, e-scooter, or three-wheeled motorcycle to take in what is considered one of the most beautiful urban islands in the world. With its postcard-ready views of the Charles Bridge and street-art-heavy Lennon Wall, the island is also a popular stop on photography tours; gourmands can join a food tour that stops at the clutch of restaurants on the northern tip of the island. Independent travelers can instead opt to stop at the island during a hop-on hop-off bus tour and relax over a picnic lunch at the park on the south end.

Things to know before you go

  • With a grassy expanse of park and a cluster of small restaurants, Kampa Island is less crowded than the rest of Malá Strana and a good spot to recharge while touring the city.
  • The park is a great place for kids to run off some steam while the grown-ups admire the trio of contemporary artist David Černý’s crawling baby bronze statues.
  • Some of the city’s most photo-ready spots are on the island, so be sure to bring your camera.
  • The park, museum, and square are wheelchair-accessible, though not all boat tours along the river and channel are; confirm in advance.

Contemporary Art on Kampa Island

Kampa Island is home to the Kampa Museum, which focuses on modern art from central Europe. One of the most famous sights on the island is the three giant bronze baby sculptures located near the museum entrance—the sculptures were designed by controversial artist David Černý, who also created 10 other baby sculptures which can be seen crawling up the Zizkov TV Tower. A more whimsical art installation is the yellow penguins by the Cracking Art Group that stand in a line along a metal beam over the Vltava River and light up at night.
