There are twelve islands on the river Vltava. One of them, located approximately in the middle of the river and connected with both banks by a bridge, is called Střelecký ostrov (Shooter’s island).
There are two ways to approach the island, one is by foot across bridge and the second is to rent a paddle boat and paddle across the river. On the south bank of the island is a restaurant which offers great views but the prices of food and drinks are high. The rest of the island is a recently reconstructed park. From one side you can see Kampa, from the other side Národní divadlo (National theatre). I love to sit on the bank near Kampa, watch the swans playing with paddle boats or just hang out with my friends.
Almost everyday there is a cultural event – concerts and parties (for free), and what I think is definitely worth visiting is the open air cinema. You can enjoy the island also with children, since there are two pitches and on the north bank also a little beach. The only disadvantage – no dogs allowed.
