Rašínovo nábřeží in Prague is the riverbank stretching from the tunnel beneath Vyšehrad and Jiráskův Most. For almost the entire length it’s accompanied by a bank called Náplavka.
I remember this place being almost deserted – only a few old pleasure boats, two fishermen and lots of pigeons. Since the opening of hipster pub Bajkazyl on Náplavka, the place has changed a lot – people are everywhere. Almost every evening there is some cultural event – a fairytale reading for children, theatre plays or concerts. Náplavka is where you should go to have fun. I like to hang out here with my friends also during daytime – the place offers a great view and plenty of benches.
Once a year, usually during June, the beer festival Pivo na náplavce (with more than 60 different Czech breweries) takes place here and is a must-go.
On Saturdays I visit a farmer’s market (I love to buy fresh rolls, ham and coffee for breakfast) and flea market, where I always find and sometimes buy interesting things.
