Střelecký Ostrov Prague

Střelecký Ostrov – Island in the heart of Prague

There are twelve islands on Prague’s 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.
