What you should know about Kampa

Kampa is the biggest of the islands that sit in the Vltava River flowing through the historic center of Prague. This picturesque strip of land, which in former times served as a camp for soldiers, is now chiefly visited for its museum housing an important collection of modern Czech art. It also features in most people’s holiday snaps as the background view to the city’s world-famous Charles Bridge, which is connected to the island by a narrow street at its northern tip.

Things to see in Kampa

The island’s unique attraction is the Museum Kampa, which exhibits the priceless art collection of Jan and Meda Mladek. Both were tireless supporters of Czech artists and on the death of her husband in 1989, Meda Mladek donated their eclectic artworks to the city of Prague. They are now on public display in a magnificent museum housed in a charmingly renovated mill. Highlights of the collection include bronzes by Cubist sculptor Otto Gutfreund and paintings by abstract art pioneer Frantisek Kupka. Kampa can also boast the shortest street in Prague, at only 27 meters long. In recent years it has also become a place of pilgrimage for Beatles fans all over the world, who come to see the famous graffiti on the Lennon Wall, dedicated to the memory of John Lennon. This romantic island is also the perfect place to enjoy a scenic walk with uninterrupted views over Prague’s historic skyline.

Good for couples

Kampa offers a peaceful, picturesque escape from the bustle of the city center. Its quaint streets and riverside walks lend themselves perfectly to exploring hand in hand with someone special. Home to painters and poets, this atmospheric neighborhood also has its dark secrets—the so-called Devil’s Stream that separates Kampa from the mainland is reputed to have been named after a shrewish woman who lived in a house known as the Seven Devils. The island is also famous for its exclusive gourmet restaurants, where you can share a secluded table and maybe spot a famous face among your fellow diners.
