Kampa island., Prague, Czech Republic
Kampa Island Prague Reviews
A quiet place. Feb 02, 2017
On this island (or better, it is a peninsula) there is a nice park and a beautiful and large square; Na Kampe. There are also several restaurants, cafes, shops and the famous Lennon Wall.
It is separated from Màla Strana by a narrow artificial channel called the Devil's Stream (Certovka); a waterway dug to power watermills.The origin of its name is unknown. The stream was probably called after the house “At the Seven Devils” which stood there or probably because of a naughty woman who lived near that channel.
Kampa Island is one of the quietest area in Prague.

Spend some time on Kampa Island, which is just off of Charles Bridge. Walk through the park and enjoy the view of the bridge and across the river. Spend the rest of the day strolling through the picturesque streets of Malá Strana.
Take the funicular up to the top of Petřín Hill for some great views and a nice stroll through the rose garden
Explore the Vinohrady district, known for its Art Nouveau and Neo-Renaissance architecture
Escape the crowds and enjoy some of Prague's parks and gardens
A quiet oasis with a good restaurant (Kampa island) very close to the bustle of Charles Bridge. Also worth a visit is the Kafka Museum, 5 mins walk away .
Loved the area, and especially the little streets, and the John Lennon 'peace' wall. Lots of cute cafes and interesting shops once you are out of the main thoroughfare.
