Shooters Island, Prague

4.4
#10 of 49 in Parks in Prague
Nestled under one of the city's many bridges, Shooters Island attracts romantic souls with its old-time atmosphere, shaded green lawns, and scenic views of the old town. Often compared to Venice, the island owes its name to longbow and crossbow shooters who used to train here in the 15th century. In the 19th century, the island witnessed a busy social life filled with balls, concerts, and cabaret performances. Today, visitors come for the many cultural events, including open-air theater screenings, concerts, and free parties. A park covers most of the island, but the north bank boasts a small beach from which you can watch swans or go paddleboarding.

  • It is possible to get off from the middle of the bridge in the middle state of the Voldava River. The island is lined with trees and small diameters in between, and it feels good to see the views of both banks of the Voldava River while walking slowly.

  • ... Island in the Vltava, certainly worth a visit to relax and escape the tourist hustle and bustle.
