Shooters Island, Prague

4.4
#11 of 48 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.

  • I adored this island as a place of relaxation after the daily visits. It is especially the fact that it is in the middle of the River, there are many benches and you may even get on the grass to relax. C was a barge on the side with a beer garden open which also offered the hour live dj set appetizer, beer at €2 and view of the Charles Bridge. D summer really enjoyable.

  • During our visit to Prague we and his wife stopped here as well. This is an ideal place to relax. I recommend to take a snack, spread out on the shore and uživať it. A beautiful place with a panorama of parádnou, serenity, and here-there's some kind of kačičkou and ľabuťou. There's a lot of trees, so that even in the greatest heat is on this fantastic island. If you need a break from walking and horka in Prague, so be sure to stop by here.
