Shooters Island, Prague

4.5
#11 of 24 in Nature in Bohemia
Island Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
