Shooters Island, Prague

(75 reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • On a sunny day it is very empty and beautiful. A great getaway from the crowds and romantic break not too far a walk away  more »
  • As many other place so we happened upon most end up here but spent a morning to stroll around and take some pictures and tillagande Café, next no people there either which was nice to have a little private space. recommended
