Kampa Island View Points
Liechtenstein Palace on Kampa
The Lichtenštejnský palác on Kampa Island is one of two palaces in Prague that formerly belonged to the Princely Family of Liechtenstein.
The Kampa Island palace has occasionally hosted events, but it is the more centrally-located “Lichtenštejnský palác”, the Liechtenstein Palace on the Malostranské náměstí, now a music conservatory, which is better known as a concert venue.
Yellow Penguens Prague
The yellow penguins by the Cracking Art Group made an appearance on a metal beam over the Vltava River in late 2016. Technically a part of an exhibition by the Museum Kampa, they light up at night.
One of Prague’s most unique museums, Museum Kampa is dedicated to modern European art. The museum houses a significant collection of works by František Kupka and by Otto Gutfreund, one of the country’s most renowned sculptors. In addition to paintings, expect huge red dogs, a giant chair over the river, and other very unique displays.
The canal that runs under Charles Bridge and through Kampa is known as Certovka River, While you can’t walk alongside the canal, boat tours will take you along it so you can snap pictures of the old houses many of which are former mills flanking it.
