Kampa: an island of creativity


The pleasures of artistic life and creation are both to be found in the tiny cobblestoned streets of Kampa Island and in its museum of modern and contemporary Czech art.

Descend the Charles Bridge's stairs on the Malá Strana side and discover the magical world of Kampa Island, considered the most beautiful urban island in the world after Paris' Ile Saint-Louis.

Savour the magical charm of a stroll along romantic side streets and the former addresses of numerous Czech artistic personalities. Admire the watermills of houses dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, then head towards the Jan and Meda Mládek Foundation's Kampa Museum for magnificent proof of the intense creative output of Czech and Slovak artists banned under the Communist regime.

There are also works by Cubist precursor Otto Gutfreund and abstractionist pioneer František Kupka.
