Kampa, Prague: 47 reviews and 86 photos
Kampa is an artificial island at Mala Strana suburb – one side of island is bordered by Vltava River, other one – by artificial channel named Devil’s Stream (Certovka). The name of channel is based on story that here once lived sharp-tongued woman. The channel was used (nowadays survived as well) to power water mills.
Campa is actually “field”, it was named by Spanish soldiers at 17th century. They located camp here during Battle of White Mountain.
Actually place here is quite romantic, with green scenery, panorama to other side of Vltava (old town), here funny sculpture of babies is located.
Directions: Lesser Town.
