“Beautiful Swans, restful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stroll thru this park, every time we visit from the US. It holds many memories for me, as this area of Prague was my home, before we left the country many years ago. It is a relatively small park with flat grassy areas and benches but it spills out into areas with small shops and restaurants. There is an easy access to the river Vltava from several different places. There are no hills to climb, like on the Petrin park, so its great for resting your tired feet, or just let little kids run around a little, away from the busy streets. It is easily accessed from the Charles bridge. The steps are in the middle of the bridge, or from the Legii bridge, when you are crossing from the National Theatre to Mala Strana. The restaurants there, range in price, the location (view of the river) will play a big part in the cost. The Kampa Park restaurant offers incredible views of the river and Charles bridge. We had dinner there, just as the sun was setting - the river and the buildings across looked beautiful, as if painted in gold. The art gallery, that can be seen from the Charles bridge is also nice to visit, we bought couple of paintings there.
My husband took the most beautiful pictures of the swans, you can get really close to the river there. It is a nice place all year round and there are several boutique hotels in the area.

“A nice park surrounded by expensive places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This park is nice. it's a bit small, but I've been here multiple times. It's in a nice area but fairly expensive.

The attraction here would be the street art adorning some surrounding walls and the three David Cerny babies (the same ones climbing up Zizkov Tower) and the surrounding area including the Vltava River which is nice to sit and watch. No reason not to stop here if you're on that side of the river!

“Nice to relax here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Kampa Park is often missed as it's off Charles Bridge & people generally walk past it. But go down the steps into the cobbled area & carry on into the park & you will be pleasantly surprised. If you just want to rest you feet for a while, there are plenty of benches all around the park & it's great to sit & 'people watch'.
It's beautiful in the Autumn when the trees all change colour. There is also an art gallery in the park to visit, also toilets (but you will need some change to use). You can also sit alongside the river/canal & watch the boats going in/out of the locks.

“Beautiful location, wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Dine overlooking the Vltava river and Charles bridge. Fine dining, with a special truffles menu. The place for a special occasion. Expensive, but quality. No goulash and dumplings here.
