The area
Address
Neighborhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

While this place in particular is mentioned in all the Top 10 places to visit in Prague, it just needs a few seconds while in Kampa island. The best way to see it is through a restaurant. I was lucky that the latter was empty, so I managed to take a photo of the penguins.

34 yellow penguins are standing in the line on a metal beam along the Vltava river near Kampa Park.

The work was created by the Cracking Art Group, a Milan-based art movement. The penguins are all made from recycled bottles.

The penguins are warning against the dangers of climate change and plastic consumption.

Chanced upon this while strolling along the river at Kampa Island. Interesting but nothing special. Just a Photo stop.

Loads of yellow plastic penguins in a row that light up at night. Created by the Cracking Art Group, this is 'a warning against the dangers of climate change and plastic consumption' - good way to do it!

We really were not expecting to come upon these but at dusk whilst walking through Kampa Park we noticed the bright yellow glow coming from the River Vltava. There are 34 of the penguins made from recycled plastic. This city is full of surprises and these are more pleasant than the babies beside them!

This is site you can see from nearly everywhere along the Vltava, but gets little attention. At night, the 34 penguins stand guard along the shore lit from within begging for a photo. Many are not aware but they are made from recycled plastics, Definitely worth walking to see close up. Or, take a night cruise on the river and go right beside them from a different view.

We happened upon this art installation by accident, i think it would have been better to view it at night. But still fun.

Not worth seeing unless in the area, but they are right next to the crawling baby sculptures.

Best seen either from the water on a river cruise or from the bar they are located next to

Saw them twice, once during cruise and second time next to the crawling babies so you can see them from Kampa park and get a great view of the charles bridge with them..
