Kampa Island Prague

It is an island in Mala Strana quarter. Kampa island is surrounded by Devil's Stream, an artificial channel dug to power water mills. Kampa is famous for its park and a gallery of modern art. You can see David Cerny statues standing outside. It is a go-to spot for Prague locals, the place where nature, culture and fun meet. Every year on the last day of April, Carodejnice or the "Burning of the Witch" takes place on Kampa island. It is a holiday that has its origin in pagan times, as the witch doll embodies winter, cold, and darkness. People meet to "burn the witch" and welcome summer. Do not worry, this event is always supervised by a fire brigade!
