This narrow land mass, accessible via stairs from the middle of the Legion Bridge (“Most Legii”), sits basically at water level on the Vltava River. Take a walk to the center of the bridge, roughly parallel to the National Theater, and disappear down below for a quiet stroll under the trees or a moment of reflection on the park benches. Summer often brings free live music, electro-swing dance parties, and outdoor film screenings to this hidden location, but on most days it provides a simple, serene break from the bustling city streets, plus some great photography angles of the surrounding skylines.
