5 river islands to discover in Prague

1) Střelecký Island

There is a small sandy beach on the northern tip, a unique spot where the river sings louder than the city. The spired building on the right bank is home to the museum of Bedřich Smetana, a composer who was inspired by the Vltava River for his famous symphonic poem.
