Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Prague 5 - Smichov - kampa2
Great and spacious apartment with good amenities and a good floorplan. Situated across the river from National Theatre and 10 min walk from Charles Bridge, close to the Vltava river bank. Great location in Mala Strana.
This light and spacious 3 bedroom apartment is situated only 10 minutes away from Charles Bridge. Just imagine you and your close ones enjoying an aperitif after a whole day of sight-seeing or having a siesta in the comfy sofas. Yes, wandering through Prague can be tiring and that is why it is important to have an apartment close enough so you can pop in anytime you want. Relaxation is essential to get enough energy for exploring all the beauties of Prague as well as the bars and restaurants that open at night. Also thanks to this great location, you will not need a taxi to get home after a late night, since most of the best spots are 20 minutes walking distance away.
Another advantage of the Kampa2 apartment is its equipment. If you are fan of cooking, the Kampa2 kitchen provides everything you need from cocktail shakers to a fondue set, as well as a dishwasher making your stay much easier. On top of that, there is high-speed internet connection and a plasma TV with not only Czech but also foreign channels. Kampa2 was named after a park nearby, on the way to Charles Bridge.
The apartment building is located under the Petrin hill, near the river in the area called Mala Strana. It was built in 1895 by a well-known architect, who built it for himself, explaining its good qualities. Petrin is undoubtedly the best place for those who like visiting tourist attractions as well as having a taste of nature at the same time. Just behind the building is the historical Hunger Wall, which has served to defend Prague. In 1361, the year of drought and poor harvests, the prices of bread increased severely, which left many people without enough food. In order to feed their families, the locals resorted to frequent theft, augmenting the criminal activity. King Charles IV therefore called upon the locals to build a protective wall from Petrin to the Vltava River. The construction took two years and fed many families, resolving the problem. The Prague people named the wall “The Hunger Wall”, because its battlements resembled the teeth of the starving folks building it. At the end of the street is Kinsky Square, known especially for the T34 tank, which commemorated the liberation of Prague by the Soviets in 1944. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989 an artist David Cerny painted it pink. Actually, it was not so much of a political gesture as an attempt to capture the attention of some girl. Later a fountain was built in the original location where the tank stood, but there still a little pink part of it on the square which constantly reminds us of our history. The apartment is also near the French Quarter, only a 5 minute walk from the French Lycée. For those who plan to stay in Prague for a bit longer, will appreciate the proximity to a nearby shopping center called Novy Smíchov, which is only 2 tram stops away. The tram stop (tram line 6, 9, 12, 20, 22) is right in front of the building as well as a bus stop, line 176.
