Tips from the community

These 34 yellow penguins created by six international artists march along at Kampa Park, and are made entirely of recycled materials. Their reflection in the water is a reminder that our polluting habits affect animals everywhere.

  • Where to find Prague’s quirkiest art

    travelfreak (Jeremy Foster)
    You’ll only spend a few hours in beautiful Prague before you realize that the fairytale city isn’t just about perfectly preserved Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. Beneath that pretty surface is a quirky, tongue-in-cheek, politically-charged art scene with some unforgettable pieces scattered around the city. Local artist David Černý is one of the most noteworthy appearances on this list, as his edgy (and often controversial) pieces are renowned around the world. But there’s a lot more to discover too, from colorful street art to eerie statues to graffiti-covered walls. Some are found close to other historic highlights; others will take a little more work to find. That’s half the fun!
