Something is always going on at Slovansky Island on the Vltava river. It is a green oasis of comfort and excellent gastronomy in the heart of Prague. We spend our summers outside in the beautiful space of our covered outdoor restaurant located between the Zofín Palace and a romantic gazebo. Slovansky Island has always been a centre of the Prague social scene and culture. Irrespective of your reason to visit it – a stroll in the park, children’s play date, a concert, ball or another social gathering at the Palace, the Zofin Garden will alway have something to offer. Pop in for a glass of tasty wine from Moravia or treat yourselves to an exotic cocktail. If you get hungry and order something from our grill, you will certainly want to wash it down with a glass of exceptional Czech beer on tap.
