The area
Neighbourhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

The riverbank is obscured by three giant bronze statues of babies with no faces crawling in a park. There is nothing more to say.

This sculpture of three giant crawling babies is located in the beautiful Kampa Park next to the Mala Strana quarter. The bronze sculptures are made by Czech sculptor David Cerny. More contemporary art can be found in the Kampa Museum next to the sculpture.

If you are an art fan, you will enjoy seeing big babies. You can sit on them, walk on them or stand next to monumental statues. You can visit DOX center of contemporary art where you can enjoy more of his work.

The sculptor David Cerny created giant crawling babies to be placed on the TV Tower in Zizkov. However, while these were seen as good pieces of art, they were ultimately deemed structurally unstable. So they were taken down and more structurally sound replicas put on the tower in their place. The original statues were placed along the River Vltava and can be seen and wandered about by tourists on the river bank.

These are located at the museum in Kampa Park. Interesting structures which is good for a photo stop if time permits.

It really is ugly !

Sculpture by David Cerny. His bizarre , oversized sculptures are all around Prague,
Taking up and ruining perfectly nice grassy corner space in the beautiful Kampa park.

Prague is known for beautiful art ...this is not it !

Just my opinion, of course.

Quirky set of sculptures but definitely worth the visit if you’re on that side of the bridge as it isn’t far from a lot of other sites to see. It is also right next to the river so great views, if just passing through to see them

Weird, but interesting sculptures. Went with friends on our way back to town. It's worth seeing for the sake of seeing it.

Massive statues situated in Kampa Park. They are very strange as they have no faces, more like barcodes where there facial features should be. Having said that, they are in a nice area of the city and they nicely fill in a gap of the park!
