Mala Strana's Kampa Island is one of the most popular places in Prague and is visited by millions of people every year. However, few of them can know as much about Kampa as our guide in this week's Spotlight, preservationist Martin Krise. Mr Krise shows us the ruins of the precursor to the Charles Bridge, the Judith Bridge, tells us where we can find a decently-priced beer, and discusses some of the issues which make Prague preservationists see red. And you may be surprised to learn who created Kampa park. That's all in Spotlight with Ian Willoughby.
Tourists who came to Prague in the last two years may have been disappointed to find one of the most prominent monuments closed for visitors. The steel lookout tower on Petrin Hill was under reconstruction. First built 111 years ago for the Czech Jubilee Exhibition, the Czech version of the famous Eiffel Tower is offering a magnificent view of Prague once again. Pavla Horakova reports.
