Alan Rogers Review
Kotva is pleasantly situated directly by the River Vltava and has been subject to heavy flooding in the past, which destroyed some buildings and most of the trees. There is clearly a continuing risk of flooding, so care should be taken when visiting this site. The 50 touring pitches are on level grass with hardstanding and 6A electricity, with a separate grass area for tents. Drainage may be poor in wet weather. None of the pitches are marked out and it does become crowded in high season, particularly with motorcaravans. The site is owned by a sports club and sanitary arrangements are in the main club building which also houses offices and accommodation.
It is 20 minutes by public transport from Prague city centre. With a motorway and a railway line on the opposite bank of the river, there is traffic and train noise. It is best to use the good, cheap public transport for visiting Prague as parking is very limited and illegally parked cars are swiftly towed away. A well run site, English is spoken at reception and a porter is on duty at night at the entrance.
Toilet facilities are provided in the nearby hostel. No chemical disposal. Restaurant (in private hands and open all year). Fishing and boating on river. Tennis. Exchange facilities.
