Plastic bottles, bags, and beer cans cover this part of the island, which is popular with tourists and locals as well. The trash can also be seen from Charles Bridge.

According to magistrates in Prague 1, the land is under the responsibility of the Vltava River Basin. Veronika Blažková, the spokesperson for Prague 1, said: “Prague 1 will be addressing this issue so that the place will be cleaned as soon as possible. While it is not under our jurisdiction, we will appeal for the cleaning to be done, Prague 1 will or provide it”. 

Hugo Roldan, a spokesman from Vltava River Board, said: “If it is land that is under our management, we will, of course, do everything to make the mess out of the place disappear”
