Dětský Island

Dětský Island (Czech Dětský ostrov — literally Children's Island) is an island on the Vltava River in Prague, Czech Republic. It lies in the Smíchov district of the city.

It is mentioned in texts as early as 1355. Until the 18th century, it was called Maltézský Island (after the owner of the Maltese monastery Panny Marie pod řetězem in the Lesser Quarter). Subsequently, it was named after members of Prague's Jewish community who owned the land – such names include Hykyšův, Funkovský, and Židovský.
