We are pleased to announce that as of today (May 25, 2020), the operation at the Sokol Troja camp is returning to normal tracks and, according to a government order, we can have and we are also open. We look forward to you!
And don’t forget – Prague is completely depopulated, you may never experience such a Prague without tourists. See for yourself in our gallery (photos from May 23, 2020):
The current condition caused by the COVID-19 disease caused by a new type of coronavirus has unveiled the beauties of Prague in an unprecedented way. Places that were practically non-stop crowded with tourists from all over the world are now completely empty. Prague without tourists can once again breathe with its undeniable charm on lonely visitors. You can soak up the atmosphere of one of the oldest preserved cities in the world with a city center within the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prague from the height of Prague Castle, Prague from the bridge deck of Charles Bridge, Prague with the most breathtaking Jewish monuments that you will not find anywhere else in the world. And yourself – without millions of tourists.
We think that this chance will never be repeated for you. Use it.
And of course – stop by our campsite or hostel. If nothing changes, according to the current government regulation, we open next week – on Monday, May 25, 2020. The lawn has been mowed, restaurant is open, you – our guests – remain.
During this challenging coronavirus period, positive news is slow. We are very pleased that we now have one good news for you, the guests of the camp, the hostel, but also the other “Trojaks” – citizens and residents of the Prague Troja district.
The news is that after about a year, the restaurant in Sokolovna is reopened, for a time now from 12 noon to 6 pm. Serving food through the window, if you can’t see anyone, ring the bell please. The food selection is quite wide and they are tasty.
On weekdays you can come a little earlier, about 11:30.
We do not yet know when we will be able to open our Camp and Hostel for you. Everything is ready for operation immediately. The latest government proposal to open accommodation here in Czech Republic is starting on May 25, 2020. If you are planning a vacation, we will be happy if you spend some time with us. If the government of the Czech Republic allows accommodation earlier, we will open immediately. Please follow our website, Instagram or Facebook for hot-news.
Furthermore, we would like to inform you about the decision of the Prague Troja district to cancel the accommodation fee until September 30, 2020. Your holiday with us will therefore be a bit cheaper.
We look forward to you!
And please don’t forget that there is still the possibility of paid parking on the campsite.
In accordance with the binding instructions of the Government of the Czech Republic, we cannot sell accommodation services. If you find yourself in a situation where you hang with your vehicle or caravan without the possibility of returning home, nobody will drive you out of our camp. You can add fresh water to the caravan and possibly drain the used one or empty the chemical toilet. The electrical connections are in operation.
In such an emergency, please inform us in advance by phone at +420797848440.
We look forward to you in health at any time later.
We would like to remind you that since July 2019 we are the new operator of hostel in Camp Sokol Troja. In total you can stay in 13 rooms of different disposition. You can find more about the hostel on a separate Hostel page.
And to give you a better idea about the Hostel “you are going to”, we published a set of photos from the hostel interior. You can find them at the bottom of the Hostel room offer page. By the end of the year we would like to start renting room no. 5, which is currently the TJ Sokol Troja office. There will be a nice double or quadruple room, which is not much in the hostel.
Do not forget that the campsite Sokol Troja itself is still open, even though some other campsites in our legendary street are already closed. 😉 You can come to us with your caravans and wohnmobiles. Recent autumn photos of the camp can be seen in the post Even in the autumn the camp works.
Do not be mistaken, the season in the camp Sokol Troja did not end with the end of summer. It’s autumn, the more we have space for your caravans, cars etc. Prague is also nice in autumn, fewer people, less heat – it has its advantages. And don’t forget – this year the camp has a new operator, new bathrooms, showers, toilets including wheelchair accessible. The facade at the rear of the building is currently being repaired.
Unfortunately, the restaurant, which is part of the campsite, is still out of service. That is why we have refrigerated Pilsen, Kozel bier or a can of Coca Cola in the reception.
See for yourself that in Prague you simply cannot live elsewhere(photos from October 31st, 2019):
Dear visitors, today we have a news about your hygiene. 😉
This week we proceeded to further increase the comfort of your stay in the camp Sokol Troja. Simply – we bought a new washing machine. It replaces the old one no longer functional. Please come with the laundry to the campsite reception. We will assist you with washing and also with the controls and washing machine programs.
We wish you a nice summer if possible with a partial stay in our camp.
Unfortunately, the restaurant, which is part of the campsite, is currently out of order, so take a good chilled pint of Pilsen, Kozel or a third of Coca Cola. Available at reception every day from 7 am to 8 pm.
And a place for your caravans and tents? Don’t worry. You will not find such atmosphere elsewhere.

Camp Sokol Troja is situated in the picturesque part of Prague 7 in Troja, surrounded by a number of unique monuments and interesting places worthy of your attention. So we decided to invite you to visit the surroundings, when the season is in full swing. Especially you should visit the Troja Chateau, which is only about 600 m from our camp.
You can go for a walk there along the river Vltava where you will not be disturbed by any cars . As you will go on a cycle path, along the Vltava rapids towards the place where the Troja footbridge used to be. Instead of the Trojan footbridge, which has not yet been restored, an electric ferry boat runs to Císařský ostrov.
If you like the connection of the place you go through with a bit of history, we recommend you a walk from the Praha neznámá portal (Prague Unknown), which is dedicated to the former settlement of Rybáře in the closest neigborhood of Troja Chateau in Troja. By the way, you can also use the web site Praha neznámá as an inspiration for your next walk around our capital. You can find here maps, where the interesting locality can best go through, so you will not miss anything, lots of photos with unknown views, history of the locality, stories of locals and customs, as well as a unique imprint of the author of the whole project – Petr Rysky. Eventually you can also pay for a walk with a guide or buy one of the books Prague Unknown I, II., III.
If you are interested in the surroundings of the Vltava River (and we are sure of that) and you will go up the river, you will find countless places for rest and refreshment kiosks right in the area of the canoeing area and in its surroundings. You can sit here, have ice cream, drink, even buy sausages and roast them on fire.
See the Vltava river’s atmosphere in photos:
But do not forget to go down the river to the original destination – Troja Château – the gardens and the tour is worth it. The castle is surrounded by a large castle garden with many ornamental and fruit trees and a small natural maze decorated with fountains, terracotta vases, stucco brochures and orangery with imperial busts. The chateau (owned by the Prague City Galery) is open to the public, including the garden. The Prague City Galery makes seasonal exhibitions here from April to October every year. In the castle interior you can see a unique fresco decoration of the rooms.
You can go back to our camp Sokol Troja, for example, along Trojská Street – where our camp is located and which is surrounded by Troja Castle. Right at the corner of Troja Castle you will go past the Na Kovárně grocery store where you can shop. Next to the shop is a picturesque café with a pastry shop, where you can sit inside and in a small outdoor garden right on the street. Just in this street (Pod Havránkou) you will find the remains of the Rybáře settlement mentioned in Praha neznámá (Prague Unknown).
you take a trip back from Trojská to street Nad Kazankou, you can
admire here the magnificent not only diplomatic villas in the vast
gardens, which are countless in the area. From Nad Kazankou Street
you can then take one of the connections back down to Trojská
if you did not turn away from street Trojská during your afternoon
or evening walk, we recommend you to have a dinner in the Ristorante
& pizzeria Del Corso, located in Trojská 173b. From here it is
only 250 m to the camp.
