Flood in Prague 2002
In 2002, Kampa has been affected by the floods. The water was so destructive that people tried to stop it with a huge amount of bags filled with sand. Unfortunately, the stream was too strong and they couldn´t have defended coming disaster. Most of the buildings were seriously damaged, some of them had to be pulled down. It´s said to be the biggest flood after the so called Big Flood in 1845. The flood affected all Prague, the metro was closed and people had to find their own way to get to work or they just stayed at home. It took a long time to return the city to a previous state and on some of the buildings we can still see the signs of this destructive flood from 2002.
