Northern Line P 2 is the most-used ferry on the Vltava in Prague. Podbaba ferry connects a settlement at the mouth of the Šárka Valley and Lysolaje with creeks and Podhoří on the opposite riverbank in Troja. The ferry was reopened in 2006 and is located just under the tail of the Imperial island/Císařská louka with the complex of Prague sewage plant. Sonically the place is dominated by the Ústí Northern railway line and the road to Roztoky. Soft sounds from flocks of seagulls flying just above the river upstream, once a while silent sound of cormorant circling high above the river, Baba ferry is operated by comp Prague Venice, and it is the boat with access for strollers and wheelchairs.
