Letna Park, Prague
(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Ride the oldest carousel in Europe at Letna Park, and then look for the marble pedestal with a metronome that used to be the base of a large statue of Stalin. Another notable features is a cast-iron pavilion in Neo-Baroque style built for the 1891 World Fair. The park, built on a plateau above steep riverbanks, offers commanding views of the old town. Look for a plain next to the park; that's where people demonstrated against the communist government during the Velvet Revolution in 1989. Stop for a drink at the beer garden, a shady area with lots of picnic tables and a small playground. Using our online itinerary creator, Prague attractions like Letna Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We planned a subway route to the park and accidently walked to it right from the Astronomical Square as it's barely a 10 minute walk from there ! A place where I reccomend a day time and post sunset v...  more »
  • The Letna Hill extends from the right bank of the Vltava River to the slopes of Hradcany. You can easily reach from Cechuv most where there are stairs that lead up to the metronome that marks the time and great platform where kids perform with skateboarding. From here you can enjoy the sunset while sipping a beer. Walking toward the center of the public garden you'll notice several picnic areas, flowerbeds and expansive lawns. The neo-Baroque building Hanavsky Pavillion which houses a restaurant you can enjoy a beautiful view of the river and its bridges.

  • The park is worth a look at, you have there-absolutely free-the most beautiful views of the old Prague. Stalin once stood there one of the largest images in the world, is only the pedestal.
