Letna Park, Prague

(4.5/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • We wanted to have a look at simply the Letná Park, then landed at the "metronome", and have enjoyed the great view of the city from there. Many young people and even skaters seem mainly to take advantage of this park.
