Letna Park, Prague

4.5
#5 of 42 in Parks in Prague
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.

  • Huge park in Prague with a beer garden in the center which does very cheap beer and cider in plastic cups so you can take your drinks wherever you want to in the park. We went here both nights we were...  more »
  • This Park is beautifully and beautiful! Away from the tourists, you can admire Prague by drinking a beer or cider in the middle of the inhabitants and the skaters! Little fun thing: shoes hanging from power lines!

  • We went up to the park one evening while in Prague. The trek up the steps was daunting but it was worth it for the views and the pints of beer at about 1 euro. Lots of action and people having fun.  more »

  • Well worth the easy climb via the steps or ramp. With easy walks or all abilities. Stunning views of the city. Would recommend you take binoculars to really appreciate the panoramic views.
  • Definitely get you step counts up with the climb up, but we'll worth the view. Park is standard, put it attracts a good mixture of people just chilling to the views. Good place to meet fellow travellers and locals. Has a good night life too.
  • What a great way to spend an afternoon or the whole day! The climb up was pretty exhausting but worth the views and biergarden! We spent the day just hanging out on the benches drinking beers and eating food and enjoying the outdoors. I would highly recommend as it has some great views of the city! The only issue was the washroom you have to pay for and it's not bad but not the best. Also recommend bringing some cash if you're getting food/drinks here
  • Beautiful view on the city. The metronome and its story are worth knowing. Castle's gardens are better for a romantic walk
  • Although the facilities are poor, this is a popular local hangout of many young locals - especially those who skateboard. Despite the short steep hike up to the top from the Prague city level, the view is well worth it. Sip a beer while you take it all in and reflect on how great life is.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
