Letná Park

Address: Letenské sady, Praha 7-Holešovice, the Czech Republic

Letná Park is not the typical tourist attraction, but a great place for Prague citizens to take a break and relax. People jog, wander and walk the dog; the air is filled with joy in life. If you do not mind exercising a bit, you may take a walk to the viewing platform in the park. The platform overlooks the three bridges across the Vltava, allowing you to admire the scenery of the Old Town in one off .


Next to the viewing platform, there is a giant metronome erected in 1991. Designed by the international artist Vratislav Novak, the metronome has a cable, which is hung with sneakers of different sizes, attached to it. Youngsters love sitting under the shoes to chat and view the scenery in twos and threes. What a great way to enjoy the relaxing time in the Old Town!
