    Bars on Letna

    by jankonas Written Feb 26, 2014

    There are two outdoor bars where you can see Prague and the river Vltava. In warm weather it's a great place to chill out with your friends when it's getting dark. One of my favorite places to hang out in summer.

    Letna Hill in Prague is known for its vibrant beer garden overlooking the river and provides some of the best views of one of Europe’s most charming cities. The park is worth going to just for that. Thee views are stunning!

    Letna Park is a large restful park on Letna hill, built on a plateau above steep embankments along the Vltava River.

    The most dominant and unusual object in the park is the giant Metronome.

    At the western entrance of the park sits the beautiful cast-iron pseudo-Baroque Hanavsky pavilion (1891). The pavilion is now a popular restaurant. May be too much popular and touristy but it's the best spot to take pictures of the Prague Bridges.

    The oldest functioning carousel in Europe is also located in the Letna Park.

    We absolutely loved this park!

    Letna is a park on a promontory on the high bank of Vltava, directly opposite of Josefov. It used to be a site of the largest statue in the world of the Soviet dictator Iosif Stalin, which was blasted away when his successor convinced the current Czech leadership to do so. Now there is a modern sculpture on its site.

    Right below it there is a very beautiful bridge that should not be missed. It reminded me of the Russian bridge in Paris.

    The Bridge's of Prague

    Letna Park is where the Metronome resides. However go up there, and head off towards the Castle (but not that far). This is where you will get the best views of Prague from, indeed this is the stereotypical view of Prague, but it took me a little while to find it as I went up Petrin Hill first only to be disappointed.

    I think the best time to go up is a little while before sunset, and probably on the longer days of the year so that the sun gives the best lighting. Whilst you are up there, look for all the bridges and there different uses. The one nearest has a tram going over and a boat about to go under. The second nearest is Charles Bridge, which is a pedestrian only bridge (and Prague’s most famous bridge).

    Rollerblading in Letna Park

    A popular place to skate in Prague is Letna Park. We start just below Prague Garden's Belvedere Summer House and skate along the whole length of Letna Park, past the metronome(which should be there for another year or so before being turned into an aquarium). We finish at the eastern end of the park and catch the tram from Sparta to Hradcanska Metro.
