Letná Park (in Czech Letenské sady) is a large park on Letná hill, built on a plateau above steep embankments along the Vltava River in Prague, Czech Republic. Letná’s elevation and location afford commanding views of the Prague Old Town (Staré Město).

History of Letna Park

In 1955, a large monument to Joseph Stalin was build at the edge of Letná Park. After 7 years later this statue was destroyed (1962) and the Prague Metronome now occupies the site.

Velvet Revolution time at Letna

During the Velvet Revolution, a plain next to the Letná Park (Letenská pláň) was the site of some important demonstrations against the Communist government. On the 25th and 26 November 1989 approximately 750,000 people protested in here. These protests were followed by a general nationwide strike on 27 November 1989.

  1. Park is so beautiful, full of the view points to the Prague. All the bridges are seeing very well. Park is well organized. During the summer you can have parties there, tables and cafe are available. Also you can find here Metronome, monument located on the hill, from where you can see the whole city. There is some trash around the monument as a lot of people spending their time there. Also along the road below you can find artwal whixh is my favorite
