Letná Park (Letenské Sady)
Visitors to Letná Park can make like a local and explore the sprawling park by bike, Segway, e-bike, or scooter—you can join a guided tour that takes in multiple other Prague attractions or explore independently by renting a vehicle from a tour operator. Those looking for refreshment can stop for a drink in the beer garden, which is always teeming with visitors during the summer months.
For coffee and cake, or perhaps an evening meal, head to the Hanavský Pavilion; this cast-iron, pseudo-Baroque building was constructed at the end of the 19th century and provides some of the best views of the city from its terraces.
Things to know before you go
- Letná Park offers excellent views and is a great choice for travelers looking to take a break from sightseeing

How to get there
Just a 15-minute walk, over the Charles Bridge, from Old Town Square, Letná Park is easily accessible from the center. If traveling by Prague Metro, take Line A to Malostranská (a 10-minute walk), or take tram number 1, 8, 25, or 26 to Letenské náměstí (a 12-minute walk).
When to get there
The park’s expansive lawns are perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun on a summer’s day—possibly the best and certainly the most popular time to visit. Letná Park is, however, open year-round, 24 hours a day.
The giant arm of the Prague Metronome has been swinging back and forth in Letná Park since its construction in 1991. This unique monument sits on the site where a large statue of Joseph Stalin was erected in 1955. The statue was destroyed in 1962, and now the Metronome takes its place upon a marble plinth that was used as the base for the original monument.
