Letná Hill
Letná, Prague 7

The Letná Hill is the one with the strange metronome on top, which you can see clearly from in front of the Hotel Intercontinental at the end of Pařížská Street, or simply from the Dvořákovo nábřeží embankment. Some areas of the park, including around the metronome, are surprisingly unmaintained and messy, whereas other areas are taken care of and landscaped.

Getting There

To get to the top of Letná (to the metronome), cross the Čechův most bridge, cross the street, and climb the stairs that you will see right in front of you.

A Skateboarder on Letná HillWhat to Do on Letná

One reason to climb the hill is to get a beautiful view of Prague and the Vltava River with its bridges. The park itself is large and very popular with skateboarders, rollerbladers and cyclists for whom the majority of the paths seem to have been built. Walking along these paths can be a bit unnerving on the weekend, especially if you have a dog or kids with you. You can take your kids to one of the playgrounds though.
