The Letna Park „Letenske sady“ (right the end of the Ovenecka street) – you can find here a manor house Letenský Chateau, now used as a restaurant and the oldest floored preserved carrousel in Europe, currently under renovation.
But the real attraction is The Letna Park beer garden - one of the largest and most popular beer gardens in Prague with a fantastic view of the city. Garden lied in front of the chateau. Evening spent here is an iconic Prague experience.
The extensive Letna Park with mature trees, colorful bushes the hillsides, and a long plane tree-lined avenue provides not only a pleasant sit and relax, but also unique views of the city, for example from the Brussel Pavilion.
The Expo 58 Pavilion (Brussel Pavilon) offers breathtaking views of Prague, as well as the gorgeous glass curves of. Next to the gigantic Metronome occupies a symbolic spot on the map of Prague as a monument to Joseph Stalin overlooked the city. The monument earned the nickname “the meat queue”. It was demolished by dynamite in 1962, many years after his death. The seven-ton Metronome was installed in 1991 and was meant to be a symbol of the new era. The area surrounding it is now a paradise for skateboarders.
The Hanau Pavilion, a pseudo-Baroque metal structure, is representative example of cast-iron construction. Today, the pavilion functions as a restaurant with a panoramic summer terrace that offers another fascinating look from the bird\'s eye view - at famous Prague bridges and towers in their historical beauty.
The National Technical Museum (Kostelní 42 street) - monumental functionalist building close to Letna Park, highly recommended to all who are even slightly interested in science and technology; its biggest attractions include amazing historical automobiles and airplanes, but even cooler are the ore and coal mines in the museum’s underground spaces – accessible only by booking in advance.
For those who seeking more experiential or interactive exhibitions, can be recommended visiting the National Agriculture Museum (Kostelní 42 street), where you can learn more about hunting, fishing, and agricultural technology. In summer, they’re opening a “picnic café” on the museum’s grassy roof.
National Gallery in Prague (Dukelských hrdinů 47 street) - the first Functionalist building in Prague. Today it serves the needs of the National Gallery - a unique collection of Czech and international modern and contemporary art, it includes some extremely valuable examples of French and European art, including important works by such illustrious names as Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh, Gustav Klimt and many more.
Royal Game Park „Stromovka Park“ (left the end of the Ovenecka street) is a large green oasis in the middle of town with mature trees, water and grassy areas. The lovely Governor‘s Summer Palace overlooking the oldest and most extensive park in Prague formed in 13centures. In the park, you can stroll past ponds or take a break under century-old oaks; then cross just two pedestrian bridges, and you‘ll find yourself in the lush green neighborhood of Troja, where you have a choice of visiting the Botanical Garden, the Zoo, or taking a tour of the Baroque Troja Chateau.
The Prague Castle - an ancient symbol and monument of the Czech State is in walking distance (900 m) from my place - you can start from Letna Park (Letna's elevation and location afford commanding views of the Prague Old Town) and go through a little pedestrian bridge above the narrow street and you can find yourself in Chotkovy sady. There are Royal Summer Palace, garden with singing fountain. Have a look at the area of the Queen Anne’s Summer Palace (Belvedere) and then you can not overlook the Prague Castle monument.
The National Museum – Lapidary (Výstaviště 67)
You can see the exhibition "Sculpture Monuments in Bohemia from the 11th to the 19th century", monuments from houses demolished during urban renewal, Gothic sculptures from the Parléř workshop, the Marian column from the Old Town Square in Prague, and the original seven sculptures from Charles Bridge, including Matyáš Bernard Braun's Vision of St Luitgard.
How to reach the historic centrum?
You can walk over Letna Park (Letenske sady) to reach the small bridge over the road (only for walkers or bikes) and you are in Chotek Gardens (Chotkovy sady). There is a beautifull Royal Summer Palace (Belveder) very closed to Prague Castle - a monument of Czech State. Down from the Castle is a very old district of Prague "Mala Strana" with a special spirit of the Middle Ages. You can go down to reach the river "Vltava", cross the Charles Bridge to be in the Old Town with the authentic atmosphere of old Prague.
This walking takes abou a half of hour (by fresch walking :-).
The second possibility is going by tram numer 12 (tram-stop is about 100 m from my place) to the "Chotkovy sady" stop to reach the Prague Castle or to "Malostranska"stop beetveen "Mala Strana and the river Vltava or to "Malostranske namesti" to be in the centrum of a special spirit of the Middle Ages.
The trip by tram no.12 looks like sightseeing ride from my place (letenske namesti) to the tram stop „Ujezd“ where you can see cableway to the hill „Petrin“ (the park of love especially in May).
