Letná park
Not a lot of people know that Prague is built on seven hills. This adds up to some exceptional views of the city. One that raises the hair on your arms every time is Letná, located in Prague’s seventh district just around the corner from Prague Castle and on the left side of the Vltava River. Elevated above the city on a long plain, the park includes one of Prague’s most popular beer gardens, paths for running or strolling, and a number of top architecture sites like the neo-Baroque Hanavský Pavilion, the glass and steel Expo 58 pavilion, which won then-Czechoslovakia the top prize in the 1958 World’s Fair in Brussels, or the Metronome, which sits on a paved pavilion where a massive statue of Stalin once stood. But the view is the highlight. Like that postcard perfect image you have of a European city in your head, the panorama looks out to Prague’s succession of bridges, Prague Castle, and an expansive view spanning from the TV tower to Petřín tower.
