Our tour guide on the Sandemans New Europe Tour told us to visit this. It's set in a beautiful park and the view from the top is amazing. It's easily accesible and worth the walk for the lazy ones

I "enjoyed" the walk up the stairs to get to the park and was rewarded by the outstanding views of the city. I thought it was a very cool attraction. It was erected in 1991, on the plinth left vacant by the destruction in 1962 of an enormous monument to former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.

Take a trip up if you've got some time to kill. Stunning park and views up there. However if you're only going up to see the Metronome and it's history it is a little lacking in explanation. Although google did the trick for us ha!

Across the river from the Jewish Quarter, high on a hill , Letna Park overlooks the city. Twenty years after the Czech Republic was founded; the Nazi's were dominating Europe. Prague was fortunate to have very little damage after the WWII but it became a socialist republic.It was on this plateau that armies gathered to attack Prague Castle. During the... More

If you want to save money and have a great view over the city, you should definitely climb up here and drink a cold beer while enjoying this beautiful outlook! Besides there might be some music/events taking place in the evenings !

The metronome itself isn't much to look at. The views of the city are spectacular. It seems that the area was built for a purpose, however skate boarders have all but destroyed the granite steps and walls. There's graffiti everywhere and the few steps that are still in place have the edge worn off from skaters. There's a large park... More

Originally built to house a monument to Stalin, the Metronome sits high above Prague and marks the passage of time as the city grows. Beyond is a park which houses great street food and beer gardens and a generally pleasant place to sit and reflect or relax. Many skateboarders hang around the promenade, but there is enough room that it... More

Metronome - it was suppose to symbolize the passage of time. But It never seems to work! Over the years I have been many times and I have yet to see it move. I think the area is getting progressively worse. It is a pity, this is one of the best pieces of land in Prague. Such amazing views. That... More

Not sure if it only moves at certain times of the day/month/year or what, but when we went it wasn't moving - which was a bit disappointing since we'd gone out of our way to see it.

We went there on a recommendation from our CS hosts. It was worth it! From the castle you can arrive walking, it only takes about 15min max. Also there was Mexican street food and other guys selling draft beer. The tacos were great! And there was people dancing swing giving to the place a even more colourful touch. Highly recommended!...

Staying in Josefov

Neighbourhood Profile
Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighbourhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small enough that a person could touch the houses on both sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this neighbourhood carries in its legacy as Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Nearby streets are full of kosher restaurants, museums and antique bookstores.
