Letná Park 3.0 rating

  Nature and Parks

The Letná Park is on a high plateau just north of and above the city center. Therefore, it was the place where the massive Stalin's Monument, overlooking the city, was unveiled in 1955. It was the world's largest representation of Stalin, featuring the Soviet leader in front of a line of workers - it was nicknamed 'Fronta na maso' or 'Meat Queue' by locals, as this was a time when such queues were a daily part of life in the city. In the 1962, the monument was demolished and the place were vacant till the end of the communist era. After the Velvet Revolution, a giant, functional Prague Metronome was built on the spot.
