Stromovka (place of trees) Park is the largest of its kind in the city of Prague.
Stromovka (place of trees) Park is the largest of its kind in the city of Prague. The history of Stromovka dates back to 1268, when Premysl Otakar II used Stromovka as the royal hunting grounds. The park was open to the public in 1804, after Czech nobles saved the grounds from complete demolishment from the reign of Maria Theresa who ordered everything cut and burned. The park is no longer full of deer to hunt; the park now features paths for inline skating, romantic ponds, large meadows, a few cafes, and even horse stables. Stromovka is the perfect place to take a Sunday afternoon stroll with your family and friends.
The Letná Park is on a high plateau just north of and above the city center

The Spanish Synagogue, so-called because Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain at the end of the 15th century built a previous synagogue on this site, is a wild combination of neo-Renaissance and Moorish-Spain style
