Description

Letná Park is a large park on Letná hill, built on a plateau above steep embankments along the Vltava River in Prague. Letná’s elevation and location afford commanding views of the Prague Old Town. In 1955, a large monument to Joseph Stalin was erected at the edge of Letná Park. This statue was destroyed in 1962 and the Prague Metronome now occupies the site. During the Velvet Revolution, a plain next to the Letná Park was the site of some important demonstrations against the Communist government. On the 25th and 26 November 1989 approximately 750000 people protested in here. These protests were followed by a general nationwide strike on 27 November 1989. Pop Superstar Michael Jackson kicked off his World Tour at the park on September 7, 1996, approximately 127000 people attended the concert.
