Letna Park and Beer Garden

Check out this glorious park on your way to or from Prague Castle and enjoy the spectacular view. There’s a beer garden on the south side of the park, but we really like the Stalin viewpoint, an open-air culture center with an intriguing history, that serves up live music and local color.

Prague Passages

Meander through the center of Prague without stepping a foot outside via its unique passageways. Called pasáž in Czech, these historic arcades are a great way to skip the tourist crowds while many of them house boutiques, cafes, and noteworthy architectural features. One of note: Art nouveau Lucerna Passage, accesible via Štěpánská or Vodičkova street.
