Where there once was a statue of Joseph Stalin now stands the Metronome in the centre of Prague. This is a fully functional instrument that keeps time as it overlooks the Vlatka River. It was designed by the acclaimed artist, Vratislav Novak. It stands 23 metres tall and was built in 1991. It is now a major landmark within the city and is known for being a meeting place for young people, especially as there is a skateboard plaza behind it. It is said that one of the best views of the city can be had from the Metronome.
- Have a picnic in the shadow of the Metronome and enjoy the view of Prague, especially lovely in the sunset hours, just be sure to stay clear of the skaters.
- Meet with friends at the nuclear bunkers that are directly underneath this sturdy time keeper in Prague and are a legacy of the Cold War that so influenced the history of the world.
- Walk just a short distance from the Metronome and enjoy a meal at the Hanavsky Pavilion, which was built in the 1800's and is now a café.
The Metronome can be accessed from the city centre by walking across the Stefaniku Bridge. Driving oneself is not recommended, and though taxis are available they are expensive. Public transportation, however, is excellent and consists of metros, trams, and buses. Trains run from just before 5 am and stop running after midnight. The two trams run scenic and historic routes along the old tracks. Buses run the on the outside of the city where there are no metro stations so you'll have to transfer if coming from the outskirts of Prague.
