Park Ladronka – Get Sporty!

Park Ladronka might have been a calm and empty park some years ago. But ever since the Prague city hall renewed the paths and added free open-air fitness stops, the park has been crowded with bikers, in-line skaters and runners. Luckily, there are still a few places to rest, so do not feel pressed to come and sweat blood.

In the middle of the park, there is an ancient manor which gave the park its name. Its history. according to modern hurried times, sounds something like this: vineyards of Charles IV. (14th century), manor of Filip Ferdinand de la Crone (17th century), destroyed (19th century), housing for few families (first half of 20th century), storehouse (second half of 20th century), housing for squatters and center of alternative culture (1993 – 2000).

In Park Ladronka you can go running, in-line skating, play frisbee, beach volleyball (200 CZK per hour), and do hundreds of other activities you think of when you see an opened green field. If you love in-line skating, rent a pair of skates in the manor. The rental is open from Monday to Friday from 12 pm to 8 pm & 10 am to 8 pm on weekends.

One pair for 1 hour costs 100 CZK and gets cheaper with every additional person. You can also rent a ball, frisbee, pétanque or badminton set, which must be really interesting to use on this windy hill.
